Wexford Spar stores awarded five stars

By Sara Gahan

Two Wexford Spar stores have been awarded the annual 'Spar 5 Star Award', one of retail's highest honours, at the Killashee House, Kildare.

Spar retailers from across Ireland attended the awards ceremony hosted by BWG foods - owners and operators of the Spar brand in Ireland.

The two Wexford winners - Byrne's Spar, Bree, and Conway's Spar, Taghmon - excelled in all areas of inspection and displaying exemplary standards across their stores.

'Maintaining the highest standards in customer care and food safety consistently on a daily basis is no easy feat and these retailers work extremely hard in order to achieve this.

'I'm delighted to see two Wexford stores achieve the mark this year and get the recognition they deserve,' said Spar Sales Director Colin Donnelly.

It is a rolling scheme where participants must undergo rigorous year long assessments.

The awards were given to stores that demonstrated outstanding industry excellence following a year of comprehensive inspections, visits from mystery shoppers and audits.
