Plus-size retailer Yours Clothing will open its first store in Ireland later this week, at Dublin shopping centre The Square.
The standalone, which will be its first owned store outside of the UK, measures 4,700 sq ft.
It will stock its womenswear clothing, lingerie, footwear and accessories lines as well as the full range of its sister menswear brand Bad Rhino, which caters for big and tall men in sizes L to 8XL.
Yours Clothing said it is “actively looking” for additional stores across southern Ireland, with plans in place to open another two this year.
It intends to open more than 35 new stores altogether in 2018.
Resh Dorka, chief operating officer of Yours Clothing, said the decision to open in Dublin came on the back of demand from online shoppers.
Yours Clothing operates 131 stores throughout the UK and a further 12 franchises internationally. It also ships to more than 90 countries.
