We are delighted to win the Tomas Clancy Sunday Business Post award AGAINthis year!!
Far from being a burden as Tomas suggests it might be, it's a pleasure to receive this award again - it means so much to the O'Briens team.
From our teams in the stores,our wineproducersaround the world, our craft beer suppliers, all of our Irish suppliers and our head office team;a big THANK YOU to Tomas and The Sunday Business Post!
"In a way, this award has probably become more of a burden for O'Briens Wines than a pleasure. The fact remains that no other European state has a comparable multiple wine chain ofsuch quality, ambition and diversity.
Their wine, beer and spirits offering is excellent and extensive. Their staff training and the quality of their staff is excellent. Their systems and category management is excellent.
Their sourcing is excellent. The cleanliness and quality of their shops and shop architecture is excellent.
Their wine information anddescriptors are excellent. Their pricing is excellentand monthly sales promotions runlike clockwork.
Their national reach is excellentand their consumer engagement is beyond excellent."
