‘It’s a big thing to be recog­nised in your county’

2016 WIN­NERS: GAR­VEY’S SU­PERVALU, ROCK STREET, TRALEE

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

THE ‘Best Over­all Busi­ness Award’ at the in­au­gu­ral stag­ing of The Ker­ry­man Busi­ness Awards went to Gar­vey’s Su­perValu, Rock Street.

The in­de­pen­dent judg­ing panel took many fac­tors into con­sid­er­a­tion when choos­ing this wor­thy win­ner and chief among them was the €2.2 mil­lion in­vest­ment which trans­formed the Tralee store into a mod­ern, new fa­cil­ity, which a year later is sus­tain­ing and cre­at­ing lo­cal em­ploy­ment in the town.

Gar­vey’s Su­perValu were in con­tention for three of the nine cat­e­gories up for grabs at last year’s event, also win­ning ‘Best Re­tail Premises Award’.

“They’re wor­thy win­ners as they have in­vested hugely in their premises mak­ing it a place of high qual­ity and con­ve­nience for cus­tomers. As well as be­ing a great em­ployer, they also sup­port many lo­cal food sup­pli­ers,” said Siob­han Mur­phy, Ad­ver­tis­ing and Mar­ket­ing Man­ager at The Ker­ry­man.

Mean­while, Tim Moyni­han, As­sis­tant Man­ager at Gar­vey’s, Rock Street, said of the win: “Ob­vi­ously we were thrilled to get the award and it’s al­ways a big thing to be recog­nised in your own county. Ev­ery­one is aware of the in­vest­ment put into the Rock Street store by the Gar­vey Group and with the stan­dards raised.”

Tim added: “We pride our­selves on sup­port­ing lo­cal and this award is a fit­ting tes­ta­ment to that ap­proach.

“We’re very proud of the store and it’s one of the best in the county, if not the coun­try. It’s the cul­mi­na­tion of hard work and a ded­i­cated team of staff and we’re pleased this was recog­nised by the judges.”
