~ Q4 Cork Business Association ‘Business of the Year’ Award winner ~
Phelans Pharmacy, Medical and Mobility Supplies, has been announced as Q4 winners of the Cork Business Awards today by the Cork Business Association.
As a quarterly finalist, Phelans Pharmacy will be entered into the prestigious Cork Business Association ‘Business of the Year’ Awards, in its respective large and medium/small business category. The overall award winner will be announced at a Gala Awards Ceremony in The Clarion Hotel on Saturday 24 January 2015.
Speaking at the Q4 presentation, Lawrence Owens, CEO of Cork Business Association, said, “The Cork Business of the Year Awards identify, honour and acknowledge businesses who have contributed to or promoted the enhancement of the commercial, cultural or civic life in Cork City and I would like to sincerely congratulate Conor and Denise Phelan and all the staff at Phelans Pharmacy, Medical and Mobility Supplies across Cork for their continued efforts”.
Discussing why the late-night Pharmacy and Medical and Mobility suppliers in particular stood out over the past few months, James O’Sullivan, said “Phelans Pharmacy has been an integral part of the Cork community since its inception in 1988, and with the introduction of the late-night pharmacy concept to Cork in 1991, they have really been at the fore of their industry in the Cork-market, tending, it seems, to every customer’s needs. This has also been reflected in their mobility aids supply service which is both in-store and online. Although they are in the medium/small business category, let there be no doubt that they are a force to be reckoned with!”
