Number 23 Opens for Eason’s

The 23rd Eason’s store has officially opened in Parkway Shopping Centre in Limerick.

The national book retailer opened its 22nd franchise store in Listowel, Co Kerry earlier this year. The new franchise stores should create up to 50 new jobs.

We’re delighted to open a second Eason store in Limerick, a city with which we’ve had a long association, and particularly so as we welcome Minister Noonan here today,” said Conor Whelan, managing director, Eason & Son. “This store in Parkway Shopping Centre is an ideal shopping location for the city and ensures Eason’s has a strong presence throughout the Limerick region.

“Last year we opened four franchise stores and this year will add another four creating up to 50 jobs throughout the country.”

Speaking at the opening, Minister Noonan again confirmed his support for Get Into Reading, an initiative run by Eason’s aimed at supporting child literacy.
