A long-awaited new Penneys store will open today in Tallaght this morning.

The Square shopping centre in Tallaght opened in 1990 and more than three decades on it is finally getting its first outlet of the iconic fashion chain.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin officially opened the shop this morning, with customers allowed through the doors from 10.30am.


It follows a €10 million euro investment by the retailer and the creation of 300 new jobs. It's part of Primark’s commitment to invest €250 million in Ireland over the next 10 years.

This is the first new Penneys store in Dublin in six years, following its opening in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in December 2016 and is the retailer’s 37th store in Ireland.

Located on the ground floor of The Square, it is one of the largest fashion stores at the shopping centre with 43,500 square feet of retail space and a Nails™ beauty salon.

Commenting at the Tallaght store opening, Taoiseach Micheál Martin said; "Penneys is at the centre of Irish and international retail, and its success continues to prove how valued the brand is in our lives in Ireland."

Paul Marchant, Chief Executive of Primark, also said: "We know our customers have been waiting for Penneys at The Square for a long time and we are delighted to finally open our doors to this great community."
