Retail chain to hire 300 staff
DISCOUNT chain Dealz is to create 300 jobs by opening another 10 stores.
The first shop will be a 5,000 sq ft outlet in Mullingar, with others planned for Lisduggan in Waterford, and Drogheda and Clonmel later this year. Dealz chief executive Jim McCarthy, said the first store will bring 30 jobs to Mullingar.
The UK chain has already created more than 300 jobs here and invested more than €2m since it set up its first store in August last year.
It now has stores in Cork, Newbridge, Blanchardstown, Portlaoise, Letterkenny, Killarney and Limerick.
