As we return to Ireland with our first full price store in over 14 years, this expansion not only allows us to bring our latest collections closer to our customers but also underscores our commitment to growth and innovation in the retail landscape.

Sharon Walsh, Leasing Director at Falcon AM, asset managers for Blanchardstown Centre, commented: “We are extremely excited about the opening of FatFace. The new store responds directly to demand for a more diversified fashion offer from our catchment and closely follows several other great additions – such as Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Kelin and FLANNELS. We know our guests will be thrilled. Here at Blanchardstown, we are experiencing strong demand for space – reflecting the success of investment in the centre over the last few years, as well as the continued resilience of prime physical retail.”
