C-Store Awards 2019: All the Winners 

Texaco Spar Parkway in Co. Limerick took home the award for Convenience Store of the Year at the 2019 ShelfLife C-Store Awards last night, beating off stiff competition to scoop the ultimate accolade.

Dublin’s Citywest Hotel played host to Ireland’s top retailers and brands who gathered to attend the prestigious ceremony and celebrate the best and brightest retailers and their stores. Alongside Spar Parkway, the big winners on the night included Londis DCU who won two awards including Best New C-Store Concept/ Offering 2019 and Tesco Sandymount- Best Convenience Store (4,000 sq. ft+) among many others. In total, 42 awards were presented on the night in a range of categories.

The ceremony included a special presentation of the Convenience Champion of the Year 2019 award which was presented to Peter Boland, Director of the Alliance for Insurance Reform. Peter Boland has been instrumental in driving the success of the Alliance for Insurance Reform since its establishment last year. The Alliance was formed amid Ireland’s current ‘compensation culture’, which is having serious financial repercussions for retailers. The Alliance has so far been involved in the Judicial Council, the legal services regulatory authority and the National Claims Information database. Peter Boland passionately discussed this progress in his acceptance speech last night while continuing to push for urgently needed reform.

Now in their 19th year, the C-Store Awards are the only comprehensive and independently judged business accolades for the convenience store sector. Excel Recruitment has been proudly associated with these prestigious awards since their beginning. This year, our Senior Grocery Consultant Christabelle Pierce was delighted to present the award for Best Impulse Offering to Spar Little Island, Cork.  From all the Excel Recruitment team, congratulations to all the worthy winners.
