Topaz, the country’s biggest fuel and convenience retailer, has picked up an accolade at a prestigious industry event. The Topaz Dublin Port site has been named as the Forecourt Retailer of the Year at the recent 2009 ShelfLife C-Store Awards.


Topaz Dublin Port offers customers a wide range of choice, and various customer service options. The store has a large deli counter, with a seating area to enjoy a snack. Upstairs there is a full-service restaurant with an extensive menu, and a drivers’ lounge. Shower facilities and internet kiosks make it extremely convenient for those on the go.  

Frank Gleeson, retail director of Topaz, said the company is delighted with the honour. “Dublin Port is one of our flagship stores and we are extremely proud of it. It offers customers a wide variety of services, and caters to a large customer base – from truck drivers to families. Being recognised for this award is a fantastic achievement as it means the services we’re providing to our customers are deemed to be of the highest standard by those in the industry.“

The ShelfLife awards, now in their tenth year, were held in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire. They recognize perfect examples of ‘professional, modern and innovative retailing’, and are one of the most distinguished honours in the industry.
