Leading convenience retailer Centra unveiled its newly revamped Clogher store to the public on Saturday 23rd November after a significant £2 million refurbishment.  The investment brings a boost of 12 jobs to the locality and provides enhanced convenience to both local customers in Clogher and those travelling the main Belfast/Enniskillen route.

  Owned by local retailer John McDade, who also operates Centra Ballygawley, the store is the latest expansion to the Centra NI portfolio.  

Commenting on Centra’s continued expansion, Nigel Maxwell Sales Director Centra Northern Ireland said:

“At Centra, our focus is on redefining convenience – providing our shoppers with a healthier offering and innovative ranges, particularly in food-to go and our Frank and Honest coffee brand.  Centra Clogher is a great example of providing shoppers with what they want – fresh, nutritious, inspiring and delicious food that is quick, easy and offers value for money.  We wish John and his team every success.”

The bright and contemporary store combines high convenience with an expanded food-to-go offering, boasting a hot and cold deli, a Green Kitchen (Centra’s salad offering) and the introduction of Frank and Honest coffee.  An extended bakery and fruit and veg offering alongside a range of meal solutions and chilled products ensures all mealtimes are catered for.   In addition, the store now boasts a larger off-licence with increased product lines. 

For an enhanced shopping experience, Centra Clogher also features self-scan tills, a comfortable seating area and complimentary Wi-Fi to provide customers with a dedicated space to dine-in and take some time out.  Access to the state-of-the-art forecourt site was improved with the introduction of a dedicated entrance and exit while 40 car spaces and 6 lorry spaces allows for significant parking onsite. 

Speaking at the opening, owner John McDade said:

We are delighted with the new look and feel of our store and would like to thank our customers for their continued support during the refurbishment works.   Our location is ideal for those travelling the busy route between Belfast and Enniskillen and we look forward to welcoming customers instore and providing them with a one-stop shop for modern convenience.”

The major new development promises to cater for every type of customer; from local residents collecting their weekly essentials, to those travelling the busy Belfast Enniskillen route seeking healthy but convenient lunch and dinner alternatives.
