Commenting on the news David Fitzsimons, Group CEO at Retail Excellence said: “This is some achievement for the teams in Freshii and Fallers Jewellers. Over 550 stores entered the process back in May and now we have arrived at determining the Top30 stores in Ireland. Each of the 30 will now be visited by UK retail trends company Echochamber and be invited to make a financial submission to Grant Thornton. The competition has been intense this year and the Top30 includes some notable stores including Brown Thomas, Dublin and legendary Cork book store Vibes and Scribes. We wish each of the Top30 stores the very best for the rest of the competition.”
