The refurbishment includes a complete overhaul of the fresh-food section with an expansion of the fish-counter, butchery, and bakery counter.

Renowned for its fresh food and support of local Northern Irish suppliers, Tesco NI has worked with local suppliers to bring the craftsmanship and passion of a traditional local butcher and fishmonger with the convenience of Tesco NI, with Primacy Farm Butchers and Molloy’s Fishmongers offering new state of-the-art counters in store.

The newly refurbished store also features a new state-of-the-art bakery, with only 50 of its kind within Tesco GB. This is the first bakery of its type to launch in Northern Ireland. Highly trained Tesco bakers will bake fresh bread, cakes and pastries in-store every day.

Craig O’Neill, Store Manager Tesco Cookstown, said: “We are very proud to have taken direct customer feedback onboard when designing the fit-out and we now have state of the art low level fittings, making the shopping experience much more pleasant for our customers.”
