There is great news today, both for shopaholics and job seekers.
Kildare Village Shopping Centre is set to expand, creating a minimum of 120 construction jobs and a further 380 retail positions. When the expansion is complete, the total number of staff at the site will be about 1,000.
Value Retail, developer and operator of the Village, are investing upwards of €50m in this expansion, which will see the creation of 36 new boutiques, two restaurants, and a brand new visitor centre.
Kildare Village had over 2.3m visitors in 2013, both from domestic and international markets like China, Middle East, Australia, and Malaysia.
