Gee’s Wine Shop has been cheering their success after taking the accolade of Off Licence of the Year at the 2022 Neighbourhood Retailer gala awards.

The Londonderry business won the title, crowning a successful period for the company, which included the opening of their new store on the Rossdowney Road in September last year.

The judges described the store as “attractive” while singling out its “innovative and exceptional range”.

There was also praise heaped on the staff at Gee’s Wine Shop, with the judge remarking they were “knowledgeable and enthusiastic”, while also giving some “really good recommendations”.

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.

Store owner, Eamonn Gee said he was “delighted to have won the award” and said he was also delighted for all the staff.

“It’s a recognition for them and their hard work, as much as it is for me,” he said.
