In another boost for Clonmel town centre, DV8, the large Northern Ireland fashion chain, have secured a unit in the Ormonde Centre, Gladstone St, Clonmel.
They will occupy approx. 5,000 sq ft of the former Tesco unit, close to other strong retailers such as Easons, Boots, McDonalds, Specsavers and many more.
DV8 launched its first high street store in 1994 offering a ground-breaking range of branded and own brand clothing, footwear and accessories for men and women. Since then they have grown to become one of the top independent fashion retailers, both online and on the high street, known for some of the best fashion brands.
Clonmel will be their 26th store and the first in the Republic. They hope to open a further 6-8 stores across Ireland over the next 12 months.
Pat Quirke says that a number of lettings over the last 2 months have signalled a resurgence of the town centre, with River Island, PhotoStation and a variety of other retailers voting with their pockets and opening outlets.
The launch of a PPP process for construction of a town-centre multi-storey car-park will also be a massive boost to Clonmel.
