Tesco Ireland has completed the €2.7 million expansion of its Swords Airside store, adding new services for customers in the North Dublin area.
The state-of-the-art store now boasts the F&F clothing range and a dedicated Tesco Mobile phone-shop. The expansion brings the Airside Retail Park store’s total footprint to over 28,000 square feet, with 229 free car parking spaces, a dedicated electric car charging point, and a Click & Collect service.
Geoff Byrne, chief operating officer at Tesco Ireland said: “We are delighted to have completed the expansion works on our Swords Airside store. Our customers in Swords and the surrounding North Dublin area have welcomed these new services and the store into its community, which opened just three years ago.
“We’re very thankful to our colleagues and customers for their patience and support as we all worked to respond to Covid-19, all the time reviewing operations to introduce measures to protect health and safety in line with public health advice. Customers can now enjoy new services like F&F and Tesco Mobile knowing that they can continue to shop these added services, safely.”
As part of Tesco’s food surplus distribution programme, in partnership with FoodCloud, the Airside store has donated over 6,500 meals to local causes such as Addiction Recovery Ireland, Aoibhneas Women and Children’s Refuge and Dublin Simon Community.
Swords Airside has donated over €20,000 through the Tesco Community Fund, most recently supporting causes to help highly vulnerable communities during Covid-19. Causes include Swords Meals on Wheels, Arc Cancer Support, Diabetes Ireland and Women’s Aid.
