Wanze Properties (Dundalk) Limited, the company behind the construction of the new Tesco Xtra megastore in Dundalk, have been given the go ahead to install a new café in the revamped supermarket.
The company were recently granted planning permission to extend unit 4 in the premises by circa 42 square metres from 127 square metres to 169 square metres.
They have also been given permission to the change the use of the unit to a café, while they are also set to rearrange the adjacent ancillary services area and toilet facilities.
The new Tesco Xtra megastore will be located on the site of the old Dundalk Shopping Centre at the junction of Dublin Street, Hill Street and Stapleton Place.
The old centre was demolished before Christmas with construction work on the new Tesco premises well underway at this stage ahead of its expected opening in August.
As well as Tesco, the new building is also set to feature Traynor’s Butchers and Hickey’s Pharmacy, who are both operating out of temporary units alongside a Tesco Metro store on the Avenue Road during the construction phase.
