Two local supermarkets to be upgraded as part of €80million investment


TWO SUPERMARKET stores in Limerick will undergo a refurbishment and refit as part of a significant investment announced by a major retailer.

Tesco stores in Arthur’s Quay and Newcastle West will share part of an €80million investment to upgrade existing stores as well as open new outlets nationwide.

As part of the €80million investment, Tesco will open eight new Tesco Express stores, with one in Dublin opening later this month, marking the retailer’s 167th outlet in Ireland.

The company says that the investment underpins its commitment to brick and mortar stores in Ireland.

Tesco Ireland Chief Operating Officer, Geoff Byrne, says the strong pipeline of store openings and planned refurbishments spells good news for customers.

“We have an ambitious development strategy for the business and are very excited to be expanding our Tesco Express model. We remain as committed as ever to delivering a rewarding shopping experience for our customers, which offers real value,” he said.

“Our Tesco Express model is proving very successful in urban settings and reflects evolving consumer demand for greater convenient shopping opportunities in high footfall areas, while our store upgrades will breathe new life into our existing store network,” Mr Byrne added.

Currently, Tesco employs over 13,000 people in cities and towns around Ireland, supporting almost 45,000 jobs directly and indirectly, since setting up in Ireland in 1997.
