SUPERVALU HAVE SAID they hope to create around 300 jobs this year as part of a €20 million investment programme.

The jobs will be created following the opening of three new stores and the extension and refurbishment of a further 40. More than half of the positions will be in Celbridge, Co. Kildare and Milltown Malbay, Co. Clare with the opening of two greenfield sites.

The Irish supermarket also announced that the brand recorded retail sales of €2.1 billion last year.

“This was achieved by delivering value to shoppers through price reductions, promotions and our extensive SuperValu own brand range,” said Martin Kelleher, Managing Director of SuperValu.

With 195 stores nationwide, SuperValu currently employs 12,000 people, including 450 butchers and over 200 bakers. It has an annual payroll of over€213 million.
