Mann’s MACE Tullamore received one of retail’s highest honours at the recent MACE Excellence Awards.

Retailers from all over Ireland gathered at the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone, for the prestigious awards ceremony run by BWG Foods, owners and operators of the MACE brand in Ireland.

The MACE Excellence Awards are only given to MACE stores that pass a grueling year-long inspection, including unannounced audits and visits from mystery shoppers.

Mann’s MACE Tullamore was the only Offaly store to be given a MACE Excellence award.

Congratulating the Award winners, Willie O’Byrne, Managing Director, BWG Foods, said, “MACE retailers strive for excellence in every aspect of their service to their shoppers and the local communities in which they are embedded. In meeting the exacting standards of the MACE Excellence Programme MACE retailers and their staff consistently improve customer service in their stores. Achieving the MACE Excellence Award is further recognition of the high level of standards and service in MACE stores. I am proud to honour and congratulate Brendan Mann, MACE retailer from Offaly on his success in this year’s MACE Excellence Awards.”

The MACE Excellence awards are now in their 11th year
