Colin Conway and Eugene Conway of Newell Stores join Aaron Ennis from Danske outside their new supermarket.
The new 25,000 sq ft supermarket will create 150 jobs and, as a direct result, will enhance the Dungannon store with a further 33 jobs through restructuring, the company said in a statement.
According to Newell Stores Director Colin Conway, the £8.5m investment in the development - supported by Danske Bank and the owners of Newell Stores - is a vote of confidence in the Coalisland area, which has see a lack of investment in recent times.
"The opening of our new store will be a welcome boost for the Coalisland, creating 150 jobs in the area," Conway said. "This is also a major step for our family business, which has been built up over the generations and established an excellent reputation in Dungannon."
The new supermarket will contain everything from its own in-store butchery to fruit and vegetables hand picked from the markets.
Mr Conway added: "We were delighted with the state of the art building and the team involved in helping bring this project to completion, from the design team to the local builders who helped further highlight Coalisland companies and their skills."
Aaron Ennis, Danske Bank Corporate Banking Manager spoke of Danske Bank's investment in the project. "Newell Stores is an excellent example of the type of business we are keen to work with. Danske Bank is proud to support such a strong family business and play our part in stimulating both the local jobs market in the Tyrone area, and the wider economy as a whole."
