Discount retailer Dealz yesterday opened its 27th Irish shop, creating 24 jobs in the north Dublin suburb of Finglas.
Located in the Finglas Village Centre, the shop brings the number of jobs created by the firm in Ireland to more than 630.
Dealz offers a range of top brands and established own-label products, most at a price point of €1.49.
The retailer is a part of Poundland, which has more than 440 stores in the UK. Outlets include Portlaoise, Killarney, Letterkenny, Limerick, Athlone, Cork, Cavan and Monaghan.
Meanwhile, Waltons Music is to open a 7,500sq ft superstore in the Blanchardstown Centre, creating about 10 jobs. The store, to open on August 24th, will replace the outlet on Frederick Street in the city centre. It will carry a much larger range of products.
The Waltons shop on South Great George's Street was the setting of the movie Once's most famous scene where Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova sing their Oscar-winning song Falling Slowly together. This store will remain open.
