12 October 2004 – Dublin (IRE): Office 1 will continue its Irish expansion this month with another seven outlets opening in the Republic to add to the existing four. The move is expected to provide the group with annual revenue of €10 million ($12.3 million).
And the franchise expects 10 more stores to come on board over the next 12 months, which will effectively double revenue. In 2003, it had disclosed plans to establish Office 1 superstores in all 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland, with four in the capital.
Office 1 has chosen Spicers Ireland as its sole distributor in the Republic for stationery and office supplies.
