The announcement comes on the week the retailer opens its third outlet, located on Letterkenny’s Main Street, in the unit formerly operated by The Price is Right.
The company has outlets in Ballyraine, Letterkenny and in Glenties and currently employs 16 people. However, they are actively seeking six further stores which intend opening across the county this year.
The Manager of Happy Days Letterkenny, Damien McCormack said: “Our first store opened in Letterkenny in 2011 and due to its success and rapid growth we sought to acquire new space in Letterkenny as well as in other parts of the county.
“Our intention is to open six new stores this year, so we are now inviting existing or former retailers or property owners to get in contact with us from any area of the county.”
Happy Days offer a range of branded discounted products and encourage people to ‘shop with them first’. Happy Days maintain their entrance to the Donegal retail market will ensure that even more money is kept in the local economy.
Meanwhile, the opening of the Main Street outlet is seen as a vote of confidence for the area which has seen a number of high profile businesses close over the past 24 months.
Damien McCormack says that consumer behaviour has changed in that “people are now carrying out their weekly shopping in a number of outlets in order to secure best value. Our stores offer value on a broad range of branded household and consumables hence our rapid growth.”
Happy Days say they are now offering an attractive deal to business owners who want to leave their own business or who have a premises to rent. Management have indicated they would also consider taking over a petrol station offering discounted fuel.
