Tesco Ireland supports 33 new suppliers across nine Galway stores
18 November 2022
Tesco Headford has officially opened for business and is the ninth Tesco store to launch across County Galway in recent months. At more than 27,000 square foot the new store promises customers a modern retail experience with access to a huge variety of quality fresh local and Irish produce.
More than 33 west of Ireland suppliers are now benefitting from product listings in these nine new Tesco stores in Galway. Local suppliers Divilly’s Meats, Butler’s Bread, Galway Potatoes and West Ireland Art are among 29 Galway and west of Ireland suppliers who will feature on the shelves in Headford. Following a dedicated supplier development programme in recent months, local suppliers have been supported to understand the Tesco business, gain insight into customer behaviour, and continue to ensure that Galway shoppers have access to the products they know and love.
Joe Manning, Commercial Director, Tesco Ireland said: “We’re thrilled to open the doors of our new Headford store. Customers can expect to find a wide variety of quality fresh Irish food and drink as well as wonderful produce from 33 local suppliers, who will feature on the shelves across our Galway stores. We are very impressed by the quality of the produce that is grown and made here in Galway, and we are proud to support local producers.”
The new store was officially opened by experienced store manager, Stephen Corrigan. Stephen who is based in nearby Belclare said: “We’ve been working really hard to ensure that our new store exceeds the expectations of the community here in Headford. We can’t wait to welcome our customers back, and we really look forward to engaging with them in the months and years ahead.”
The supermarket features the customer favourite F&F clothing range which has a fantastic selection of adults and children’s seasonal clothing. Through Clubcard Prices, customers will be able to access superb value from their shopping, with exclusive deals on everything from everyday staples to treats, while also being rewarded with Clubcard points.
Through Aldi Price Match, customers can shop 100s of products price matched against Aldi, including great-value ingredients for meals for four. Low Everyday Prices are available on everyday essentials to help families with the cupboard staples and household basics, giving customers added value where they need it most. And now with the Low Everyday Prices price-lock commitment, freezing the prices on hundreds of everyday products until 2023, Tesco is giving shoppers more ways to spend less and enjoy the fast-approaching festive season.
Tesco is a proud supporter of the communities it serves. To date its Community Fund has helped support thousands of organisations across the country. In its first campaign the Headford store will support the locality with donations to three local causes, Solas Family Resource Centre, Pieta House Galway, and Croí the West of Ireland Cardiac Foundation.
Through the food surplus redistribution programme, FoodCloud partners and OLIO Food Waste Heroes will be on hand to ensure no good food goes to waste. The Headford team will also join Tesco’s continued efforts to support its charity partner, Children’s Health Foundation which supports all sick children in CHI at Crumlin, Connolly, Temple St, and Tallaght hospitals.
