Bishopstown store scoops National Wine Store of the Year Award

3rd November 2009 – Herlihy’s Centra, Bishopstown were announced the national winners of the Irish Distillers Wine Store of the Year Award. The 7th annual off licence and wine store of the year awards took place in the Old Jameson Distillery, Smithfield, Dublin.

The store owned by the Herlihy brothers and managed by Denis Murray, received the prestigious award after fending off stiff competition from over 22 other shortlisted stores nationwide. The awards are a major event in the Irish retail calendar, with over 170 stores participating this year. The overall winners will enjoy a wine education trip to Vina Concha Y Toro in Chile.

Each entry was assessed across a number of key criteria, including overall layout and standards across the wine department, wine selection, value, promotions as well as customer focused and qualified staff.

Commenting on the award, store owner Brian Herlihy said, “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award, having faced tough competition from other extremely good retailers across the country. The awards acknowledge the exceptionally good wine department that we have developed over the years in our store. We provide a large selection of wines at good value prices – wines to suit all palates and budgets. We consistently run strong promotions and our staff go that extra mile to ensure they are knowledgeable in the area, along with providing the highest levels of customer service and standards across the department.”
