30 jobs as Sky opens 4 new flagship stores in Ireland

Sky is planning to enter the Irish mobile market next year.

Broadcaster and broadband provider Sky is set to open four brand new flagship stores, with the first store opening today in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Dublin.

The three other stores – at Crescent Shopping Centre, Limerick, Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Cork and Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin – will all open their doors to customers in the coming weeks. 

“Our retail network has played an important role in the growth of the Sky business in Ireland for a number of years”

The opening of Sky’s four new stores represents the company’s largest ever investment in retail in Ireland and includes the creation of 30 new jobs, with roles in managerial and customer advisor positions being created.

The brand-new Blanchardstown store, which opens today, covers 3,000 square feet with the three remaining stores averaging at approximately 1,500 square feet per store.

The expansion follows Sky’s recent announcement that it will be entering the Irish mobile market next year.
