Musgrave MarketPlace invests €700,000 in newly refurbished Sallynoggin Outlet in Dublin

  • Musgrave MarketPlace invests close to €11 million in branch network in under five years
  • Further €5 million to be invested in network in next three years

Musgrave Wholesale Partners today officially opened their newly refurbished Musgrave MarketPlace cash & carry outlet in Sallynoggin, South County Dublin. Musgrave have invested €700,000 in the refurbishment which brings the total invested in their MarketPlace network to nearly €11 million in the last five years. A further €5 million will be invested in the network over the next three years.

The newly refitted 42,000 square foot store employs 40 staff. With an innovative customer service layout, the store stocks 12,000 products and boasts an expanded food service range including a new chill freeze section carrying over 800 food products. Customers can purchase Musgrave MarketPlace’s 100% Irish fresh meat range as part of the exclusive Butchers Select and Simply Meat offering as well as an expanded fresh fruit & veg range sourced and priced daily.

Customers can also shop the largest range of own brand products in wholesale with the Musgrave Professional range of over 200 non-food products and the Musgrave Excellence range of 200 high quality ambient, chilled & frozen products which are taste tested and endorsed by an independent panel of chefs and deliver a saving of 15% versus the brand leader.

The upgraded store will offer customers even greater convenience with a daily 8am start as well as quality of service with ‘click and collect’ or direct delivery for online customers. Customers can also keep abreast of the latest offers and notifications when they sign up for Twitter and SMS updates.

Paul Kerrigan, Director Musgrave MarketPlace ROI, said; “The official opening of the newly refitted Musgrave MarketPlace Sallynoggin cash & carry is an important milestone for both the branch and Musgrave MarketPlace as a national brand. We have worked with the local community, supporting local businesses in South Dublin and surrounding environs for over 20 years and are very proud of our improved and expanded offering.”

“The improvements to our branch network are a very important part of delivering on our commitment to customers in providing unrivalled quality and value. We are continually investing in our branch network to deliver on our brand promise of ‘first for value, first for choice and first for service’.”

Commenting at the opening, Sallynoggin General Manager, Owen McFeely, said: “We are delighted to officially reopen our Sallynoggin branch with great new ranges and an extended chill/ freeze offering for our customers. We have a long and proud tradition of supplying retail, foodservice and SME businesses in South County Dublin and along the east coast and are looking forward to building on this commitment in to the future”.

The cash & carry began trading in Sallynoggin, Co Dublin in 1972 as Lees Cash & Carry before being purchased by Musgrave in 1992 and trading as Musgrave MarketPlace.

Making a good impression

We feel our commitment to the Irish economy should be hands-on as well as market-driven. That’s why Musgrave is part of a collaborative project between government and industry (you can read more about this at http://www.ecrireland.ie/). The aim of this project – called Feeding Ireland’s Future – is to tackle unemployment. And as part of our role in this project we’ve been running career development sessions this week for 500 unemployed young people.

We’ve got a lot of knowledge in this company about the nuts and bolts of career development – stuff like preparing CVs, drafting applications, and preparing for interviews. We’ve also got people who understand how careers work in the modern world – the role of social media in particular. It’s great that we can share all this knowledge. And as a company with a lot of experience in an area for which Ireland is justly admired – food production, preparation and supply – we also think it’s entirely appropriate to offer our guests a site tour which can give them an overview of what a career in the food and grocery industry entails. After all, one of them could be our MD by 2030, so it helps to make a good impression!

Musgrave helping 500 young people into work as part of ‘Feeding Ireland’s Future’

Musgrave Group is running career development sessions this week for 500 unemployed young people as part of ‘Feeding Ireland’s Future’, an initiative by the Department of Social Protection with Intreo, ECR Ireland and a number of companies from the Irish food and grocery sectors. Over 2,000 young people will participate in ‘Feeding Ireland’s Future’ during 3rd to 7th March, with 25% of participants attending a workshop at a Musgrave site.

Musgrave is helping to tackle youth unemployment as part of a collaborative project between Government and industry. Each training session will be facilitated by the Musgrave HR Team and participants will cover how to manage their social media reputation; preparing their CVs; how to draft cover letters and applications; interview role plays; and a site tour to give them an overview of what a career in the food and grocery industry entails.

Commenting on the initiative, Chris Martin, Musgrave Group CEO, said: “As one of the biggest employers in Ireland, we believe we have a key role in helping young people start their careers. The Irish food industry is world renowned and we hope to give participants an insight into the opportunities available, as well as the practical experience to help them secure jobs. They will all have the opportunity to engage with our colleagues and learn about the many career opportunities and ways of entering the working world. Some will also have the opportunity to engage with some of our SuperValu partners, who will talk about what a career in retail entails and the exciting opportunities within the industry.”
