Competition for Stillorgan consumers looks about to heat up in Dublin's southside. Treasury Holdings has applied for planning permission to convert its Bondi Nite Club building into a convenience store and this may appeal to one of the German discount chains.
A Treasury spokesman says the 1.3 acre site, which has the advantage of a high profile location overlooking the N11, has attracted "considerable interest from a number ofretailers".
The move follows a planning application from Neil Durkan to locate a similar store in the nearby shopping mall next to the AIB branch. Meanwhile a Treasury spokesman says that a major international fashion retailer is expected to shortly sign up for a store in the Stillorgan Shopping Centre.
Donnybrook Fair is also opening a new store there.
