The supermarket group Musgrave is upgrading its Centra chain across Northern Ireland, unveiling the first of a series of new-look stores in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter.

Around 25 new jobs have been created in the £500,000 investment in Donegall Street.

Centra stores are owned and managed by independent retailers. The latest opening is the third outlet for Donagh McGoveran, who also runs Centras at Malone and Stranmillis in the city. His shops employ 75 people.

"The retail market has changed rapidly over the past few years and we've reinvigorated our offer to match consumers changing needs," Mr McGoveran explained.

Musgrave NI managing director Michael McCormack said that the company would be rolling out the new Cathedral Quarter concept to all of its 78 stores.
