Fifty new jobs have been created by the opening of a new super-store in Finaghy in South Belfast.

The 6,000 sq. ft. Eurospar ‘Creighton’s of Balmoral’ is situated on the Upper Lisburn Road.

Owners, Niall Creighton and Gail Boyd, operate two other shops in the area.

The family have been operating since the 1930s, already employing over 100 members of staff.

Niall Creighton said: “We are delighted to open Eurospar Creightons of Balmoral, which brings not only a wealth of new services and convenience to the area, but also employment opportunities for our local community; in opening the store we created 50 new full and part time roles from customer service to deli staff.

“We have a wealth of experience in retail having traded for over 80 years in Northern Ireland and our links with the Henderson Group only make us a stronger business.”

The new store will have a Barista coffee service, a new deli and hot food-to-go facilities have also been installed.
