Tesco Ireland works with 33 new suppliers in nine Galway stores.
Tesco Headford, the ninth Tesco store to open in County Galway in recent months, has officially opened for business. The new store, which is more than 27,000 square feet, promises customers a modern retail experience with access to a huge variety of quality fresh local and Irish produce.
More than 33 suppliers from the west of Ireland are now benefiting from product listings in these nine new Tesco stores in Galway. Divilly’s Meats, Butler’s Bread, Galway Potatoes, and West Ireland Art are among the 29 Galway and west of Ireland suppliers whose products will be available in Headford. Following a dedicated supplier development program in recent months, local suppliers have been assisted in understanding the Tesco business, gaining insight into customer behavior, and ensuring that Galway shoppers continue to have access to the products they know and love.
“We’re thrilled to open the doors of our new Headford store,” said Joe Manning, Commercial Director at Tesco Ireland. Customers can expect a wide selection of quality fresh Irish food and drink, as well as wonderful produce from 33 local suppliers, who will be featured on the shelves of our Galway stores. We are very impressed with the quality of produce grown and manufactured in Galway, and we are proud to support local producers.”
Stephen Corrigan, an experienced store manager, officially opened the new location. “We’ve been working really hard to ensure that our new store exceeds the expectations of the community here in Headford,” said Stephen, who lives in nearby Belclare. We can’t wait to see our customers again, and we look forward to interacting with them in the coming months and years.”
The supermarket stocks the popular F&F clothing line, which has a great selection of seasonal clothing for both adults and children. Customers will be able to access superb value from their shopping through Clubcard Prices, with exclusive deals on everything from everyday staples to treats, while also being rewarded with Clubcard points.
Customers can shop Aldi Price Match for hundreds of products that are price matched against Aldi, including great-value ingredients for four-person meals. Low Everyday Prices are available on everyday essentials to assist families with pantry staples and household basics, providing customers with added value where it is most needed. And now, with the Low Everyday Prices price-lock commitment, Tesco is giving shoppers more ways to spend less and enjoy the fast-approaching festive season by freezing the prices on hundreds of everyday products until 2023.
Tesco is an active member of the communities in which it operates. To date, its Community Fund has assisted thousands of organizations throughout the country. In its first campaign, the Headford store will give to three local charities: Solas Family Resource Centre, Pieta House Galway, and Cro the West of Ireland Cardiac Foundation.
FoodCloud partners and OLIO Food Waste Heroes will be on hand to ensure that no good food goes to waste through the food surplus redistribution program. The Headford team will also support Tesco’s charity partner, Children’s Health Foundation, which helps all sick children at Crumlin, Connolly, Temple St, and Tallaght hospitals.
