A total of 55 jobs have been created at a new SuperValu store in Dundalk, Co. Louth, which opened this week.
The new 17,600 square foot SuperValu Fairways store, which represents a total investment of €7 million, is located in a new flagship retail development at the former Fairways Hotel Site in Dundalk. The Fairways development also includes a coffee shop, a pharmacy and residential units.
The store is owned by local businessman Richard Tiernan, who has developed a tailored offering for the Dundalk community, with a variety of locally-sourced products available at the new store, including SuperValu Food Academy producers such as Kookie Dough and Sing Li, which produces curry sauce and pastes. Some of the other locally-sourced products available at SuperValu Fairways include Moran Jams, Rafferty’s Fine Foods, Morgans Seafoods and McCloskey’s Bakery.
The SuperValu Fairways store features a sizable bakery, as well as butcher and fish counters, and parking for 150 customers. The new store also includes a comprehensive health and wellness section with over 1,600 products to reflect consumer demand for products like nuts, dry fruits, vitamins and supplements.
According to SuperValu Fairways store owner, Richard Tiernan, the new store’s “combination of fresh food leadership, value and a tailored service” makes it “the ideal destination in the run-up to Christmas, which will be our busiest trading period during the year”.
Martin Kelleher, managing director, SuperValu, added that the opening “demonstrates the strength of SuperValu’s independent community retail model, as local businessman Richard Tiernan invests in his local community with this new store”.
