Superquinn has big plans for its E20 million Naas site

January 4, 2010

THE relocation of the Superquinn store in Naas is reportedly set to include a cinema and leisure complex. The supermarket giant is proposing to move its existing supermarket operation from its current location on the Main Street in Naas to the site of the former St. Patrick’s Community College on the Newbridge Road.

Early in 2008 Superquinn paid more than n20m for the site – at a time when property was significantly more valuable.

According to the company it will be in partnership with other companies for the development, which will also include shop units, an off licence, cafe and an underground car park.

If the project goes ahead it will be competition with the Storm Cinema complex on the outskirts of the town and the recently opened cinema development in Newbridge at the Whitewater shopping centre.

The new location would offer the retailer more space than its existing location off Main Street which is regularly congested due to the confined nature of the site.

The site of the former VEC will mean that Superquinn can increase the size of the grocery floor space and also improve on car parking and accessibility.

Former owner, Senator Feargal Quinn sold the then family business in 2005 for around n450 million to Select Retail Holdings, which is backed by a number of businessmen.
