Outdoor clothing company Regatta Great Outdoors has announced the creation of 100 new jobs in Ireland with the opening of several new stores nationwide including key locations in Galway, Dublin and Waterford. This expansion sees Regatta Great Outdoors set to become a prominent household name across Ireland as the company has reported multi-million turnovers in recent years.

Cork based company Regatta Great Outdoors started life in Ireland in 2000 when Brian Fox was appointed as a sales representative for the brand and sold to buyers from his own garage in his own home. With rapid growth, Regatta opened their first concession in Shaws of Wexford in 2004, expanding to 18 concession stores by 2009 and finally opening the first standalone store in Limerick in 2011. Proving very successful for the brand, they now have eleven standalone stores across the country with seven more openings planned this year.

Regatta Ireland Director, Brian Fox, commenting on the announcement says: “The expansion of the Regatta brand in Ireland is to satisfy customer demand, which has grown due to the affordable product range we have available in our stores. There is a strong market for what we offer in Ireland, which is both fashion and technical outdoor wear as well as advanced footwear and camping ranges. We are delighted to see our business growing following some turbulent years in Ireland as we are creating new jobs in local areas. We look forward to continued growth and success in the coming years”.

Welcoming the initiative by Regatta Great Outdoors, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD said: “This is great news from a dynamic company which is going from strength to strength and creating 100 new jobs. I am impressed that most of the expanded range of outlets are in regional locations, serving towns around the country. This is really welcome and supports the Government’s efforts to drive Regional Development and job creation in locations away from the main cities. A vibrant retail sector is key to creating vibrant towns and communities across the country and helps to make a place attractive to work in, socialise in and live in. I look forward to this company’s on-going success”.
