In April 2022, Nearby celebrated its first birthday and what a year it has been!
Since day one, Nearby’s offering has gone from strength to strength, with stores now across the entire island of Ireland. Today, the team enjoy the success of the last year and celebrate the opening of Nearby’s 100th store.
With an ambitious growth plan and great uptake from local businesses, the team have recently opened four new stores throughout Dublin, one in Meath and another in County Down.
“With ambitious plans for our symbol stores, our mission from the get-go was simple,” says brand marketing officer, Sara Fearon of Nearby’s rapid growth.
“We wanted to build a brand that would create a better shopping experience for consumers and help our retailers’ business thrive,” she adds. “Reaching the milestone of 100 stores in one year is a testament to all the hard work and dedication from our team and our retailers. We can’t wait to see what the next year brings for Nearby!”
The newest addition to the Nearby family opened on Thursday, 21 July in Creeslough, Co Donegal. Store owners, Annette, and Danny have been working with S&W Wholesale for over seven years so it’s fitting that they will be at the centre of the milestone celebrations.
To mark the big day, the store will be giving away Nearby goody bags and big prize scratch cards, all while broadcasting live on Highland Radio. Nearby Creeslough boasts all your grocery essentials, in-store butchery, hot and cold deli, wide ranging off-licence, post office, and an extensive fresh range. Shoppers can also try your luck in-store with Irish Lotto services available.
“Nearby is a unique symbol store offering as we don’t go into a business and take over – quite the opposite in fact,” says Jason McSteen, Nearby Ireland sales manager.
“We work with the owners to understand what makes their store unique, help them implement the Nearby brand and ultimately grow their business.”
