We are very fortunate in Croom to still have a great retail heartland in Croom
Yes in Croom people are always friendly they don't just wait till Christmas to have a cheery hello. We are fortunate to have great local businesses offering employment locally. Croom's retail businesses put in that extra effort. Carrigeen Stores with a great array of seasonal confectionery including my favourites; marshmallow Kebabs!! The toy store at Carriggen allows us to shop for toys and games at ease.
Brodericks SPAR is just fabulous well done to all - what an investment in the town, and such a great array of items including the speciality "free from" ranges including a vast array of gluten-free products. Broderick's SPAR has all the seasonal sparkle for any special dinner or party over the Holidays, YES to the wine with bubbles please!
The Hearing Ear, first among Crooms stores to have a festive window - a great welcome to Helen Shinnors customers who come from across Munster to receive treatment here in Croom. Thanks for getting us in the festive mood!
Speaking of festive windows, what an array of potential gifts on Plunkett's windows, from lovely giftware to spicy scents Plunketts have a gift for everyone. They have served everyone through the busy period and offered vaccines at the same time. Well done to Eibhlis, Tom and the team.
Pat Barry Butchers' has everything that the Christmas season needs: good food and prime cuts of meat from the best the countryside has to offer. Barrys' has, yes, the turkey but lots to offer for the days between Christmas and New Year, steaks, flavoured sausages or a fantastic roasting joint.
Thanks to all the retail teams across Croom - for keeping us safe, serving the community and allowing us to shop local in Croom - thanks for the cheery service throughout the year.
