Golden Discs announce the opening of three new stores in Ireland
Once the new stores have opened, there will be 16 Golden Discs outlets in Ireland.
Golden Discs have announced the opening of three new stores in Dublin and Wexford.
The first of the new stores opened on 12 North Main Street in Wexford on Saturday, November 4, while the two new Dublin stores, in the Square, Tallaght and 52 Henry Street respectively, will open this coming Saturday, November 18.
The three additional locations will bring the total number of Golden Discs specialist stores to 16 nationwide, supported by their recently launched new web-store and concession stores in 80 Tesco locations all over Ireland.
Golden Discs have also announced that they will be hiring an additional 50 personnel to man their new stores, who will join their current team of over 100 staff.
As well as expanding on the ground, Golden Discs have also launched a brand-new web-store in time for the festive season.
The web-store offers thousands of the most popular albums on CD and Vinyl, the best movies on DVD and Blu-Ray and will also be selling games and accessories in the coming weeks. All items can be delivered direct to a customer’s front door, with a gift wrapping service also available online.
“Demand for music continues to grow and we are really excited to be opening new stores to service that demand,” said Stephen Fitzgerald, CEO of Golden Discs.
“The vinyl renaissance shows no signs of abating and we are refocusing our efforts to grow the category by offering customers a more extensive range of catalogue, re-issues and new release both in-store and online.”
“Everyone at Golden Discs is working around the clock to get the new stores fitted, stocked and open as quickly as possible," Fitzgerald added.
“The next few months are the busiest of the year and typically also carry the most exciting releases and this year is no exception with huge audio and visual releases.”
