business news in context, analysis with attitude

Ireland's Superquinn will open as many as 10 "Superquinn Select" convenience stores over the next 18 months, reports.

"This new launch will represent Superquinn's second venture into the c-store sector following the SuperQ joint venture with Texaco which was scrapped in 2002," according to the report ".However, it is believed that improved distribution facilities have solved the problems which dogged SuperQ."

Superquinn deputy chairman Eamonn Quinn said that 'Select' format will address the increasing importance of the convenience culture in Irish society.
KC's View:
You gotta love Superquinn. Even on those rare occasions when something doesn't work out right, it keeps working and working on problems until it figures out how to make and keep its offering relevant to consumers' changing needs and desires.
