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.
