McAtamney’s Butcher has brought home another major award from a ceremony in Belfast to add to a growing collection of honours. The Coleraine shop was awarded “Northern Ireland Butchers Shop of the Year 2016” at the annual gala ceremony on 14th October, organised by the Northern Ireland Neighbourhood Retailers.
The Neighbourhood Retailer Awards celebrate and showcase the very best of Northern Ireland’s grocery retail industry by providing recognition for innovation and outstanding contribution and is now celebrating its 18th year.
McAtamney’s Butchers had four for their nine shops shortlisted as finalists in this hotly contested category (Ballymoney, Coleraine, Garvagh and Ballymena) highlighting the driving force and commitment to providing excellence in retailing.
Farm quality assured produce and excellence in customer service provision is at the core of McAtamney’s ethos and continues to be the recipe for its success as it follows the recent announcement that it will be opening another new store over the coming months in Galgorm, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, creating ten new jobs.
This will add to the nine McAtamney’s shops in Ballymena (beside Fairhill Shopping Centre), Ballymoney, Coleraine, Cookstown, Garvagh, Limavady, Kilrea, Magherafelt and Maghera. The news of the Galgorm shop, which will be located just off the Galgorm Roundabout, has been well received and McAtamney’s looks forward to working on this project with the view to opening in early 2017.
The good news for McAtamney’s does not stop there as ambitious plans are in place to open a further two stores in Northern Ireland over the next 18-24 months and increase the current staff of 100 to 150.
