The second of Sky’s new flagship retail stores opens today in Limerick
Sky has today opened the second of four-brand new Irish flagship retail stores in Crescent Shopping Centre, Limerick. The opening of these stores includes the creation of 30 new jobs, with roles in managerial and customer advisor positions being created. This retail store announcement also comes following Sky’s recent announcement that it will be entering the Irish mobile market next year.
Sky’s new flagship stores have been developed to give customers the opportunity to fully experience Sky’s award-winning products and offerings, as well as innovative new products that will launch in Ireland in due course. Sky store teams will also be able to facilitate customer purchases and customer support.
The first of Sky’s new stores opened last month in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin with the two remaining stores set to open in the coming weeks in Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Cork and Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin.
Speaking about Sky’s new flagship store in Limerick, Sky Ireland CEO, JD Buckley, said: “Our retail network has played an important role in the growth of the Sky business in Ireland for a number of years. As we continue to innovate and expand our customer offering, our new flagship store in Limerick will give customers the opportunity to get the full Sky experience across all of our innovative products and services. We are delighted to be opening these stores in fantastic, landmark locations and we are looking forward to welcoming 30 new recruits to the 1,000 strong Sky team in Ireland.”
The opening of these flagship stores in Ireland also follows the success of the multiple retail stores that have opened across the UK over the past 2 years, with the first UK store opening its doors in Liverpool in October 2020.
