Our story: Back in 1998, a Group of Irish wholesalers had the vision to develop a new style of convenience retailing, that positioned Irish communities at the heart of its operations. Gala was born and today, Gala’s values remain constant: Irishness, community and excellence in retailing.

With Gala stores owned locally, supported by the strength and expertise of local wholesalers and Gala HQ, Gala retailers tailor their stores to meet the needs of their local community, and it’s proving to be winning formula.

The Gala brand symbolises modern, innovative and fresh community retailing. No two Gala stores are the same, and it’s this unique quality that’s continually attracting innovative retailers to join the Gala Group… Gala is growing!
