Jedward open new Vincents
The high energy duo of Jedward gave the official opening of the new Vincents shop on Castletown Road a shot in the arm last Monday.
The X-Factor and Eurovision pop duo were on hand to sign autographs and pose for selfies as St Vincent de Paul opened their new community shop, the third Vincents shop in the town.
'This shop is all about the community and will offer tremendous customer service to an area where there is a social need' explained Regional Retail manager, Peter Johnston.
'This shop is about bringing more of the ethos of the Society into the shops and introducing customer appreciation events,, such as Jedward at the opening'.
There will be regular events in the shop, such as live music and information talks and events.
The shop will stock quality clothing, garments, bric-a-brac and toys at very low prices.
'For Black Friday we will have a great sale of quality goods at terrific prices', added Peter.
Vincents already have two other shops in the town, with one in Clanbrassil Street, selling furniture as well as clothing and bric-a-brac and another in Jocelyn Street which sells clothing and is also the meeting centre for SVP visitation conferences in the Dundalk area.
'We have a fantastically committed team that work between all the three shops in Dundalk, made up of over 45 volunteers, three full time and two part-time staff, plus seven people on community employment schemes', said Peter Johnston.
The Castletown Road shop on the town side of the railway bridge will be open from 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday with late opening until 6.30 on Thursdays and Saturdays.
