Giant Store Dublin has opened for business – Giant’s eleventh brand store – situated on Longmile Road, a main artery to the South West of the capital, within easy reach of the famous city.

The store – Giant’s first in the Republic of Ireland – occupies around 255m2 of retail space and hopes to position itself as an integral part of the local cycling community.

Located in the Cities’ EP Mooney Retail Centre, the store is close to the City Centre for commuters and the surrounding Leinster countryside for scenic riders. A full range of performance and lifestyle bikes is being stocked as well as a huge selection of Giant cycling gear. Featuring modern servicing facilities the store actively encourages consumers to try before they buy through a demo service and has a comfy seating area with Giant TV so customers can relax while they wait.
