Ardkeen Quality Food Store
Shopping at the Jephson family’s Ardkeen Stores is pretty much the best fun you can have in Irish retailing.
If that sounds oxymoronic – a supermarket where shopping is fun, and not just a bore? – then let’s examine the reason why it’s a treat to push a trolley around the store.
Firstly, the store itself is a delight: big, bright, yet intimate and welcoming.
And when you need something, or to ask a qustion, there is a staff member right there when you need them. Everytime.
The foods they sell in Ardkeen are the best foods you can buy. An enormous percentage of them are local foods, from local artisans, and as such they represent the highest quality foods in Ireland. Many supermarkets don’t actually care about that but, in Ardkeen, its their modus operandi: buy the best from the best.
And then there is this: Ardkeen is charming. It’s got charm. We don’t know how it’s got charm, but we do know that it has it, in abundance.
Ardkeen Stores is, therefore, a true super market: it’s a collective roof under which super foods are gathered together for the customers, and buying these foods is a super experience. Super. Market.
There is nowhere else like it, and it is a treasure of the South-East.
