The Value Centre cash and carry network will see an investment of €7 million over the next two years, according to an announcement made by operators BWG Foods at the re-opening of its refurbished Castlebar centre.
The centre was extensively damaged because of a fire last year and was officially re-opened by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny yesterday morning. All 14 employees have returned to work after the €2 million refurbishment.
At the re-opening, An Taoiseach said: “It is a great note of confidence by the company in its locations across the country that it is embarking on such significant investment programme”.
BWG Foods, who own the Value Centre network, has said that it plans to also upgrade and refurbish the Letterkenny, Sligo and Dundalk branches.
Leo Crawford, Group Chief Executive, BWG Group said: “Despite the challenging economic conditions, we are committed to upgrading and expanding Value Centre premises in our network.
"We believe sustained investment is important because it helps achieve greater efficiencies for the business, which in turn delivers an enhanced service to customers, and has a positive knock-on effect for the local areas in which we operate.”
