Dealz to create a further 400 jobs in Ireland

dealzDealz, the discount retailer, is to create 400 new jobs as part of a new €6 million investment in Ireland.

The company, which has just opened its 50th store in the country, currently employs more than 1,500 people in the Republic and will be creating a further 200 temporary positions over the holiday period.

Dealz opened its first store here in 2011 and since then has invested over €20 million into the Irish economy.

“We are delighted to be celebrating our fourth year of trading here in Ireland with the opening of our 50th Dealz store. Now as a major retailer in the Irish market we look towards year five and our exciting expansion plans, which will not only continue to create new job opportunities for Irish workers but will allow us to bring our amazing value and customer experience to more Irish shoppers across the country,” said chief executive Jim McCarthy.

Dealz was recently listed as one of the top 30 companies in Ireland for customer experience in a survey carried out by Amárach Research for CEXi.org.

The group, which is owned by Poundland, said in June it has a long-term target of 70 stores in the Republic with Mr McCarthy saying the brand was “under-exploited” in Ireland.

The company does not disclose financial results for Ireland but said it currently serves about 300,000 customers in the Republic.
