Tasting the sweetness of success, McCullagh’s Classic took the top prize at this year’s Neighbourhood Retailer Awards.

The Omagh store secured the prestigious title having impressed the judges with its “exceptional retail standards everywhere in the store” while they were also praised for their attention to detail, which was described as “outstanding”.

The judges felt the product range, facilities and services were “geared perfectly to the customer”.

Indeed, the Retailer of the Year award saw McCullagh’s take a triple crown of titles, having also been named Forecourt of the Year Category 2 and Food To Go Store of the Year, marking a hugely successful evening for the store, its owners and staff.

The judges remarked that despite having “significant competition”, McCullagh’s Classic have “risen to the challenge in a positive way with clear and focused business strategies that have brought about evident benefits”.

“The store is at the heart of the community and takes this responsibility seriously by investing both their time and money in local initiatives that are beneficial to the community and help drive footfall,” added the judges.

Independently judged by Spotcheck, the awards are judged to exacting standards over a three-month period.

Now in their 26th year, the Neighbourhood Retailer Awards reward excellence, recognise achievement, raise industry standards and reward entrepreneurial spirit.

McCullagh’s Classic was also praised for their “extensive fresh and food to go offering” with the judges noting the store has “really tuned into their customers’ needs in terms of the food offering”.

“They have provided fantastic choice of freshly prepared and cooked food to suit all tastes – much more than expected.”
