Mayo County Council has concluded pre-planning discussions with Tesco Ballina.

The long touted upgrading of the Tesco store in Ballina appears to have taken a significant step forward with confirmation that discussions between the supermarket chain and Mayo County Council with regard to an “extensive enhancement” of the store have reached a positive conclusion.
A statement issued by Tesco Ireland today (Friday) says that it will prepare to submit a planning application after both parties reached agreement on an overall scheme to revamp and extend the exterior of the store, and provide new car parking facilities.
The interior of the store will also receive a complete remodel, with new and upgraded facilities, which will enhance the in-store experience for colleagues and customers.
“We are pleased to have had successful discussions with Mayo County Council in relation to our store plans and look forward to moving to the next phase of submitting a planning application, as quickly as possible,” commented Geoff Byrne, Tesco Ireland’s Chief Operating Officer.
“Subject to permission, these significant store enhancements will vastly improve the appearance of, and experience in, our Ballina store for both our colleagues and our customers.
“Ballina is a key part of our overall store footprint in Co. Mayo and we are hopeful that the planning process can proceed as swiftly as possible.”
Tesco currently employs 471 people across its six stores in Ballina, Swinford, Claremorris, Castlebar, Westport and Ballinrobe.
