Construction to begin on new Harvey Norman Tallaght store in October

HARVEY Norman Ireland announced last week the creation of over 50 new jobs with the acquisition and development of a site for a new Tallaght store.

The new store will be located in Airton Road Retail Park, Tallaght, with construction scheduled to begin in October.

The announcement will see Harvey Norman merge five smaller retail units in the park to create an exciting new flagship format.

Lying derelict since 2008, the Airton Road Retail Park never opened and over the years the site deteriorated and fell victim to disuse. Harvey Norman plan to invest in the region of €6m in the project to develop and rejuvenate the area with a fresh modern retail development.

The Airton Road store will boast almost 60,000 sq ft of retail space, a 250 space carpark, 42 cycle park stands and a Costa Coffee cafe.

As outlined in the planning permission to South Dublin County Council, Harvey Norman will fund the creation of new access and road improvements to the Greenhills Road including plans to widen lanes, provision of a cycle lane, right-hand turn lanes, traffic lights, pedestrian and cycle crossing points and traffic management systems.

Blaine Callard, CEO Harvey Norman Ireland, added “we are so excited to be coming to Tallaght, and have been actively looking for a fifth Dublin site for some time.

"The existing location and buildings on the corner of Airton Road and Greenhills Road are perfect for this new huge Harvey Norman store.

"The store is going to be our best foot forward, with our latest shopfitting and interior design concepts. It will be a fresh and vibrant home centre showcasing the best of what we have to offer, and all at great value.”
