Noel Keeley, managing director of Musgrave Wholesale Partners said; “The business of food and drink is constantly evolving and it’s important that we continue to innovate and respond to our customers’ needs.
"This significant investment will allow us to deliver the cash and carry of the future. As well as providing our customers with the products they want, we will also be able to add value through our experts on hand in-store.”
The revamped Musgrave MarketPlace Ballymun will officially open in October 2016 but will operate as normal throughout the upgrade.
