Galwegians can now shop eco-friendly and sustainable products in-store, from reusable bottles and kitchenware to toiletries and homewares. Pat Kane owner of reuzi has curated the products with Joyce’s customers in mind.
The partnership marks a significant development for both companies and is the first time that reuzi has partnered with a supermarket chain.
Aisling Joyce says: “Over the past couple of years, the environment has come to the forefront of our minds and we have wanted to bring more eco-friendly and sustainable choices to our customers. Partnering with reuzi has allowed us to stock over 100 new sustainable products and also tap into the fantastic knowledge of Pat Kane and her team, learning more about what contribution we can make to the environmental cause but also using our platform to help educate the community in which we operate. We are just starting on our journey but are excited to see what difference we can all make.”
Pat Kane, owner of reuzi says: “At reuzi, we believe sustainable living should be straightforward and accessible and our friends at Joyce’s agreed with us.

Patrick C Joyce started the family business in Headford in 1951 with a small grocery store and followed this with a travelling shop. This then developed into a general supermarket and building materials provider on the site of the current Headford supermarket. After Pat Joyce took over the family business the building materials side of the business moved to the Galway Road, a few kilometres outside Headford and the supermarket was expanded. Since then 9 more supermarkets have been opened in Knocknacarra, Athenry, Tuam, Inverin, Ballybane, Fr. Griffin Road, Doughiska, Oranmore and Oughterard.
