How to Enter


Checkout has updated the application process for the National Grocery Retail Awards, to make it easier for applicants. The same application process applies for both stores and retailers. Please consult the Terms & Conditions before entering. Before completing your application please take note of the following:

Getting Started

To commence the application process using the form below, please select ‘National Grocery Retail Awards 2024’, followed by the number of categories you wish to enter.

Store Entries

  • There is a fee of €120+VAT per store (please disregard the “free” price for each category on the form below – this is for system functionality purposes).
  • Every store is eligible to enter up to 5 categories.
  • The entry fee is to cover the cost of a mystery shopper visit to the store.
  • Stores that would like to receive a copy of their report can do so for an additional fee of €55+VAT. Applicants will receive this report by email following the awards ceremony.

IMPORTANT: If an individual or company is entering multiple stores, please fill out each store individually and contact [email protected] separately with a full list of stores entered so that we can invoice appropriately.

Group / Chain Entries

  • There is no fee to enter these awards, as a mystery shopper visit is not required.

Completing Your Submission

Once you have filled out basic information about your store, you will be redirected to the APPLICANT PORTAL, where you can fill in more information about each entry.

By submitting an awards application, the store agrees to be invoiced for the submission fee by our accounts department after the application is approved. Payment must be made within 30 days of receipt of the invoice. Failure to pay may result in the application being voided and the store being ineligible for the award.

Stores that qualify as a finalist for the awards are required to purchase at least one ticket to attend the awards ceremony event at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Dublin in November. The availability of additional tickets may be limited and is subject to our discretion and availability. Failure to purchase the required ticket may result in a store being disqualified from the awards. Any additional conditions or requirements related to ticket purchase and attendance will be communicated to the finalists in due course.

If you have any questions about the application process, contact [email protected].
