Winning a National C-Store Award is a huge badge of honour. Good luck with your entry!

John McDonald, Publisher, ShelfLife

Since 2000 the ShelfLife National C-Store Awards has represented retail excellence on a national level. Across each of the entry categories, these awards are designed to recognise and reward the very best of convenience retailing in all its key areas of operation.

As Ireland’s only independently judged awards programme for the sector, the ShelfLife National C-Store Awards are an important mark of excellence in a highly competitive industry. Winning an award is not just a badge of honour for your store, it’s also a big morale boost for your team and a way of recognising those who ‘go the extra mile’.

All entry forms are online at where you can also browse a gallery of current award holders in each category. You may enter the main store awards or any of the specialist categories. The awards programme is designed to compare like with like, so all stores have an equal chance of winning. The overall winner will be selected by the judges.

Take the first step NOW: review the online forms and start preparing your entry. Finalists and winners will be invited to attend the gala awards dinner as guests of ShelfLife, celebrating with hundreds of the trade’s leading retailers and suppliers. Good luck!
