Dealz marks its second anniversary in Ireland by opening 30th store
Ireland’s discount retailer Dealz today (Friday 27 September), celebrated its second anniversary of trading here by opening its 30th store and announcing plans to open 10 more Irish stores in the new financial year. It is believed the opening of the new stores will create 250 new jobs in the coming months.
Dealz’s 30th store is located at Galway Shopping Centre and has almost 9,000 sq ft of retail space. The opening of Dealz Galway has created 30 new jobs for the local area and brings the total number of jobs created in Ireland to date to over 750.
Since launching in Ireland in late September 2011, Dealz has invested over €8.3 million into the Irish economy. Today’s announcement will mean a further commitment of over €1.75 million over the next 15 months.
Since its opening, Dealz has also been committed to supporting Irish suppliers by stocking a number of locally sourced products which are secured from Irish producers. These products include brands such as Tayto, Brennans Bakery, Dale Farm and Ballygarvey Eggs
Commenting on the group’s second anniversary and its planned expansion in the coming months, Dealz CEO, Jim McCarthy said: “We are delighted to be celebrating our second year of trading in Ireland and to be launching our 30th Dealz store in Galway. Our exciting expansion plans will continue to create new job opportunities across Ireland. Dealz is committed to bringing amazing value to our customers every day with our €1.49 price point and are looking forward to bringing our extensive range of great products and top brands to even more savvy Irish shoppers.”
