Tesco Ireland Opens A New Store On Townsend Street

Tesco Ireland has opened its 172nd store on Townsend Street, in Dublin’s city centre, creating 14 new jobs for the area.

The new-store opening comes less than a week after the retailer opened a Blanchardstown outlet.

Tesco Townsend Street measures just over 3,000 square feet and will include an in-store bakery, coffee station, and DRS machine.

The new premises will also include energy-saving features, such as fridge doors, to advance Tesco’s sustainability goals.

‘Modern Retail Experience’

Speaking about the new Express store, the chief operating officer of Tesco Ireland, Geoff Byrne, said, “We think people living and working in the city centre will be very pleased to have a new Tesco store in their area.


“It offers a modern retail experience and is part of our ongoing investment in new stores in urban centres across the country.

“We have always received a warm welcome from the communities where we are now based, and we are committed to ensuring that our new stores play a big part in local communities for many years to come.”

At the opening, the store manager of the new supermarket, Peter Allen, said, “The team and I are excited to open the doors of this brilliant new Express store.

“We can’t wait to welcome our new customers. We’re especially proud to meet St Patrick’s Girls National School in Ringsend, who are participating in our Stronger Starts schools programme.

“We’re also looking forward to meeting local groups and projects who need our support through the Community Fund over the coming months.”


Community Engagement

Tesco Ireland’s Community Fund has supported thousands of organisations across the country since its inception.

It aims to engage local communities with the retailer and has supported everything from GAA clubs to children’s charities.

The Townsend Street store will support the locality with donations to three local causes as part of its first campaign.

The causes are Cambridge Girls’ Football Club, City Quay National School, and Talk About Youth Project – St Andrew’s Resource Centre.
