Musgrave MarketPlace has officially unveiled its newly revamped Cork branch to customers. The €2.5 million upgrade of the Ballycurreen-based branch forms part of a €10m investment to date in the Musgrave MarketPlace brand over the last three years as it continues to redefine wholesale on the island of Ireland.
As part of this €10m investment, state-of-the-art food emporiums have been created in Musgrave MarketPlace branches, designed to provide customers with a first-class experience alongside unrivalled value, broad product range and food expertise. Newly upgraded branches include Ballymun, Robinhood, Belfast and Cork with further refurbishments planned for later this year. All upgraded branches have been designed to save energy and reduce carbon emissions too.
Musgrave MarketPlace Cork’s expanded product range also includes more eco-friendly options for customers in response to the growing awareness around the need to reduce the use of plastics by businesses. The new range features products made from renewable materials including palm leaf, sugar cane and Polylactic acid and includes paper and compostable straws, plates, cutlery and napkins, as well as 100% plant based cleaning products.
Musgrave MarketPlace Cork will also join forces with social enterprise company FoodCloud to eliminate food waste by sending surplus food to local Cork charities.
The newly revamped Musgrave MarketPlace Cork includes a bespoke butchery service, a coffee concession, a food theatre with product demonstrations, in-branch expert advice, an upgraded ‘Click and Collect’ providing online order services, a new express till, nationwide delivery, and a colour blocking system to simplify store navigation.
