Waterford Business Awards 2018
Any lingering January blues were instantly banished here this week with the announcement by Waterford Chamber of Commerce that we are shortlisted in the Best in Retail Category in the Waterford Business Awards!
The Awards promote and celebrate individuals and businesses that make a valuable contribution to the economic & social fabric of Waterford City and County. The Waterford Chamber of Commerce Business Awards are a very meaningful endorsement by our peers, there is a very strong judging process which is evident in the quality and range of the finalists, all superb businesses across diverse sectors. Many of the shortlisted businesses are household names that the public already regard very highly. Others are dynamic and trailblazing business that are not as well-known because they operate under the radar in specialist or export markets. This is a great opportunity for us all to learn more, recognise and celebrate excellence all around us.
Last year was a great year for Ardkeen Quality Food Store. We were nominated in the Best in Retail award but also named as Waterford Business of the Year! It was quite a shock on the night but a superb start to our 50th birthday celebrations. We were overwhelmed by the number of customers that took the time to share memories about Ardkeen Quality Food Store over the past 50 years. We really appreciate their loyalty that has made enabled our business to make it into its 51st year in such good shape. Together with our Suppliers and Staff we have an unbeatable team and we’re looking forward to the challenges of 2018 with great enthusiasm.
