SuperValu has created 70 new jobs as part of a €12 million investment in a new 15,200 square feet store in Dunboyne, Co Meath.
Nally’s Dunboyne store will anchor an overall 25,000 square feet new town centre development which incorporates four adjacent units, office accommodation and Frank and Honest cafe, Ireland’s number one gourmet coffee brand.
SuperValu Dunboyne is operated by local entrepreneurs Steven and Michael Nally of the Nally Group, who also own and run SuperValu stores in Trim and Celbridge.
“Having grown up in the area, we are delighted to open this state-of-the-art store to serve the local community. It is a huge vote of confidence in the local economy and it is a proud moment to create 70 new jobs in Dunboyne,” Steven Nally said.
“We are confident that our store, range and team will make a real difference to the people of Dunboyne and its surrounding areas.”
The store store includes a scratch bakery; deli counter offering a large salad and cold meat selection; rotisserie, fish and butcher counter with fully qualified butchers to share their top tips and advice on choosing the best cuts for any dish.
It also features a vegetarian and vegan dedicated zone, as well as providing a health and wellness section, to tailer for consumer’s evolving habits.
“The opening of the new store in Dunboyne is part of an ambitious expansion programme, which will see SuperValu expand our network this year with three new stores and 30 revamps,” Martin Kelleher, SuperValu Managing Director, added.
“Steven and Michael Nally are an entrepreneurial family who have built a network now of five SuperValu stores (Celbridge, Kilcock, Maynooth, Trim and Dunboyne), highlighting what can be achieved when an Irish SME goes up against international competitors thanks to a tailored local service and a focus on buying local.”
