Some fifteen jobs are expected to be created in Athlone Towncentre later this month with the opening of two new clothing outlets.
This follows on from the creation of 14 jobs with the recent opening of the new Inglot cosmetics store.
Leading clothing brands Vila and Selected Homme will officially open in two adjoining units in the Towncentre on May 25 next and will further enhance the reputation of Athlone as being the fashion capital of the Midlands.
Shirley Delahunt, Manager and Head of Marketing at Athlone Towncentre, said the new store openings are “a huge vote of confidence in the centre and in Athlone as a shopping destination” and she confirmed that all internal units in the 176,000 sq ft Centre are now fully occupied.
Vila and Selected Homme are part of the Danish-owned clothing company, Bestseller, which employs over 41,000 people across Europe, the Middle East, Canada and China. Their clothing ranges are aimed at fashion-conscious young men and women and are sure to be extremely popular with young shoppers from right across the Midlands.
The opening of Vila Clothing and Selected Homme will bring to five the number of units occupied over the last number of months, with the opening of Quiz Clothing and The Works in the run-up to the busy Christmas period.
