The Pat Curran Award for Excellence in Customer Service goes to Angie Myles, Golden Health Store in Longford
In Summer 2018, Eskimo-3 in collaboration with Rude Health Magazine, the official magazine of the Irish association of Health Stores, launched The Pat Curran Award for Excellence in Customer Service. We asked customers and readers to nominate an exceptional person working in an Independent Irish Health Store. The results were overwhelming with nominations coming from every corner of the country. The award is presented in memory of one of the founders of PPC Ltd – Pat Curran. Pat was affectionately known as ”The Eskimo Man” for his work in building the brand Eskimo-3 fish oil to become the leading Omega-3 product in Ireland. Pat often quoted the old adage, ”if you enjoy what you do you’ll never work a day in your life”. The objective of this worthwhile award was to celebrate excellence in independent health food shops throughout Ireland.
Congratulations to Angie Myles from The Golden Health Store in Longford, who is this year’s winner of The Pat Curran Award. PPC Ltd and Eskimo-3 presented Angie with The Pat Curran award, a €500 cash prize and a charitable donation of €500, which Golden Health Store donated to the charity CASA “Caring and Sharing Association” in Longford. CASA does amazing, unsung work in our county, country and all over the world.
As a Nutritional Therapist, Angie – originally from County Leitrim – has been helping people make better lifestyle choices for nearly 20 years. “I find working in Golden Health a very rewarding experience because of our customers! No two days are the same. I have met and helped some really special people along the way. Health stores are remarkable places – we are a true listening ear, helping hand and health emporium” Angie said. “I am very grateful for this award and acknowledgement of the work that I do on a daily basis. I would like to thank Eskimo 3 (PPC) for the award and to all our customers who took the time to vote. PPC is a family business based in Galway, whom we have worked with since opening our doors in 2006. It’s fantastic to have their support in the industry and the opportunity to gain recognition for excellent customer service in health stores. We had the pleasure of working with Pat over the years and he always exceeded expectations in customer service. It’s great to see Pat’s daughter Olive leading the way for a new generation of health conscious people.” Angie commented.
Angie received wonderful commendations in her nomination comments such as: “All staff especially Angie are consistently friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about their products, they give excellent advice and some days I just go in for the warmth and care they show! Angie can be relied on for sound advice on the great variety of products in this great shop! Love it!”
Olive Curran, Marketing Director PPC Ltd says ”Angie is an exceptional lady who is clearly truly passionate about customer service and the natural health industry. Her customers and colleagues speak highly of her and Eskimo-3 are thrilled to present Angie with the Pat Curran Award for excellence in customer service.”
