KP Snacks has announced Rooney’s EUROSPAR in Enniskillen as its Local Legend retailer champion with an impressive 24% of the overall vote cast by customers from all over Northern Ireland.

The Local Legend search began in August and sought to shine a well-deserved light on deserving local retailers as well as thank them for their hard work during the pandemic and years of service to their community.

Customers were asked to nominate the SPAR or EUROSPAR which they ‘couldn’t do without’ and which they felt has acted as a local legend throughout the pandemic in continuing to keep families well looked-after and stocked up on their necessities.

Over 150 nominations were received for stores all over NI with almost a quarter of these singing the praises of Rooney’s EUROSPAR, Enniskillen who will receive £100 worth of KP Snacks stock as a prize for all their hard work as well as a KP Snacks Local Legend trophy.

Rooney’s store was a strong favourite with customers emphasising its friendly, helpful and professional manner as well as its approach in consistently going above and beyond expectations for each and every customer. It was described as ‘brilliant in every way’ and a ‘fabulous family-run business who always puts the local community first’.

The business was also praised for how it continued to put the community first during the pandemic with customers applauding the retailer as a ‘great, safe environment who really looked after the elderly as well as those who were shielding’.

“Our local retailers are extremely important to us and whilst the year has been particularly challenging for them they have continued to work tirelessly to keep shelves stocked up as well as provide a helping hand to local communities when needed,” said Ricky Watts, KP Snacks business account manager for Northern Ireland.

“We introduced the Local Legend Retailer Award to highlight just how important our local retailers are across the province and for customers to celebrate the brilliant service they provide.

“On behalf of KP Snacks we want to thank all our local retailers across NI for their continued support, especially through these difficult times.”

KP Snacks owns some of the biggest crisp, snacks and nuts brands in the Northern Ireland market, including McCoy’s, Hula Hoops, KP Nuts, Butterkist, Skips, Space Raiders, Discos, Pom-Bear, Nik Naks, Roysters, Frisps and Popchips.
