Dealz to open ten new stores in Ireland in next year

Discount retailer Dealz is creating at least 300 new jobs in Ireland with the opening of an additional ten stores by the end of its financial year.

Dealz has already created over 300 Irish jobs and has invested over €2m into the Irish economy since it launched here in August 2011.

An integrated part of European discount retailer Poundland, Dealz has opened nine stores across the Republic, including Blanchardstown, Portlaoise, Letterkenny, Killarney, Newbridge, Limerick, Cork, Athlone and Santry.

The expansion plan starts with the opening of a new 5,000 sq ft store in Mullingar, Co Westmeath this week, creating up to 30 jobs. Dealz will also be opening stores in Lisduggan, Co Waterford, Drogheda, and Clonmel later this year.

Mark Thallon from TDK commented: “Dealz will have opened ten stores in Ireland in a relatively short period of time which is testament to their professional team and the quick decision making process. The success of these openings demonstrates to landlords what a positive addition Dealz is, not only as a retailer, but as a footfall driver to local towns”
