CCPC approves Tesco Ireland's acquisition of Joyce’s Supermarkets in Galway
7 June 2022
Tesco Ireland has welcomed the decision by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) to approve its acquisition of the Joyce’s Supermarkets in Galway. Working with the Joyce family, Tesco will now move forward to complete the transaction and thereafter begin the process to rebrand and redesign the Joyce’s Supermarkets as Tesco stores on a phased basis. During this period we will be delighted to welcome employees from Joyce’s stores to the Tesco team.
A condition of the approval from the CCPC is that Tesco divests the Joyce’s supermarket in Oranmore. Tesco will comply with this condition ensuring employees are best supported during the transition.
“As we celebrate 25 years of Tesco in Ireland, the approval of this acquisition is an exciting opportunity to continue to grow our business for the future; bringing great value, quality and broad range of products and services to the customers and communities of Galway City and County,” Natasha Adams, CEO, Tesco Ireland.
