SPAR stores receive top accolade for retail excellence

SPAR 365 Standards Customer Care Tallaght

23 SPAR stores in South Dublin were honoured at the recent SPAR 365 Standards Customer Care Programme for achieving exceptional standards in retailing, which was held in Lawlor’s Hotel and hosted by BWG Foods, owners and operators of the SPAR brand in Ireland. This year’s SPAR 365 Awards, held in association with independent bodies Solution Management Associates (SMA) and Lloyds Register Quality Assurance LRQA, recognise those SPAR stores who have excelled during the year across all areas of store. In winning these awards, the SPAR stores were independently assessed across a range of criteria including customer service through SMA as well as a robust Food Safety and Hygiene audit conducted by LRQA. These exemplary SPAR retailers received their award in recognition of their commitment to implementing Best practice store standards throughout their store, thereby providing an excellent customer experience to their local community.

The local stores who received a SPAR 365 Retailing Standards Award are Imitaz Anwar, Anwar’s SPAR Tallaght Village and David Bagnall, Bagnall’s SPAR Parkwest. 

Congratulating the winners, Colin Donnelly, SPAR Sales Director, said: “The SPAR 365 Standards Customer Care Programme recognise those Retailers who, through their ongoing  commitment to outstanding retail standards and customer service, continue to set the benchmark for the SPAR brand and the Retail Marketplace overall. I congratulate all the SPAR winners from South Dublin. Their efforts have been truly outstanding and this recognition is very well-deserved.”
