Design and furniture company Instore has received national recognition at the FBD Retail Excellence Ireland Awards after it was named National Store of the Year 2009 at the country’s largest retail sector awards.
The award was presented out of 420 entries for the retail excellence awards. Owner and founder of Instore, Oliver Moloney said it is a huge honour to win the award in what are tough economic times for the sector.
“At Instore, we are still committed to the same philosophy that we started out with 21 years ago - that quality and design should include affordable furniture – and I believe that’s what will keep us in business for at least another 21 years,” he said.
Overall winner, Instore, is a fully Irish owned business founded by Mr Moloney in 1988 with the goal of bringing something new and unique to the Irish furniture retail market.
Headquartered in Limerick, and employing more than 100 people nationwide, there are seven Instore shops around the country – two each in Limerick and Cork and one each in Waterford, Galway, and Dublin.
