LIKE the mythical Phoenix, Daly’s SUPA IGA Portland supermarket has risen from the ashes to be awarded Retailer of the Year at the IGA Victorian Retailer of the Year Awards – beating almost 100 other SUPA IGA stores for the honour.
The store was also the recipient of two other awards in the SUPA IGA category – Checkout Service Department of The Year Award and Grocery Department of The Year Award – in addition to receiving five other nominations including the Store Manager of The Year Award.
The Heywood IGA received that award of IGA Checkout and Service of The Year, and received two additional nominations.
The awards recognise the efforts of store owners, the Daly family, and their staff just two years after the Portland store was gutted by fire.
Commenting on the awards, Michael Daly said, “It is such an honour to have won these accolades amongst the state’s many outstanding SUPA IGA supermarkets.”
