Fleming’s SuperValu celebrate 50 years in business

On Thursday, May 26th 1972, Liam Fleming and his wife Lilian opened the doors to Fleming’s VG on Main Street, Roscommon. On Thursday, May 26th 2022, Liam’s son Shane and his wife Orla acknowledged that day in 1972, fifty years to the day, by having a celebration for both staff and customers in store.

To mark the occasion, a wall to ceiling montage of memories was displayed, depicting the many staff members employed over the years. A beautiful cake, food tastings, and treats were available to sample throughout the afternoon.

Among the guests were Declan and Mary Molloy of Molloy’s Bakery and Fine Food Emporium, and John Campbell of Champion Milk, two businesses that have supplied what was then VG and is now Fleming’s SuperValu throughout the Flemings’ fifty years. Two local family-owned businesses that have also stood the test of time in Roscommon town.

  As a thank you to customers, the Flemings sold a number of products at 1972 prices on the day! Shane, who now runs the business with his wife Orla, also launched a promotion where special scratch cards allowed customers a chance to win their shopping for half price on the day. There were plenty of celebrations among lucky customers who won this nice prize and the promotion continues over the next few weeks when you spend €50 or more.
