Agents JLL have enlisted traders to fill the last two vacant shops in Monaghan shopping centre.

Trader CEX is to pay a rent of €30,000 for a 111sq m (1,200sq ft) ground-floor shop with a small mezzanine. The electronics retailer is trading from 21 locations countrywide including Westmoreland Street in Dublin and the Omni and Stillorgan shopping centres.
