Local business Fiveways scoops prestigious business award
Newry’s new Nisa Extra, Fiveways has gained national recognition at the 14th annual Neighbourhood Retailer Awards in Belfast last Friday.
The country’s most prestigious awards ceremony for the grocery retailing industry and backed by Neighbourhood Retailer magazine, the NR Awards were attended by more than 400 industry professionals who saw NI’s leading retailers pick up prestigious industry accolades.
Nisa Extra, Fiveways won Off-Licence of the Year and commenting on the win, Dominic O’Hare, Nisa Extra Fiveways said: “We’re very happy to have won off-licence of the year. It’s a great win for team and the store and is a reward for all the hard work that has been put in by the staff.”
Commenting on the success of the awards, Bill Penton, Neighbourhood Retailer publisher said: “We are delighted that we had more that 450 entries this year and the quality of entries just gets better and better.”
He added: “The Neighbourhood Retailer Awards are a showcase of Northern Ireland’s finest independent grocery retailers and create a pivotal industry event that rewards excellence in retailing.”
Commenting on the awards, Paul Hoy, Bank Machine’s area sales manager, Northern Ireland and platinum awards sponsor said: “In an increasingly contact-less society, the ‘personal touch’ provided by neighbourhood retailing is on the up.
“Cash is the life-blood of this service, ensuring customers get swift transactions but also meaningful, human interaction. We are over the moon to see just how many winning entrants into the awards have free to use Bank Machine ATMs within their stores.
Hoy added, “Bank Machine’s latest statistics show that our ATMs are now attracting in excess of 1,000,000 transactions per month, so we know that cash continues to be king in Northern Ireland.”
