Quish’s are no strangers to winning awards and have once again flown the flag for Waterford at the National Grocery Awards by winning the Irelands Best In-Store Off Licence and being finalists in Irelands Retail Store of the Year and Irelands Best Fruit & Vegetable Offering.

Commenting on the awards Cormac Quish said “ we have always pushed for excellence in everything we do in Tramore, we are proud to be trading in the heart of Tramore for over 25 years and supporting the local community through our sponsorship of Tramore GAA, Tramore AFC and of course Tramore Tidy Towns who themselves won a silver medal at the National Tidy Towns Awards,  these new National Grocery Awards are highly competitive with entries from across the country from all the big national retailers and we are delighted for all the team in Tramore to once again be winning on the national stage”

The new awards scheme is an amalgam of Ireland’s premier awards for fresh food retailing, the Checkout Best in Fresh awards, and the leading awards for suppliers to the industry, the Checkout National Retail Supplier awards.

“The individual stores, retailers and suppliers that have excelled in these awards are those that have demonstrated innovation and responsiveness to consumer trends,” says Maev Martin, editor, Checkout magazine.

“These are the hallmarks of a leading grocery supply and retail operation. Our winners have set new standards because they bring their passions and dreams of what a store can be to life to create the perfect shopping experience."

By amalgamating these awards, and adding some new award categories, Checkout has created the most prestigious and inclusive awards for the grocery retail sector in Ireland. As such, the National Grocery Retail Awards is set to become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the Irish grocery retail calendar,” Martin adds.
