Penneys has opened its revamped and extended store in Clonmel following an investment of €5.7 million by the retailer.

Located on O’Connell Street in the Tipperary town, the renovated store features an additional lower ground floor.


The former basement stock room level has been converted into a new retail space for the kids, menswear, and homeware departments. The existing floor now features a bigger womenswear department.

Damien O’Neill, head of Penneys Ireland and Northern Ireland, said: "This refreshed store with increased floor space will allow us to showcase even more of our product range, offering great-value fashion and essentials to the people of Tipperary. We are proud to continue to play our part in supporting local towns and communities and to investing in Irish retail."
