‘‘Arnotts thinks big with new ‘youth’ store’’

Deirdre McQuillian
Fashion Editor

The Brief:

  • Deliver a lifestyle department store aimed at the style conscious.

  • Save 40% of the agreed capital budget.

  • Develop proposition and open first stage in 17 weeks.

The Results:

  • Hailed as the best ever store launch in Dublin.

  • 40% saving achieved as well as handing back all the contingency.

  • Shopfit cost less than 33 Euros per square foot.

‘Most people think of Arnotts as a classic, traditional department store. This store is different. There are less prominent brand fixtures, art hangs on the walls and we commissioned a graffiti artist. Its fun, which people need right now.’’
