J&J Haslett has laid out an ambitious store development programme in Northern Ireland based around its smaller Mace Express outlets and the larger Mace Superfresh format.
The company said that £3m will be co-invested with independent retailers over the next three years to add to the current 14 Mace Express stores.
It hopes to have 38 Express and 20 Superfresh stores by the end of next year and 50 Express stores by the end of 2008.
