A convenience store in Co Fermanagh has reopened with the creation of 15 jobs after a £2m revamp.

The Centra in Enniskillen was demolished and rebuilt by its owners, who acquired it in 2016.

The investment was supported by Ulster Bank.

The forecourt of the store, on a main road outside the town, was also refurbished by the Lilley family.

The store is supported by Musgrave, owner of the Centra, SuperValu, Mace and MarketPlace brands.

The Lilley family, led by director Una Lilley, has worked in retail for three decades and also owns a store at Drumlyon.

Leona McNicholl of Ulster Bank said: "The Lilley family are longstanding and respected retailers in the Enniskillen area, having operated at their Drumlyon site for over 30 years.

"After taking ownership of the Dublin Road store in 2016, Una quickly revitalised its offering and services and doubled its sales by addressing shortcomings and anticipating consumers' needs.

"Ulster Bank was pleased to finance its purchase and redevelopment, and to support the execution of Una's vision for the store."

The store now has extended chilled and fresh food, and has extended its off-licence.

It has a wider food-to-go section, including Musgrave's Frank and Honest coffee brand, and its 'green kitchen' salad bar concept.

Una said: "We're delighted to reopen our new store and forecourt to the local community and commuters.

"Within the store we've introduced a number of new convenience concepts and brands to enhance the customer experience.

"Throughout the redevelopment we were committed to integrating the everyday consumer necessities with an extensive range of additional services, quality produce and exceptional food-to-go ranges, all housed within comfortable and stylish surroundings."

Earlier this week Musgrave announced the reopening of its Mace store on Belfast's High Street after a £90,000 investment.
