An “attractive and vibrant store” with ample stock for customers secured the top award in its category at the 2022 Neighbourhood Retailer Awards.

Creightons of Blacks Road, Belfast took home the title for Neighbourhood Store of the Year (Category 2) and following the gala awards night spoke of their delight at winning.

“We are absolutely delighted to have won this year,” said Pauline Elliott from Creightons.

“My team and I are very passionate about retail standards and ensuring that we have everything so that we meet our customers’ expectations,” she added.

Indeed, this was one of the factors which impressed the judges for this category.

“This attractive and vibrant store was bursting with stock and provided the customer with everything they might need. The range of services available was exceptional and staff were attentive and happy to help,” they noted.

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.

“We have great customers who are very loyal and they too are delighted that we have been recognised,” added Pauline.
