They later connected these premises with a unit selling toys and hardware. The drapery store was damaged by fire within two weeks of this addition. The present supermarket was built in the Car Park of the original store without interruption to business during the eight month rebuilding programme. It cost eleven million pounds, designed by the Ambrose Kelly Group and built by Noonan Construction Ltd, it has one hundred million square feet of indoor retail and circulation area. It has car parking for 550 cars and employs a staff of 350 which increases to 500 during peak periods.
