Castlebar shoppers will be eager to catch a glimpse of how a familiar old supermarket that has been a staple of the town for 31 years has transformed itself into a state-of-the-art store right in the middle of the town.
Kavanagh’s SuperValu is today (Thursday) launching its new look, following a significant investment of approximately €1million.
The Kavanagh’s team has gone to extensive lengths to be as environmentally conscious as possible with the new store’s innovative design. It comes equipped with eco-friendly LED lighting throughout as well as closed refrigeration units which will reduce energy consumption across the premises.
Kavanagh’s Castlebar employs more than 80 people and is set to offer a range of top-quality produce across a new premium meat counter, fishmonger and bakery. The store will also have an enhanced fresh food offering with a new focus on artisan and vegan departments and customers will have an extensive choice of plant-based meal solutions with the Full Happy Pear Range being stocked in-store.
They also stock 100% compostable SuperValu bags for life, fruit and veg bags and Frank & Honest coffee cups.
“We are thrilled to unveil our fabulous new store in Castlebar,” remarks Kavanagh Group Managing Director, Noel Kavanagh Jr. “Significant investment has delivered our brand-new state-of-the-art SuperValu concept for the local community to enjoy.
“We are so grateful to all our loyal customers who have supported us in Castlebar since 1990. We are proud to have supported many clubs and associations in the local community for the last 30 years and we plan to continue this support into the future.”
The store is working towards making Castlebar an autism-friendly town, with store manager John Page currently serving as chairman of the Castlebar Autism Friendly Town Committee. Additionally, this year marks 30 years of SuperValu’s sponsorship of the TidyTowns competition.
