Musgraves has announced that it has completed its new-look Centra store in Craigavon, Co Armagh, which recently opened in the town.
The new store will create up to 30 new jobs for the area after a £2.5 million investment from the group and the Greene family and is partnered by a Go Fuel forecourt.
Quality & Value
“The new Centra stores strive to provide customers with convenient shopping solutions, by combining high-quality products and exceptional value,” said Norman Bennett, Centra Customer Manager.
“Centra is committed to supporting independently owned stores to not only contribute to the local community, but also to enable shoppers to get the best of both worlds; traditional values of outstanding customer service and good quality, fresh foods, paired with competitive pricing.”
The new 2,900sq foot store matches the contemporary new design that is currently being rolled out across Centra stores province-wide.
Along with the usual range of fresh and local produce, the store will also include a Frank and Honest Coffee section, a Hot and Cold Deli and a Mex-a-go counter, which serves a section of burritos and other Mexican-style food.
It even includes Customer Wi-Fi and a café-style seating area for customers looking to “dine-in and take some time-out”.
Musgrave added that the new development ‘promises to cater for every type of customer’, from the local resident collecting the few essentials to the busy on-the-go consumer looking for a quick and easy fix.
The Greene Family
The Greene family are well known in the local community, having owned and operated convenience retail stores in Craigavon for 35 years. The family owns another Centra store, at the nearby Legahory shopping centre.
“We are proud to work with Musgrave, Centra and Go Fuel on what has been a highly significant development for the local area. This store has been developed with the ever-busy commuter in mind, providing a range of fresh food and convenience options, alongside an extensive grocery range,” said store owner Tom Greene.
“We have created an unbelievably high tech and high spec store of the highest standard, which we believe has greatly enhanced the area. We are proud to have created 30 local jobs and to give something back to the community that has supported us throughout the years.”
