Accepting the award Derek Downes, EUROSPAR Templemore said: “We are delighted to receive this accolade which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff. Customer First @EUROSPAR is not only a mark of pride for our store and staff, but more importantly, it lets our customers know that we are leaders in the field. This accolade is a point of differentiation in what is a very competitive marketplace and we’re honoured to receive the recognition.”

According to Malachy Hanberry, Managing Director, EUROSPAR: “EUROSPAR supermarkets are renowned for demonstrating industry leading standards. I would like to commend Downes’ EUROSPAR Templemore on their achievement today. The Customer First @ EUROSPAR standards programme was developed with our retailers and for our retailers, to ensure that our supermarkets are leading the way in terms of fresh food retailing, innovation, food safety and customer service. EUROSPAR stores around Ireland are becoming ‘Famous for Fresh Foods’ and the Customer First @ EUROSPAR programme works to assist retailers in achieving this aim. Congratulations to all EUROSPAR retailers who achieved the Customer First @ EUROSPAR Award.”
