FIRST QUARTER CORK BUSINESS ASSOCIATION
BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD 2012
Herlihy Centra Grand Parade and Oliver Plunkett Street are part of the Herlihy Supermarket Group, which also includes Centra stores in Bishopstown, Fermoy, Mallow and Millstreet.
Herlihys Centra provide a unique offering in the market place – a full range of product delivered through the Musgrave Retail Partners supply chain at very competitive prices and a range of quality ‘Herlihy’ produced fresh foods served by friendly and efficient staff. This is unique in a market where old fashioned standards of customer service have become less visible in the last few years and the offering in the grocery market has become generic.
Commenting on the Cork Business of the Year Quarterly Award director Kevin Herlihy stated “It is excellent to start 2012 by achieving this recognition from local business. Herlihy Centra’s roots are firmly placed in the community here in Cork, my parents started this business over thirty years ago in Bishopstown and both the Oliver Plunkett Street and Grand Parade stores have been in operation since the late nineties. Fresh food and customer service are the cornerstones of our business and seeing them recognised by The Cork Business Association is a great achievement”.
