Retailers are reopening in the country's largest shopping centre today, its manager has said, but it could have 'been a different scenario' had the reopening date not been brought forward.

"No one has told us they are not coming back which is really good news but that could have been a different scenario on August 10," said Don Nugent, manager of Dundrum Town Centre on Dublin's southside. "Those two months could have been make or break for a number of retailers."

Mr Nugent acknowledged that bringing forward the opening date for shopping centres by eight weeks will make "a huge difference to the success of some of the retail brands".
