Danish brand Tiger Stores is set to bid a cheery Halløj to Sligo shoppers as they open their fifteenth Irish store at Sligo’s Quayside Shopping Centre on Wednesday, March 25.
Employing six staff, the Danish brand brings its own take on Scandi-chic to Sligo, and is a welcome addition to Quayside Shopping Centre. For Tiger Stores Ireland Operations Director/Owner Gillian Maxwell, who introduced the brand to Ireland just three years ago, Sligo was an obvious choice for their fifteenth store: “As the second largest city in the West, Sligo is the perfect location for Tiger. Steeped in history yet with a great infrastructure, it’s a regional hub for tourism and trade, where culture and commerce mix easily, and surfers and shoppers are equally at home. We can’t wait to get there!”
Commenting on Tiger’s new store, Sligo Chamber CEO Paul Keyes said, “Sligo Chamber is delighted to welcome the Tiger store into Sligo’s city core at Quayside. The Tiger store will add to the ever-growing mix of things to see, do and enjoy in Sligo. The role of the Chamber is to help Sligo grow and we wish the promoters every success in this exciting venture, which will add to the retail experience and offering for our many local shoppers and visitors.”
The Tiger brand has a simple mission – to provide stylish products featuring the best of Danish design, in a pleasant environment, at astonishingly low prices, with prices from just €1 to €30 at most. It’s a concept that Irish shoppers have clearly taken to heart. With 15 stores in Ireland since its arrival just three years ago, the Sligo store being the most recent, Tiger is certainly a brand in the ascendant, winning two of the most highly-coveted accolades at the 2014 Retail Excellence Ireland Awards, including Company of the Year and Best Small Company (under 100 employees).
From March 25, Sligo shoppers can look forward to Tiger’s design-led, low-cost colourful lifestyle products, from homewares to toys, stationery, toiletries and accessories. Stores are like playgrounds, brightly lit but with paired-back furniture, while new stock deliveries every fortnight mean that any given time, 30 – 40 per cent of the stock is new, delivering a consistently fresh shopping experience. Get to Quayside Shopping Centre on March 25 and prepare to be wowed.
Tiger, Unit 9 Quayside Shopping Centre, Sligo, opens Wednesday March 25 at 10am, and subsequently Monday – Saturday from 10am – 6pm, with late opening on Thursday.
Never been to a Tiger store, but my curiosity is definitely piqued – looks like a good source for all kinds of cool and / or kitschy stuff. 🙂
I visiting the one in Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow, then dragged my Mum into one in Cardiff a week later. They’re like Ikea shops for household stuff, lots of things you never needed but suddenly want (and great for Secret Santa gifts and the like).
