The Arboretum with branches in Leighlinbridge in Co. Carlow and Kilquade in Co. Wicklow has been named National Retailer of the Year in the annual Retail Excellence awards.
Fergal Boyle, of the Arboretum paid tribute to the team of over 130 people between the two locations who have worked tirelessly over the past two years.
He said: “We are thrilled with this award and we regard it as a wonderful acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication which our team have shown over the past two years. It has been an incredibly difficult year or two between the pandemic, the various lockdowns and the challenges that people are facing every day of the week but our team has kept going throughout everything and they are the reason we have won this award.”
Duncan Graham, Chief Executive of Retail Excellence said that Arboretum was a wonderful example of Irish retail: “The Doyles have created a magnificent retail experience and they are worthy winners of the title National Retailer of the Year.”
