Musgrave MarketPlace announces €2.5m investment
Musgrave MarketPlace has announced its plans to invest €2.5 million in an upgrade of their Robinhood store, located in Clondalkin as well as investing €1m in an upgrade of their Duncrue store in Belfast.
This news follows the relaunch of the Musgrave MarketPlace Ballymun store in November of last year.
Features include new speciality areas and state-of-the art technology to offer retail and foodservice customers an improved visitor experience.
The new revamped 73,000 square foot store employs 80 staff and will officially open in August 2017.
As part of the upgrade, four new roles will be created at the branch, aimed at providing customers with expert information and advice from trusted advisors. These new roles will be within the areas of fresh food, alcohol and equipment along with a new in-branch butcher to advise on specific cuts of meat for customers.
Hundreds of new products will join the existing array in the upgraded store as well as online access to the full range.
These products have been carefully selected based on extensive international and local trend research commissioned by Musgrave MarketPlace to ensure customers are provided with the most up to date range.
Furthermore, a state-of-the-art culinary theatre will be developed to showcase the Musgrave MarketPlace offerings for customers, including tailored classes to be hosted aimed at creating menu solutions for customers with a full-time onsite chef.
Speaking about the announcement, Managing Director of Musgrave Wholesale Partners, Noel Keeley said, “We are delighted to announce the upgrade to both the Robinhood and Duncrue stores following the hugely successful renovation of our Ballymun store. The business of food and drink is constantly evolving and as a business, we need to ensure that we continue to innovate and respond to growing trends that impact our customers’ needs.”
“This investment is testament to our commitment to providing cash and carry stores of the future. As well as providing our customers with the products they want, we will also be able to add value through our experts on hand in-store”, he added.
The revamped Musgrave MarketPlace Robinhood will officially open in August with the Belfast store opening in September 2017.
