MILLFIELD Shopping centre Balbriggan is the only major shopping centre to start construction in Ireland in the last two years and is due to open in April.
Being built at a cost of €50m, it will accommodate 30 stores which will employ about 450 people.
Picture shows Kevin McCormack of the developer Parkway Properties, with Tony Keohane, chief executive, Tesco Ireland, examining building progress.
Tesco Ireland sources a large proportion of their fresh vegetables from growers in North County Dublin. Estate agents Savills are quoting around €400 per sqm for retail rents in the centre depending on size and location.
