Discount store Dealz is to create 55 jobs through the opening of two new stores on Saturday in Cork and Kerry.

Dealz is opening a 3,750sq ft store in Bandon, Co Cork, and a 6,700sq ft store at Deepark Retail Park in Killarney.

Since September 2011, Dealz has opened 56 stores nationwide, creating more than 1,100 jobs.

The chain is part of Poundland, Europe’s largest single-price value general merchandise retailer. Last June the British discount retailer said it would open 20-30 net new stores, “primarily in the Republic of Ireland and in retail parks”.

The Epicurean Food Hall on Dublin’s Liffey Street, which closed earlier this year, recently reopened as a branch of Dealz.
