TC Autos, the Omagh-based car retailer, has put forward a £2.5 million plan to redevelop part of its car dealership into a supermarket and fuel forecourt.
Established in 1971 by Claude Maguire, the family-owned business has said it will continue to operate in the motor trade. However, if granted planning approval, part of its Killyclogher Road site will become a new retail hub within the next two years, in a proposal which could potentially create approximately 60 jobs.
The Irish News reports that the £2.5m investment involves the development of a convenience store, road services area, electric vehicle charging park and fuel forecourt.
TC Autos will alsp invest £150,000 to upgrade its Kia franchise and create a new used car forecourt to the Cookstown side of the site.
“This most recent undertaking is in direct response to the evolving needs of [our] community, but also to meet the needs of thousands of daily passing travellers on what is now an extremely busy thoroughfare,” said company director Edward Maguire.
“Our existing motor trade operation continues to perform well despite difficult market conditions and this new development will only serve to complement and support our core motor trade business.”
