On collecting their award Donal Fitzpatrick, Monasterevin said: “With all the hard work that goes into raising standards in store and improving the business, this is real recognition of our efforts. We are delighted to have been acknowledged within the industry.”

On the night, ShelfLife welcomed more than 450 guests from across the industry. A total of 42 awards were presented, celebrating the industry’s finest stores and people in a diverse range of categories.
