EUROSPAR Lurgan has officially been reopened, revealing an all-new look store, bringing six new jobs to the local area, alongside a host of new products and services.
The works which have completed on the store have allowed the installation of a new hot food-to-go counter, Delish, which serves food for now – breakfast and lunch options to enjoy on the go throughout the day – alongside food for later – a range of take-home options for tonight’s tea made fresh in-store each day. Shoppers can also enjoy the truly indulgent range of the all-new Fresh Cream treats and additional bakes and pastries from the in-store bakery.
Alongside the new food to go, shoppers can also stock up for tonight’s tea thanks to an abundance of new fresh products that have arrived in-store, with 75% sourced from local farmers and suppliers such as McCormack Potato, grown just outside Moy, Sprott’s of Portadown, Pinkerton’s of Armagh, Simply Fruit in Craigavon and Gilfresh Produce in Armagh.
Ian Richardson, the store’s in-store butchery counter, also has an extended range of pre-pack and serve over options, freshly prepared each day.
Mark McCammond, Retail Director at Henderson Retail, which operates the store, commented: “EUROSPAR Lurgan is one of a number of our community supermarkets to complete a significant refurbishment this year, creating six new jobs for the local area.
“EUROSPAR offers shoppers an unprecedented level of value thanks to our continued investment in initiatives including Tesco Price Match plus our weekly Mega Deals, alongside 12 Deals of Christmas, the campaign that is currently running throughout our stores which sees significant price cuts on everyday essentials and many household brands each week.
“We are committed to bringing value to doorsteps of local communities, and engaging with groups, charities and organisations to support what matters to our shoppers.”
EUROSPAR Lurgan opened in 2014 and store manager Conor Finnegan and Community Representative, Beata Smyth have been committed to the local community ever since. In recent months, the store has undertaken litter picks where they cleaned up 23 bags of rubbish from their local area, donated to St. Vincent de Paul as part of their ongoing partnership and continued to support Cancer Fund for Children, EUROSPAR’s official charity partner in Northern Ireland, for which they have raised over £4,000 in the past two years.
Locally, the store has supported Sunnyside Football Club’s charity events, while the team has spent time at Craigavon Foodbank, where they handed over a donation of products to support the work they do in the local community. Lough Neagh Rescue held a community information day at the store, while fundraising to keep their service running for the local area and beyond.
Store Manager Conor Finnegan added: “It was fantastic to reopen to our neighbours who have all been loyal shoppers for the past nine years, while also supporting those causes close to our hearts.
“Our all-new look store brings even more for our local community, from fresh food options for tonight’s tea, to an extended range of products from local suppliers, plus our new Delish deli, Post Office and self-check-outs, which will allow our team more time to service the shop floor.”
EUROSPAR Lurgan is open 6am to 11pm, seven days a week.
