Killeen Hardware has been trading for over 37 years in the local Armagh area and is at the heart of the community.
It is for this reason that it is delighted to sponsor Armagh I’s Good Neighbour Award.
The award recognises people who dedicate their time to helping and supporting their neighbours and who are a positive role model to others.
Directors of Killeen Hardware David and Philip Hughes said that over the years the company has become “embedded” in the local Armagh community, serving customers and building business relationships with local tradesmen, other small businesses, farmers and everyday customers.
“We often see people having long conversations with friends and people they haven’t seen in a while, especially on a Saturday morning when people are getting their jobs done at the weekend. It’s a great thing to see,” they said.
“The management and staff recognise that Killeen Hardware is a place where people come and get their supplies and can have a bit of craic with the staff and other customers.
“We are very pleased to be able to sponsor the Good Neighbour award. This community of ours is full of generous, kind and considerate people. It’s part of who we are as people of Armagh.
“This is a great opportunity to recognise those people who have really gone above and beyond to help someone else out in a time where life has been challenging for us all.”
