Danish Retailer Sostrene Grene Set to Open in Limerick’s Bedford Row

Five new jobs are coming to Limerick as Danish retailer Sostrene Grene unveiled plans to open a new branch in the city centre.
Sostrene Grene will open its sixth store in the country of Ireland in Bedford Row at a unit occupied until earlier this year by Edinburgh Woolen Mills.
The lifestyle store specialises in home accessories, kitchenware, gift wrap, DIY articles, stationery and small furniture. It will open on Friday, September 1.
Sostrene Grene opened their first Irish store in Dun Laoghaire in 2015. With an ever-changing selection of aesthetic products displayed in pleasant subdued lighting and accompanied by the sounds of classical music, the stores give customers a therapeutic break from their busy everyday lives.
Heather and Niall Lawlor, who head the joint venture in Ireland together, say they are excited to open in the city.
“Beautiful and historic surroundings combined with a confident, urban feel in the city centre makes Limerick a perfect location for Sostrene Grene.
“The city is experiencing a rebirth these years as a key shopping destination in the Mid-West Region. We are excited to bring some Danish flavour to the buzz, and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone who wants to enjoy the Sostrene Grene experience into the store on the September 1 opening day,” Mr Lawlor said.
Company chief executive Mikkel Grene added: “We are honoured to have been so warmly welcomed by our Irish customers in our other stores so far. The Irish customers seem to like our Scandinavian design profile and the atmosphere in the stores. I am positive Limerick will be a great new addition to our collection of stores.”
