The MACE store in Clara was honoured at the recent MACE Excellence Awards for achieving exceptional standards in retailing, which was held in the Heritage Hotel and Spa in Killenard in Co Laois, and hosted by BWG Foods, owners and operators of the MACE brand.

The MACE Excellence Awards, held in association with the Excellence Ireland Quality Association, are only awarded to MACE stores that pass an intensive year-long inspection, including unannounced audits and visits from mystery shoppers.

Lambe’s MACE Clara received a MACE Excellence Award for 2018.

Congratulating the winners, Daniel O’Connell, MACE Sales Director, said: “The MACE Excellence Awards recognise those who, through their commitment to outstanding retail standards and customer service, continue to set the benchmark for the brand and marketplace overall. Increasingly high standards are undoubtedly contributing to the continued success of MACE."

"I want to congratulate Rita Lambe and her team at MACE Clara. Their efforts have been truly outstanding and their recognition is very well-deserved.”

MACE is the longest-serving convenience brand in Ireland, serving local communities for more than 50 years. Operated by independent retailers, the network includes local community stores as well as forecourt shopping, with over 160 MACE stores located around the country.
