A further 400 new jobs will be created as a result of the €50m Phase 2 extension of Kildare Village.

Sales at Kildare Village are at a record high as they increased by 17.7pc in the year to date ahead of a new phase of extensions that will see 33 new boutiques and two new restaurants open, bringing the total number of boutiques up to 100.

The extension will bring the amount of staff employed at the Village to 1,000.

The sales yield at the Village, which contributes €5.5m in wages to the local economy, is also up by 15.8pc so far this year.

Kildare Village also says that 120 jobs were created during the construction of the Phase 2 expansion, which was conducted by Collen Construction.

The combined results of last year and this year place Kildare Village amongst the best performing of the nine Villages across Europe that are operated by Value Retail.
