After months of speculation and anticipation the opening of the TK Maxx store at Athlone Towncentre Shopping Centre will open its doors for the first time today, September 17, at 10am.
With more than 16,000 square feett of retail space, the opening of the TK Maxx store represents the largest and most significant development for Athlone Towncentre since it opened its doors in late 2007.
Spread over two floors adjacent to the Gleeson Street entrance, the store will include extensive ladies’, men’s and children’s departments along with its ever-popular homeware offering. TK Maxx is renowned worldwide for delivering great value on an ever- changing selection of brand name and designer products. Shoppers can expect to enjoy savings of up to 60 per cent on the recommended retail price of many products in store.
Speaking on behalf of Bannon, managing agents for Athlone Towncentre, Ray Geraghty said: “The opening of TK Maxx represents a major milestone for Athlone Towncentre and will further reinforce the centre’s position as the premier shopping destination in the midlands region.”
Shirley Delahunt, marketing manager for Athlone Towncentre highlighted the benefits the store will bring to the local economy: “This represents a huge vote of confidence not only for Athlone Towncentre but for Athlone as a whole. It continues to enhance the retail offering in Athlone and makes us a more attractive destination for customers from far and wide.
“Another huge benefit is of course the creation of additional employment in the area, and it is fantastic to see so many local people joining the team in TK Maxx Athlone. People who will in turn spend their hard-earned weekly wages in a variety of other local businesses and services.”
The official opening of the TK Maxx store in Athlone Towncentre will take place today, September 17, at 10am. The store will be opened by well-known TV3 Xposé presenter, Karen Koster, and Westmeath GAA star Ray Connellan.
