Office 1 pushes ahead with expansion in Ireland

Office 1 is continuing its Irish expansion as another seven outlets in the Republic signed up last month to add to the existing four. The move is expected to provide the group with annual revenue of 110 million ($12.3 million).

The franchise expects ten more stores to come on board over the next 12 months, which will effectively double revenues. 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.
