AROUND 400 new jobs are to be created at Centra this year, as the convenience store confirms an expansion of its network.

The company is to add around 20 stores around the country this year — bringing the total to 485.

The news was announced by Managing Director Martin Kelleher at the brand’s National Retailer Conference in Killarney yesterday.

Retail sales at Centra were up 3.5 per cent last year, totalling €1.48 billion. Kelleher said the increase had been driven by their own brand range “in addition to new store openings and refurbishments”.
