Irish Family-Owned Business DID Opens Brand New Cork Store

An Irish-owned family business is taking care of all the southside’s homeware and gadget needs, with DID Electrical opening a brand new flagship store in Cork.

Cutting the ribbon this morning, the new store spans over 10,000 square feet of Turners Cross Retail Park, with the new shop being the second in Cork, joining its other branch in Bandon. Opened in 1968, DID Electrical started off in Mountjoy Square, growing exponentially to where there are now with 23 stores nationwide and over 4,00 staff members.

Celebrating the opening of their latest store was Munster Rugby Player, Niall Scannell and Lord Mayor of Cork, Deirdre Forde, who cut the ribbon alongside managing director of DID, Ken Fox.

Speaking at the opening, Lord Mayor Deirdre Forde said, “the population of Cork is expected to grow in the next year, so it’s the perfect time to open a second store in the city. It’s fantastic to see an Irish brand such as DID provide job opportunities in the local community.”

Ken Fox, Managing Director at DID Electrical, accompanied by the new staff members and store manager Vincent Hayes welcomed local customers hoping to get a first look on the store’s brand-new offerings.

Addressing the staff and guests, Ken Fox said, “DID are delighted to open a second store in Cork giving us the opportunity to create jobs in the local area. It’s an exciting time as we continue to grow our brick-and-mortar footprint in Ireland. We’re looking forward to welcoming new customers to a great in-store experience and to shop for the biggest brands we’re famous for at the best prices.”
