Work has begun at Kernans Lower Main Street this week as a full store revamp gets underway. The store is going through some major changes at the moment and is undergoing a significant transformation to improve its offering to include a new fresh food concept and a new Spar Deli offering. The store will still boast a core grocery range and a strong off-licence to compliment the new features and work should be complete by the end of the month.

Regarding the decision to revamp, Mary Black, Manager of the store, says it was simply time to make some changes to moderanise. “We are delighted to be relaunching this store and introducing lots of new fresh food concepts,” said Mary. “We feel there was a gap in the market for a really strong, fresh food and coffee offering. I’d like to thank my loyal customers for their patience while the building works are ongoing and I can't wait for them to experience the new store once complete.”

The new Spar concept combines a unique range of fixtures and fittings with an expertly selected array of products and imagery that will make it one of the most innovative stores in the convenience sector in Donegal.
"Everything in the store is being changed and modernized , from the till counter, to the store lighting, the shelving, all the fresh foods displays and our Deli counter. The entire store is getting a make over", said Damian Daly the Managing Director of the Kernan Group .
It is a new era for this popular corner store at Lower Main Street Letterkenny (formally known as Blacks, Cassidy's, Proctor's, Coyle's), as the Kernan Group took the reigns of the retail outlet last year.
Anthony Kernan the proprietor of the Kernan Group has revealed that this is only the first of three more store Revamps to come to the Kernan's chain of retail outlets in the coming months.
