Limerick Tidy Towns Monthly Award Winner for May 2015 is Compu b on O’Connell Street



Tidy Towns MayThe Limerick Tidy Towns monthly award for May has gone to the Compu b store at 121 O’Connell Street, for its enormously positive impact on the retail heart of Limerick city centre. Pictured being presented with the award at the premises by Maura O’Neill of Limerick Tidy Towns is Store Manager Mark Power and Assistant Manager Aisling Orr.

Maura says “Anyone who knows Limerick city centre will be aware of how welcome Compu b were when they took over the former Kiely’s Electrical building on O’Connell Street, which had lain empty for many years and was an unsightly scar in the streetscape of a very prominent location in the business and retail centre of Limerick. Since Compu b moved there in September 2014, the site has been transformed into a modern state of the art retail unit, which is hugely beneficial not just to the aesthetic appearance of O’Connell Street which is very important from our perspective, but also to its impact on enticing increased footfall to the city centre”.

Items sold include MacBook, Macbook Pro & MacBook Air, desktops iMac, Mac Mini, Apple TV, iPods, docking stations, external hard-drives and the widest range of accessories for laptops, desktops, cars, iPhone and iPod.

An overall winner will also be chosen at the end of the year and if members of the public wish to suggest future monthly winners which they feel merit the award, please do let the Tidy Towns team know.

Limerick Tidy Towns also recently presented the prize for their overall winner for 2014 at a special event at the Savoy Hotel last month, and this went to C O’Neill Fruit & Veg, who were extremely popular winners and well deserving of the recognition of their hard work.
