New mart to be open by next year in Listowel

The Manager of the mart site in Listowel says he expects the new facility to be open by the summer of next year. The mart is to receive a grant of 455,000 euro to help with the company’s move to the outskirts of town. The allocation will go towards relocation and upgrading costs and the provision of nutrient management control. The company sold their town centre premises for a reported 5 million euro. Barney O Connell is Manager of the mart. He says the move is expensive.
