Henderson Retail has officially opened its £3m, state-of-the-art EUROSPAR community supermarket on Moss Road, Millisle, bringing 25 new jobs to the local area.

The build, which began pre-lockdown and lasted eight months, replaces the original SPAR store on Main Street, retaining its 15 employees.

Henderson’s Retail Director Mark McCammond says the store is an investment in the local community.

“We have retained the 15-strong team from the original store, brought 25 new job opportunities for the area, and shoppers will benefit from EUROSPAR’s extensive range of locally sourced fresh foods. The new supermarket will feature 1000’s of additional lines when compared to the former store, an enhanced value proposition, plus Tesco price match on over 1000 lines and a  MAXOL service station, the first in the town for over 15 years.

“This is the third store operated by Henderson Retail to open in the past couple of months after SPAR Carnmoney Hill and the reopening of EUROSPAR Glenwell. We’ll continue to invest in our local communities to bring a safe way of shopping, alongside value and top-quality services and amenities.”
