500 apply for 35 toy store jobs in Letterkenny

More than 500 people have applied for up to 35 jobs at a new toy store in Co Donegal. Smyths Toy Store is due to open on November 5th in Letterkenny in time for the Christmas rush.

Interviews for jobs at the store, at the Letterkenny Retail Park, are taking place over the next two days. Smyths spokesman Rob McGuckin said they had been inundated with job applications.

The well-known toyshop chain has another branch across the Border in Derry which is hugely popular with Donegal shoppers.

Letterkenny mayor Gerry McMonagle said the arrival of the shop was a huge endorsement for Letterkenny.
