Value Centre Ennis is strategically very important to our nationwide network, servicing a large and continually growing base of highly valued customers across the region, so we’ve been very focussed on enhancing the operation in a way that would allow us to upgrade our offering to customers. I’m glad to say we’ve achieved that ambition through this redevelopment.”
