5 Listowel Businesses among the 7 listed from Kerry…
Seven businesses from Kerry have been selected on a list of Ireland’s Top 100 Retail Businesses, with an incredible five of those, based in Listowel.
Covering all areas of business from Garden, Home & Living, to Fashion and Food, Listowel has proven excellence across all areas evident from the businesses selected; Coco At The Arcade, John R’s Foodhall, Listowel Garden Centre, Lizzy’s Little Kitchen and McKennas.

Deputy Mayor of Listowel Cllr Michael Kennelly “It is only right given the very high standard here in Listowel of service and customer engagement amongst the businesses and I am thrilled to join in and congratulate the five businesses on their success in making it to the Top 100”.

During Retail Excellence Ireland’s Top 100 selection process, all store entrants were visited by a mystery shopper, with those exceeding service and standards criteria making it onto the list. The award recognises the unique customer experience offered by each business and is measured at an incredibly high standard.

Rose Wall, Chairperson of Listowel Business & Community Alliance, of whom all 5 businesses are members, stated ”We are thrilled that five Listowel Businesses have been selected in Ireland’s Top 100 Retail Businesses as it’s great recognition for their sheer hard work and commitment. It’s also a fantastic boost for business in the North Kerry area and further shows the quality offering we have here in Listowel”
