It’s not yet clear how many the new outlet will employ but it will represent another jobs boost for the locality following the recent opening of Smyths Toy Superstore and Sofa World both of which are located at the Letterkenny Retail Park.

It follows several years of closures as the recession bit deep, particularly on the Main Street area where a number of retail businesses went to the wall.
