Banjos & Bovril At The Ready!January 13, 2019
If there’s one thing Greystones is famous for, it’s the friendliness – and sexiness – of the people here.
And never moreso than in our groovy shops and 1,738 cafés.
From the chucklesome cherubs in the local post office to the happy-go-lucky train station master – always out on that platform, to wave you bye-bye –sure, we’re a town that clearly cares deeply about good service.
It could be said, of course, that even though every single shop in Greystones is jam-packed with friendly, helpful staff, some go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to making sure that the customer is happy.
And they’re the ones that we want to celebrate here.
Those staff members who will always greet you with a smile, and never steer you wrong.
The florist who throws in that extra rose. The butcher who slips you a surprise sausage. The supermarket manager who lets your mum ride around in the shopping trolley. The barista who makes sure to blow all the hipster beard hair out of your frappurapadingdongkachingo.
With Emma Fox and the gang at AIB Bank Greystones kindly on board again this year to help us spread the good word on Greystones rockin’ shops – and provide a €50 spending voucher in the winning shop for one lucky GG reader – all you have to do is vote for your favourite in the comments section below.
Look upon it as a pat on the back. And a great big tip.
And don’t forget to tell us why you reckon your fave is Greystones’ finest.
Remember, it’s all about the complete package. The well-stocked shop, the good prices, and the staff member who makes your day that little bit sunnier.
Staff members like the bould Katie Bradshaw at Insomnia, who won last year’s coveted crown. This year…? That’s up to you guys. As we said, just comment below who your personal Greystones favourite, and a line or two on why…
