UK retailer Iceland Foods has opened a new store in Coolock, north Dublin, its 12th store in the Republic of Ireland, as it continues its expansion in the country.
This follows on from the launch of a store in Tiperary three weeks ago. Together, the new store openings have created 55 jobs, bringing to 250 the number employed by the retailer in Ireland.
It now operates stores in Dublin (Ballyfermot, Coolock, Finglas, Navan Road, Talbot Street and Northside Shopping Centre), Carlow, Tipperary (Clonmel), Longford, Cork (Midleton), Kerry (Tralee) and Waterford.
“We’re delighted to announce the additions of our new Dublin and Tipperary stores and look forward to bringing great value and a brand you can trust to even more customers in Coolock, aswell as Clonmel, across our fresh groceries and frozen products," said Ron Metcalfe, Managing Director of Iceland Ireland.
"Iceland has been warmly welcomed by locals in both areas, and I would like to officially welcome all of the new staff across both stores who have joined the Iceland team and will help us deliver the power of frozen to Irish customers."
