Golden Discs are proud to announce the opening of their new store this Saturday 17th June, at 34 Cruises Street in the heart of Limerick City. This continues the unprecedented expansion of the store following on from the hugely successful openings of The Vinyl Lounge in Cork and their biggest store to date at Dundrum Town Centre in Dublin.
Golden Discs previously had outlets in Arthurs Quay, Crescent and Jetland Shopping Centres, and before that were located at Todds, (now Brown Thomas). After an eight-year absence, they will take prime position on the main pedestrian shopping street in the city, and to celebrate, this weekend the store will have special discounts across various product lines.
Limerick has a strong musical heritage, with renowned artists including The Cranberries, Hermitage Green and this year’s Choice Music Prize winners, The Rusangano Family all hailing from the city. Golden Discs will support local artists by hosting instore gigs and appearances, starting this month with Anna’s Anchor at 3 pm on Saturday 24th June. Anna’s Anchor recently released their new single ‘Summer Camp’ from their debut album release Nautical Mile which will be on sale instore.
Golden Discs have been synonymous with musical and home entertainment offerings in Ireland since 1962. The store in Limerick will carry an extensive range of music and the latest films and TV boxsets, as well as a full range of accessories. They will also specialise in vinyl, with a wide range of catalogue titles and all the new releases.
Stephen Fitzgerald, CEO of Golden Discs, said, ‘We are thrilled to return to the city and are looking forward to once again being part of the thriving and vibrant Limerick music scene.’
Golden Discs will be recruiting part-time staff to join the Limerick store, so they’re calling on music obsessives and film buffs to please pop into Cruises Street with your CV and meet the team!
