The opening of Decathlon’s first Irish store in Dublin has proved so successful that the company is already planning to create 25 new jobs, while also considering new openings in the cities of Cork and Galway. The Dublin store was inaugurated on June 13 and, according to a report in the Irish Times, it welcomed 4,000 visitors a day during the first six days, with people queuing to get in. In the same report, the company’s Irish chief executive, Bastien Grandgeorge, even apologized for the customers who faced temporarily empty shelves.
