You’ll all have heard the news by now about Superquinn being bought out by the Musgrave group, owners of Super Valu and Centra.
On the positive side, it’s very good to hear that they have pledged to keep all 2,800 Superquinn employees in jobs. On the downside, it could mean reduced competition in the Irish supermarket arena and the possible disappearance of a well-loved brand. There’s also the impact it could have on Irish producers, although Super Valu have a good reputation when it comes to stocking and supporting Irish producers.
What do you think? Will you miss Superquinn if each store becomes a Super Valu?
