THERE was great excitement in Coolock recently for the opening of a brand new superstore that will provide 80 full and part-time jobs in the area. 

After months of anticipation, The Range opened its doors at new premises close to Northside Shopping Centre. 

Chief Operating Officer of The Range, Alex Simpkin and Regional Controller of The Range Ireland, Ken Fox, opened the branch.  

Store Manager, Michelle Clarke and Deputy Lord Mayor of Dublin, Cllr Cathleen Carney Boud, joined them for the big event.  

It is the second branch of The Range to open in Dublin following the successful launching of a store at The Retail Park, Liffey Valley, in May 2017. The Range now has seven stores in the Republic of Ireland.

During the ceremony, friendly staff were joined by Captain Range, the company’s mascot to welcome customers to the store. 

Once the ribbon was cut, shoppers couldn’t wait to explore their new store and discover all of the products on offer. 

The store provides great value products across 16 departments, including Arts & Crafts, DIY and Kitchen & Dining. There are fantastic offers for customers to enjoy running across all departments until July 15.

Speaking at the opening, Devon-based entrepreneur, Chris Dawson, owner and founder of The Range, said: “It was great to have so many eager customers queuing for the grand opening at Northside. 

“We are certain that the jobs we have created will be a welcome boost to city and surrounding areas. 

“We would like to thank the city council for their support in welcoming us to Dublin.

“We put our customers at the heart of everything we do and it is great that we can now offer a second branch in the city. We hope that all of our customers found themselves some fantastic bargains.”
