John Lewis will launch in Ireland for the first time through an exclusive deal with Dublin department store Arnotts.
The retailer will occupy 2,000 sq ft of retail space in the Arnotts store from October to sell 700 products from John Lewis’ home range. It will also sell the collection online.
It is not yet known if the deal will extend to fashion in the future but the Irish retailer confirmed that other brands will be introduced later this year.
Donald McDonald, managing director of Arnotts, said: “The new range will enhance Arnotts existing position as the largest and only full line department store in Ireland. We look forward to introducing other exciting new brands to Arnotts over the coming months.”
