Frasers Group set to open two new stores in Ireland including one here in Cork
The stores at Mahon Point Shopping Centre and Whitewater Shopping Centre in Kildare will open on a phased approach, starting with Sports Direct set to open later this year at the two centres, and luxury lifestyle retailer, Frasers, set to open in early 2022.
The stores will open in units both previously occupied by Debenhams at the two shopping centres
Peter O’Meara, Retail Director at Savills Ireland commented:
“These deals are a huge boost to the Irish retail market. They demonstrate that despite a challenging retail market, centres which dominate their trade area will continue to attract the best retailers.”
“The positive impact on both shopping centres will be significant, as Frasers will bring a widened product offering – in a new modern fit-out – which will boost footfall to the benefit of all retailers in situ.”
A spokesperson for Deka Immobilien, the owners of Mahon Point and Whitewater Shopping Centres commented:
“We are delighted to have secured a strong new partner in Frasers at Mahon Point and Whitewater and wish them every success for the future.”
Mahon Point Shopping Centre is Munster’s largest shopping destination. The centre offers an exciting range of over 60 high street stores, restaurants, cafes, as well as a 13 screen cinema and additional leisure facilities.
