Local Centra stores recognised with shortlistings at prestigious UK Retail Industry Awards. Conway’s Centra Dunman in Cookstown and 2023 winner Bradley’s Centra Maghera, are set to battle for the title of Drinks Retailer of the Year at this year’s UK Retail Industry Awards, which are widely regarded as ‘The Oscars’ of the grocery sector. The stores have also both made it to the finals of a further two categories each.

Centra Dunman is a finalist in the Forecourt Retail of the Year (up to 3,000 sq ft) and Food-to-Go Retailer of the Year categories, while Centra Maghera has been shortlisted in the Best Use of Technology category and store manager Eoghan Jordan is a Store Manager of the Year finalist.

Rewarding excellence and outstanding achievement across a broad range of categories, while recognising independent retailers alongside the large supermarket groups, the Retail Industry Awards will take place on 18th September in London.
