Insomnia Thurles is a top 30 store 2022

We’re delighted to announce that Insomnia Thurles has been selected as a Top 30 Finalist in the 2022 AIBMS Retail Excellence Awards, the only store in Tipperary to make it into the Top 30.


The Top 30 list comprises of retailers from around the country in every sector within the Irish Retail Industry, vying to be Ireland’s National Store of the Year. The Store of the Year competition is the central part of the Retail Excellence Annual Awards, which were established in 1997 to promote best practice and encourage the highest standards in the Irish Retail Industry. They are now the largest and most prestigious of their kind in Ireland.

The Top 30 stores will now be rigorously tested with a financial audit and an onsite visit from Retail Excellence and Echochamber. The sectoral category winners, Top5 Stores and the National Store of the Year will be announced next month.


Harry O Kelly CEO of Insomnia said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Thurles has been recognised as a Top30 store, our store manager Bozena and her team have done an amazing job since the store opened, continuously providing exceptional customer service and of course delivering the best cup of coffee to each customer every single time they visit”. 

Duncan Graham, Managing Director of Retail Excellence said “Huge congratulations to all finalists in achieving Top30 Status in the AIBMS Retail Excellence Awards 2022. We had over 400 entries this year and it is an outstanding achievement to make it through as one of the Top30 stores in Ireland”.

All of us in Insomnia HQ and Insomnia Thurles are looking forward to the award ceremony and to celebrating this amazing achievement for Bozena and her team.
