Retail News: Irish Retailer to Create 60 Jobs
Posted on Nov 1, 2012
Irish Retailer, The Kilkenny Group, is set to create 60 new jobs, it was announced yesterday.
The company, which is focused on retailing Irish made products, is strongly focused on supporting Irish business and creative talent, adopting a positive "buy Irish" mantra. The 60 new jobs will be spread throughout the country in a variety of roles including administration and sales as well as online operations.
Kilkenny Group CEO, Marian O'Gorman, believed that the smallest bit of extra support for Irish Produce among consumers would help to create vast amounts of jobs throughout Ireland, not only in the retail industry, but also in the craft industry too. Ms O' Gorman is very happy to have the opportunity to create jobs for Irish people despite a fledging industry: "As an Irish company, we are delighted to be creating such levels of employment despite the current retail landscape," she said. "Irish consumers are recognising the importance of buying Irish and there has never been a greater need to support indigenous businesses."
The Kilkenny Group has been supporting Irish craftsmanship for close to 50 years, encouraging people to support Irish Fashion Designers and Craftspeople and has recently opened a new store on Dublin's Grafton Street.
