Huge queues at Grand Opening of new superstore, The Range, in Liffey Valley on Friday.

After months of anticipation the day finally arrived for Liffey Valley’s newest superstore, The Range, to open its doors. The launch took place at 9am Friday 19th of May at The Retail Park, Liffey Valley in front of a huge queue of eager customers. The store was officially opened by the Mayor of South Dublin, Guss O’Connell. He was joined for the celebrations by owner and founder of The Range, Chris Dawson. The crowd was overflowing with excitement and the ribbon cutting was met with smiles and applause.

Enthusiastic customers queued from 7pm the day before to secure their star prize of a Lay-Z-Spa Paris hot tub with others joining them to receive a runner up prize. They all could not wait to enter the store and discover the great variety of products that The Range has to offer.

Friendly staff were joined by Captain Range, the company’s own mascot and Livvie the Bear from The Retail Park, to welcome customers to the store. Once open, shoppers packed inside their new store to find themselves some fantastic bargains.

The Liffey Valley store has an extensive Homewares department, as well as large DIY, Arts & Crafts and a spacious outdoor garden centre. There is also a large seasonal area offering a vast selection of luxury garden furniture, barbeques and solar lighting. There are some fantastic opening offers running across all departments until 4th June with many exclusive bargains available.

Dublin’s 98 FM promo team, the Thunder, were in-store to entertain the crowds in their fun zone with goody bags and face painting. The celebrations are set to continue over the weekend with free face painting by Snazaroo taking place at the new store on Saturday 20th May and a free Trimcraft demo in-store on Sunday 21st May.

Devon-based entrepreneur, Chris Dawson commented on the opening: “Opening a new store is always a proud moment for the company and it is great to continue with our overseas expansion so close to Dublin. It was great to have so many people turn up to celebrate our opening this morning and we hope all our customers managed to find themselves some fantastic bargains. We would like to thank the council and The Retail Park for all of their support in welcoming us to Liffey Valley”.
