The supermarket chain will also revamp 30 additional stores as part of a €30 million investment programme.

The retailer recorded a new sales milestone of €2.724 billion in 2018, with a key trend being the continued growth in SuperValu’s online shopping service.

"We plan to build our momentum in 2019 with a €30 million investment programme, which will see three new stores opened and an existing 30 stores revamped as we continue to rollout new shopping concepts such as Vegetarian and Vegan zones, new salad bars and health and wellness aisles, adding both theatre and on trend ranges for the new shoppers evolving tastes."
