SuperValu Knocklyon have released an apology to panto queen Twink, following reports her pet parrot was banned from their store.

Earlier this month, the 69-year-old turned heads in SuperValu in Knocklyon – as she was spotted shopping with her beloved cockatoo, Timberlake, on her shoulder.

The Irish Sun later reported that Twink, aka Adele King, was no longer allowed bring her parrot into the shop.

The shop’s manager Owen Doyle said: “Aside from guide dogs, there are no animals allowed in this store and we are definitely not making an exception for Twink.”

“At the end of the day, this is a fresh food and fruit market. It’s not a place we encourage anybody to bring pets into — that includes parrots, as well as cats. There are no animals of any descriptions allowed in aside from guide dogs.”

SuperValu Knocklyon have since apologised to Twink, who they described as a “long standing and much loved customer”.

In a statement, they said: “SuperValu Knocklyon would like to apologise for any confusion regarding a cherished customer at our store, Adele King.”

“We wish to make clear that Ms King continues to be welcome at our store and that yesterday’s news coverage in relation to her pet cockatiel came about due to the store manager responding to a query to clarify our policy in relation to letting animals in-store.”

“The intention was not to cause any embarrassment to Ms King, who is a long standing and much loved customer by the Knocklyon staff, we apologise for any offence caused,” they added.
