Tipperary Town Plaza has won a prestigious prize at the glamourous Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Awards in Dublin. The site took home the important technical award for Best Use of Category Management. Accepting the award, store manager Paudie Byrne said: “I’m delighted. This means so much. The site is only 18 months in business and it’s our first award so it’s great to get a plaque on the wall.” Like all finalists, the Co Tipperary site underwent rigorous independent judging, including mystery shopping visits, to overcome competition throughout the island of Ireland. Set in the fabulous DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Dublin, on Thursday September 15, and hosted by Irish broadcaster Gráinne Seoige, the awards celebrated the finest convenience retailers from across Ireland north and south.
