Halfords to open store in Dublin; some oppose the move

The 400-store retailer is to open a 1000 sq metre store in the Belgard Retail Park in 2004. However, in 2001 the Irish government published retail guidelines which were meant to restrict the opening of warehouse-style sheds in Ireland. The Dublin Chamber of Commerce is calling for a change in the rules to allow other chainstores to open in Ireland.
Publish date:

The Halfords store meets the current guidelines as it is smaller than 6000 sq metres.

The Dublin Chamber of Commerce believes the entry of shed retailers "would help to attract new entrants into retailing, stimulating competition and lowering prices."
