Big scoop for Scally’s at Checkout retail awards

Celebrating winning the ‘Most Creative Retailer’ at Checkout’s ‘Best in Fresh’ awards were Eoghan, Caitriona and Eugene Scally of Scally’s SuperValu in Clonakilty.

SCALLY’S SuperValu in Clonakilty has scooped the prestigious award for ‘Most Creative Retailer’ in Ireland at the annual Checkout ‘Best in Fresh’ awards. This award acknowledges Scally’s SuperValu in their ongoing commitment to delivering an unrivalled fresh offering at great value prices, while striving to support Irish suppliers.   

Some of the biggest names in Irish grocery descended on The Shelbourne for the 2017 Checkout Best in FreshAwards, the only annual event to acknowledge excellence in fresh produce retailing.  

More than 200 retailers were present to celebrate outstanding industry achievements in the areas of fruit and veg offerings, fresh meat and fish, food-to-go and the myriad other categories that comprise a winning, fresh offering.

Presenting the award, editor of Checkout Magazine, Jenny Whelan said: Innovation and Scally’s go hand in hand, and every time you pay a visit to this store there seems to be an impressive new addition … whether it be the gluten-free bakery, new savoury snack bar, or the ‘spice souk’ concept, which makes it easy for customers to try out new flavours. Consistently it’s one of Ireland’s best stores.’

Eugene Scally  said: ‘We are extremely proud to have won this prestigious Checkout award for ‘Most Creative Retailer’. This is a real endorsement of the work we do on a daily basis, to ensure that our customers receive the best range and choice of fresh produce, in the best environment and at the best value.’

Martin Kelleher, managing director of SuperValu, said the ‘Best in Fresh’ awards celebrate the very best in Irish grocery retailing.
