Musgrave Wholesale Partners today officially opened their new MarketPlace cash and carry outlet at a new site on Kilbarry Road, Co. Waterford in a E2 million investment.
This brings Musgrave's total investment in its MarketPlace network to E10 million to-date, with an additional E3 million to be invested in branch revamps over the next three years. The new 56,000 square foot outlet employs 70 staff, making it the largest cash and carry in the south-east of Ireland, with over 15,000 products in stock.
The state-of-the-art premises, which boasts an innovative, customer-friendly layout will also offer customers a new on-line ordering service, the first of its kind in Ireland, which will launch at the end of the month.
As part of Musgrave's investment in price reductions, on-going promotions in store will be supported by fresh meat deals, best in market pricing on fruit and veg as well as newly introduced Musgrave SmartBuy products.
"Our latest investment in the Marketplace network is a vote of confidence in Waterford, the brand, our team here on the ground, and our customers both locally and across the region. We now have a Marketplace cash & carry that really showcases our brand essence of 'first for value, first for choice and first for service'. Ensuring we offer our customers the best in value, the widest, most appropriate ranges and unparalleled customer service," said Musgrave MarketPlace Managing Director Noel Keeley.
Musgrave MarketPlace began trading in Waterford in 1998 with the purchase of Fanning's cash and carry which had originally opened in Keane's Road in 1978.
