92 More Jobs

 

Updated : Aug 24, 2009

Tesco said 92 jobs had been created by a promised expansion of one of its Belfast stores.

Last year the supermarket giant announced plans to create 350 jobs across Northern Ireland, a project which included developing its Knocknagoney branch into a Tesco Extra store.

Tesco said the south Belfast store had been extended by 50% from 52,000 to 78,000 sq feet net, making it the largest Tesco supermarket in Northern Ireland.

Director of Tesco in Northern Ireland, Gary Mills, said: "At a time when many other companies are downsizing or remaining static, we are actively investing in jobs and the local economy.

"Over the past six months, the development of three Extra stores in Northern Ireland at Carrickfergus, Newtownbreda and now Knocknagoney, has created around 275 new jobs at these stores.

"This consolidates our position as Northern Ireland's largest private employer of local people and brings our total employment number to around 9,500 people.

"In addition, we have invested more than £20 million in the local economy and secured hundreds of jobs in the construction industry creating these three Extra stores. "

The company said more than 1500 people applied for the new posts, as well as for temporary posts created to allow customers to be offered additional help as they become accustomed to the expanded store.

The non-food section at the store has doubled in size. New services include Tesco direct, self-serve phoneshop, digital help desk and an opticians, as well as an enhanced cafe.

Knocknagoney store manager Paul Gilvary said: "We are delighted that the construction work has been completed and the store is looking absolutely fantastic."
