Dealz to open 62nd Irish store in Ballina

IRELAND'S largest discount retailer, Dealz, will celebrate the opening of their 62nd store in Ballina tomorrow.

The new 6,460 sq ft store, located at Bartra House on Pearse Street, will create 20 new jobs in the area. It's the retailer’s second store in Mayo following the opening of the Castlebar outlet last November.

Dealz country manager Darren Jones said: “We are delighted to be opening our 62nd store in Ireland and expanding our product offering in Co. Mayo. Our first Mayo store opened in Castlebar in November so we are excited to be expanding the Dealz brand here so quickly with the introduction of Ballina.

“Through Dealz we will be bringing amazing value every day to new customers with our €1.50 price point, and we look forward to welcoming the local community in store over the coming weeks.”

The store opening celebrations will take place from 10 a.m., and visitors to the new store will have the opportunity to win Dealz vouchers ranging from €5 to €50, with golden tickets for the first 50 customers. To add to the party atmosphere there will be a DJ, free face-painting and an appearance from Dougie the Dealz Hound!

Dealz supports Irish charity Make-A-Wish, which grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses, and recently celebrated raising over €250,000 to date.
