Food retailer Iceland has announced a €12 million investment in nine new stores in Ireland this year. 270 new jobs will be created across the country as part of the investment in the new stores, as the company continues to expand nationwide. 2017 is set to be the biggest year yet for Iceland Ireland, with nine stores announced for Tallaght, Galway, Cork (Douglas, Fermoy, Ballincollig) Letterkenny, Limerick, Shannon, and Gorey in the coming months.

Since its launch in 2013, Iceland has been committed to further expansion in Ireland, building a strong team on the ground and growing the store base steadily over the years. Tallaght is the thirteenth store in the portfolio which will grow to 21 stores nationwide in the next 12 months. This growth will see Iceland grow to an employee base of over 530 in the latter half of the year.

Iceland is home to over 2,000 branded fresh and frozen grocery products, proud to support Irish with more than 32 local suppliers – all at great prices, in addition to being the exclusive stockist of the Slimming World range in Ireland. It’s even easier to enjoy the #PowerOfFrozen at home as selected Iceland stores offer free home delivery.

The new store is Iceland’s biggest yet, covering 15,000sq ft and creating 35 jobs for the area. This brings the total number of current staff to 268 in Ireland, a great boost for the local area and the country’s retail industry.
