SUPERMAC’S have commenced the process of trying to hire staff after acquiring a prominent premises in East Clare.

Head of Departments are to be recruited for Supermac’s as they begin plans to renovate what was Niland’s Gala Store and 24/7 service station in Tuamgraney and transform into one of their Plaza sites.

There was shock last September with the sudden closure of the service station which as first reported by The Clare Echo entered receivership.

Originally opened in the 1980s by Tommy Bleach, it was ran by the Bleach family until the 1990s when it was sold to A&M retail stores. Galway based husband and wife, Mike and Amie Niland had owned the store for eleven years.

In November, the Plaza Group which owns Supermac’s acquired the property in an online auction for a fee of €820,000. The property was described as a “substantial forecourt in a high profile location”.

At its peak, the service station employed 22 people with a sit-down area for takeaway dinners, a service station, grocery store and off licence.

A definitive number on the amount of staff that will be employed in Tuamgraney under Supermac’s is unknown at this stage.

However the Plaza Group are hiring in the region of twelve jobs presently for Tuamgraney in roles such as site operations manager, store manager, assistant manager, supervisor, catering assistant, deli manager, deli cook, deli assistant, retail and forecourt manager, retail assistant manager, retail supervisor plus retail and forecourt assistant.

Niland’s had been a busy grocery outlet as well as a service station and it is anticipated with the retail unit of the Plaza will aid to accommodate local users in this capacity.
