A number of Mace stores from around the country, including two in Roscommon, have been recognised for achieving high standards in retailing at the annual Mace Excellence Awards, held recently in the Sheraton Athlone Hotel, Co. Westmeath.
Lyons’ Mace Castlerea and McDonagh’s Mace Boyle were part of a special group of retailers who received the Excellence Award.
Retailers who achieve the Mace Excellence Award must comply with a strict set of criteria which involves stores being rigorously monitored throughout the year in areas such as shop presentation, food safety and legal compliance.
The assessment also involves surprise audits carried out on an ongoing basis throughout the year by mystery shoppers as well as Mace personnel to ensure that the highest possible standards are being upheld on a continuous basis.
Mace is the longest established convenience brand in Ireland, serving local communities for more than 50 years. Operated by independent retailers, the network includes local community stores as well as forecourt shopping, with approximately 240 stores around the country.
