The head of convenience retailer and wholesaler Musgrave NI has said an increase in some stores' sales has not made up for a fall in other parts of the business since the start of lockdown.

The Cork-based business owns nearly 300 stores in Northern Ireland, with Centra, SuperValu, Mace and Daybreak all in its portfolio.

Musgrave NI managing director Michael McCormack said many stores had experienced a rise in business, particularly those in housing estates and rural areas.
