Opening date for bigger Penneys on Laois border revealed

REVEALED: Opening date for 'bigger and better' Penneys in Carlow

Bigger and Better say Penneys

The wait for Carlow Penneys fans is almost over with news that Penneys will open its much-anticipated brand-new store in Carlow this month. 

At 28,000 sq. ft of fantastic shopping space, the store plans to bring an even bigger and better Penneys experience to customers.

The newly relocated store, which will be situated on Kennedy Avenue in Carlow Town, will open its doors on Tuesday, June 14 at 9am.

Employing over 100 people from the local area, the store’s €12 million investment is the first major milestone as part of the €250 million the retailer has committed to invest in Ireland over the next ten years.

Customers to the new Carlow store will find Penneys’ latest summer fashion trends, in addition to its great value everyday must-haves across women’s, men’s, kids and homewares, as well as beauty and accessories. The store will feature Penneys’ popular licensed ranges including NBA, Disney and a brand-new collection with the Netflix smash hit Stranger Things, and a dedicated denim trend area in-store. It will also feature a wide range of clothes and products under its growing Primark Cares label, as part of its pledge to make more sustainable fashion affordable for everyone.

The new store will also operate on 100% renewable energy and be the first Penneys store in Ireland to have solar panels placed on the roof, and all of the store’s solar output will be used to fulfil its electricity needs.

Damien O’Neill, Head of Penneys ROI and NI, said: “We can’t wait to welcome our colleagues and customers into our fantastic new store. We now have a bigger and better offering for our customers in Carlow, so whether it’s families or fashion followers, there’s summer trends and affordable choices for everyone. This store is the first major milestone of our ongoing €250 million investment into Ireland, our first and home market.  We are proud to continue to play our part in supporting Irish towns and communities and we are always grateful for our amazing customers in Ireland.”

Penneys, which operates as Primark outside of Ireland, has 36 stores in Ireland and 403 stores in total across Europe and North America. The new store in Carlow is part of its commitment to invest over €250 million in Ireland over the next 10 years, including a new store in Tallaght, Dublin later this year, and includes the redevelopment, relocation and/or refurbishment of its Cork, Dublin, and Galway stores, as well as other locations across the country. The investment also includes the construction of a €75 million state-of-the-art warehousing and distribution facility in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, which recently started construction.
