Twelve workers at a Derry cash and carry business have been told that they could lose their jobs.

The work currently carried out at Musgrave’s distribution centre at Pennyburn Industrial Estate is to transfer to the company’s warehouse in Belfast.

A spokesperson for the company said: “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 which is a dedicated tri temp distribution centre.

“The MarketPlace Derry outlet will remain open as a Customer Collect service only which will regrettably result in approximately 12 roles being at risk of redundancy.

“Musgrave Wholesale Partners is doing everything it can to minimise the impact of this transfer and is also putting in place an extensive outplacement support programme for all impacted employees, as they seek alternative employment.”
