Penneys has announced that it will officially open the doors of its newly relocated store in Dundrum Town Centre on Thursday 22 June at 10am. The retailer has invested €14.8 million in this new and much improved store, reinforcing its continued commitment to the Irish market.
Penneys is expanding and relocating to the second and third floor of the former House of Fraser site, which will feature 60,000 square feet of prime retail space and represents a 64% increase in size from the current Dundrum Penneys store.
Once open, Penneys will become one of Dundrum Town Centre’s largest fashion stores and the third-largest Penneys store in Ireland, following its flagship store on Mary Street and its store in the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin.
Damien O’Neill, head of Penneys Ireland and Northern Ireland, said, ”We can’t wait to welcome our valued customers and colleagues into our fantastic new store in Dundrum. It’s an important location for Penneys and very popular with our customers.
“The store is nearly ready and looking incredible. We are confident our customers are going to love our new space, and as it’s twice the size of our current store, we are excited to offer a much wider selection of products across fashion, beauty, lifestyle and homeware, including some great new services.
“We are committed to providing the best in-store experience to our customers in Ireland and are proud to continue investing in Irish retail.”
To support the bigger store, Penneys is calling on people to join its team in a number of retail roles.
Recruitment is now live, and interested candidates can apply for a position through the Primark careers website.
Don Nugent, director of Dundrum Town Centre, said, “We are delighted that Penneys has committed to a continued presence in Dundrum Town Centre, and at such prime locations – on Levels Two and Three of the mall.
“We know our customers to the centre will be excited to shop the Penneys products they know and love in the new store, and we look forward to the excitement of opening day, on Thursday 22 June.”
