Opening date for new store on Bray’s Southern Cross Road revealed
SuperValu are to open a new supermarket on Bray’s Southern Cross Road in June of next year.
Confirmation will be welcomed by residents on the southern side of the town who have long been complaining of a lack of services in the area.
Work has commenced on the site which is located approximately half way along the road on the opposite side to Killruddery.
However, speculation will now mount about the future of its other store on Castle Street (above) on the opposite side of the town.
“I’m absolutely delighted that after many years of pushing to get services onto the Southern Cross, it has been confirmed to me that SuperValu are going to be the tenants of the new 2,493sqm supermarket,” Sinn Fein TD John Brady says .
“Site preparation commenced a number of weeks ago, however the contractor constructing the new store only moved on site this week. It is estimated that the SuperValu store will be completed by June next.
“Whilst it’s good news about SuperValu opening a new store on the Southern Cross, there are some concerns about the future status of the existing SuperValu store on Castle Street.
“I have been in contact with the Musgrave Group and I’m asking them to give a commitment to keep the current store in Little Bray open.”
