Tesco Ireland opens new Newmarket Yards store

Posted on: 28 Jun 2024

Tesco Ireland has opened its 177th store at Newmarket Yards, Dublin 8. The store will offer customers a modern retail experience and a wide selection of quality fresh local and Irish produce. The store is located in the Newmarket Yards development, just off Cork Street near the Liberties.


Local suppliers Manning’s Bakery and Granby Ltd, famous for its Irish meats, are just some of the great local producers who will be found on the shelves in Newmarket Yards. The store has also been fitted with several energy-saving measures, including fridge doors, which will help reduce energy consumption.


Geoff Byrne, Chief Operating Officer, Tesco Ireland said: “We are delighted to open the doors on this new store in Newmarket Yards. This store is part of our ongoing investment in stores in urban centres across Dublin and the rest of the country. We always receive such a warm welcome from the communities in which we are based, and we are committed to ensuring that our new stores play a big part in these communities in the future”.


The new store was officially opened by the store manager who will lead a team of 13 colleagues. At the opening, Kyle Counihan, Store Manager, Newmarket Yards said: “This is a big moment for all the team. We are looking forward to welcoming our new customers, and we cannot wait to actively engage with the community. We are especially proud to meet our neighbours in St James CBS Primary school, who are participating in our Stronger Starts Schools programme, when they return in September. Through the Community Fund, we are pleased to be able to support local groups and projects over the coming months”.


Tesco is a proud supporter of the communities it serves. To date its Community Fund has helped support thousands of organisations across the country from GAA clubs to children’s charities. In its first campaign, the Newmarket Yards store will support the locality with donations to a number of local causes including St Benedict’s Youth Club, Shannon’s Hopeline and Liberties Running Club.


Through the food surplus redistribution programme, FoodCloud partners and OLIO Food Waste Heroes will be on hand to ensure no good food goes to waste. The Newmarket Yards team will also join Tesco’s continued efforts to support its charity partner, Children’s Health Foundation which supports all sick children in CHI at Crumlin, Connolly, Temple St, and Tallaght hospitals.
