Often regarded as the Oscars of the retail industry, the Retail Industry Awards 2019 were held at The Brewery, London, where the store was awarded ‘Independent Fresh Produce Retailer of the Year’ for the third year in a row.



There was also recognition for Thomas Magennis, who took home the ‘Independent Store Manager of the Year’ award.

The judges praised Thomas’ “innovative” ideas and hands-on approach, noting his dedication to building positive relationships with both staff and customers.

Meanwhile, the store was awarded the ‘Best Use of Category Management’ title at the Ireland’s Forecourt and Convenience Retailer Awards which took place in Dublin last week.

Henderson Retail, part of the Henderson Group which owns the SPAR and EUROSPAR brands in Northern Ireland, also scooped the Multiple Regional Fresh Produce Retailer of the Year and Multiple Community Retailer of the Year at the RIA’s, which reward excellence and outstanding achievement across a broad range of categories.



Mark McCammond, Retail Director at Henderson Group commented, “We have many of the best retail managers and most highly committed store teams trading from well invested, contemporary retail outlets.

He added, “They share our vision for success, which is why we have seen an uplift in retailers joining Hendersons to boost their sales and margins and put their name behind a brand they can be proud of.”

Paddy Doody, Sales & Marketing Director at Henderson Group said, “The awards over the past week have been fantastic and we are both pleased for and proud of Mulkerns’ EUROSPAR continuing their winning streak.”



Mairead Mulkerns told Newry Times, “We are ecstatic to have been awarded the Fresh Produce Retailer of the Year title for the third consecutive year, it’s a great honour and we are very proud of the wide variety of fresh and local products available in our store.

“We are also so pleased for our store manager Thomas Magennis – being named ‘Store Manager of the Year’ is a testament to his dedication to our staff and customers.

She added, “It has been a great week for Mulkerns’ EUROSPAR!”
