We opened our new agri & DIY superstore in Athenry on Saturday 27th April. The store was opened by special guest Micheál Donoghue Galway Senior Hurling manager and was attended by Board and representative committee members. The store is a purpose built new 20,000 sq. foot building situated at Ballydavid on the Monivea road, Athenry. It is a major investment for the co-op and demonstrates our commitment to support farmers in the area. The business has relocated from Cross Street which was no longer fit for purpose. All agri inputs are now available on one site including feed and fertiliser. With the addition of new silos there is now a facility to stock up to 12 types of bulk feed subject to demand. This is now complimented with the option of stocking bulk fertiliser which offers the farmer a saving when collected ex branch. We will also have a bulk spreading service.
In the shop the range of agri products has been enhanced and is displayed in a manner which makes it easier for the customer to shop. The agri range is complimented by a range of DIY and general hardware products. A large range of paint is offered in our trade centre which can cater for both the professional and amateur decorator with brands such as Colourtrend and Dulux. The store also has an extended range of pet care, DIY, garden, clothing & footwear.
We have a one-way drive through in our store for feed and general goods. This will enable us to load our customer’s vehicles under cover from the elements of weather. There is a drive through system and, ample free parking and a large yard to service all their customers.
We look forward to dealing with the people of Athenry and the surrounding area for years to come.
