ENNISKILLEN employment has been another blow with the announcement today (Thursday) that Mugrave Marketplace, located at the Killyhevlin Industrial Estate, will close its doors at the end of February.
A spokesman for Musgrave Marketplace confirmed the closure in Enniskillen and the loss of 16 jobs.
“Musgrave Wholesale Partners today announced the consolidation of its MarketPlace brand in Northern Ireland. This has included an investment in a warehouse management system with Voicepick technology in its Marketplace Duncrue site in Belfast. The company will now transfer its delivered operation from its Enniskillen and Lurgan Cash and Carry outlets to its site in MarketPlace Duncrue.
“Musgrave Wholesale Partners believes that consolidating its network will provide customers with a wider range of products and a much more effective and efficient delivery service, operated from its state-of-the-art Belfast Duncrue site.
“Regrettably, this means the Enniskillen site will close at the end of February resulting in 16 job losses, with a further one hopefully redeployed in a similar role within the business. The Lurgan outlet will remain open for a Customer Collect service only which will regrettably result in seven job losses, with a further five hopefully redeployed in a similar role within the business.
“Musgrave Wholesale Partners is doing everything it can to minimise the impact of this closure and it will also be putting in place an extensive outplacement support programme for all impacted employees, as they seek alternative employment.”
