Hurricane Orphelia

SuperValu is the latest big name grocery giant to shut its doors in Longford ahead of the onset of Hurricane Orphelia

SuperValu is the latest big name grocery giant to add its name to a growing list of companies that have announced its enforced closure today amid heightening concern over the imminent arrival of Hurricane Ophelia.

A spokeswoman confirmed to the Leader this morning its store located at Hazelwood Shopping Centre will close at 11:30am and re-open tomorrow morning at 8:30am.

It follows similar moves undertaken by Tescos and Dunnes Stores, both of whom have taken similar action in the wake of increasing fears over the threat posed by Hurricane Ophelia.
