The Jonesborough store is part of a major new development at what was formerly Rice’s and most recently McNamee’s community store.

To mark the opening of the new store, school children from the local Jonesborough Primary School were invited with their class teachers to visit the new store and witness history in the making as the shop opened its doors for its first day of trading.  In addition, children from the local playschool, Naiscoil Shliabh gCuilinn came along with their parents to present their collection boxes for the new store tills.

20 jobs have been created by the new business, including management, chefs, floor and till staff.  This is an important new development in the village of Jonesborough which is an isolated, rural village largely cut off from the main economic hubs of Newry and Dundalk.  Jonesborough Community will benefit greatly from the financial investment and from the new local services.

Terry Mulkerns commented “We are excited to be launching this new store in the village of Jonesborough, we hope it will benefit this village and become a new hub for this community.  It’s lovely to welcome some of our local school children here today to witness history in the making”

Mulkerns SPAR Jonesborough will be opened 7 days a week, and will offer a wide range of groceries, fresh produce, delicatessen, hot food, carvery, solid fuels, and in addition the local Post Office will also be getting a fresh look and moving in to the new store.  Stay tuned for updates on jobs and offers on Facebook at “Mulkerns SPAR Jonesborough”.
