Irish OP retail chain opens today



26 August 2005 – Dublin (IRL): The Bizmart Group is launching its first OP hypermarket in Dublin, at the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC), today.


The 1,600 sq ft supplies and technology store is the first of the retail chain that will extend across Ireland, with six stores planned by the end of 2006.


The company’s second store, stocking office furniture and equipment, will open at the same location on 16 September. Bizmart’s office superstore will open in Sandyford, south Dublin, in mid November.


Bizmart CEO Jimmy Finn said: "Bizmart is moving away from the traditional warehouse model and moving toward a fashion driven OP retail hypermarket."
