Almost eight years after pulling out of Ireland, Jigsaw is looking to re-enter the market with a new retail store in Dublin.
The high-end high street retailer used to trade out of 42 Grafton Street in Dublin before the brand opted to sell its lease at the height on the property boom to fashion retailer Ted Baker, and now the British chain is ready to return after a securing a unit on South Anne Street in the Irish capital.
Jigsaw has acquired a 860 square foot store in the Grafton Building on South Anne Street, situated near TM Lewin and Timberland, and will pay around 100,000 euros per annum, according to the Irish Times.
BNP Paribas Real Estate acted for the landlord of the South Anne Street premises, while London-based Orme Retail advised Jigsaw.
During its absence Jigsaw had been available to Irish customers via its website and a concession inside Arnotts department store. No date has been given on when the Dublin store will open.
Jigsaw has more than 40 stores in the UK, as well as international units in the US, Australia, South Africa, and the UAE.
