It is the largest shopping centre in the North West of Ireland and offers an unrivalled tenant line up to include Next, TK Maxx, River Island, Pull & Bear, Monsoon, Oasis, Jane Norman, Lifestyle Sports but to mention a few! Quayside's tenant mix provides the strongest fashion offer in Sligo
In 2011 Quayside fought back against the unprecedented retail downturn in living memory by appointing specialist Shopping Centre Management firm, Colliers International. Colliers' strategy for Quayside is simple, build on its reputation as 'The Home of Fashion in Sligo'.
Colliers needed a person who was familiar with how Quayside customers thought, knew the retail industry and who was experienced in retail management. The appointment of Christine Dolan as Retail Marketing Manager in 2011 was a natural choice.
Christine has been involved in Quayside since 2006, being a leading management force in Jane Norman, an international ladies fashion store. Christine resembles our typical customer, local, youthful, fashionable and attractive - A person who lives fashion!
Anchor store, TK Maxx, illustrated its faith in Christine's marketing movement by investing in a €600K store refit. Christine's success is further underlined by new stores Hidden Hearing, Celebrations, Angelina's Polish Grocery and more recently Gerard fashions all opening in recent months.
Christine believes 'Viral Marketing is the future. The public flotation of facebook recently speaks volumes. Retailers internationally are embracing this medium. In times when marketing budgets are reducing, facebook and the web in general are great solutions. Check us out www.facebook.com/quaysideshopping''. - Christine never missing an opportunity for Quayside!
In these challenging times it is nice to know that a Sligo person is spear heading the introduction of international marketing knowledge into a regional shopping centre on our door steps.
With Christine knowledge and energy the future is bright for 'The home of Fashion in
