Expanded Eurospar creates 22 jobs in Lisburn

By Staff Reporter

A new Eurospar supermarket has opened in Lisburn with the creation of 22 jobs.

The former Spar shop was refurbished over eight months, with changes including 60% more floor space.

It includes a bakery, deli, carvery, self-serve chicken bar and an in-store butchery.

A post office has been added, as well as a gift shop and Maud's ice cream counter.

And there are 11 new parking spaces, bringing the total to 64 now.

As a result of the opening, retail and wholesale giant Henderson Group now operates 62 large-format Eurospar stores around the province.

Manager Paul O'Halloran said: "I've been working in retail for 29 years and know that maintaining a good customer offering is the key to success.

"I'm immensely proud to be opening what is undoubtedly a huge asset to the town and pleased the supermarket has so many nods to the local area.

"I'm also delighted to announce that we are the first Eurospar in the UK to offer 'the bakery' concept, where we will have 50 bakery products freshly baked every day by our professional in-store baker, Nathan O'Doherty. Nathan will be able to advise on breads and offer samples for our shoppers to try before making their purchases."

The bakery will also stock products from suppliers Country Kitchen and Yellow Door.
