ARGOS HAS ANNOUNCES that it will be creating 30 new jobs for Tipperary with the opening of a new store.
The new shop will open at the Showgrounds Shopping Centre in Clonmel on 5 March next. The UK company has been in Ireland for 15 years now, and the Clonmel store will be their 40th branch here.
A spokesperson from Argos said that the company had received 1,500 applications for the 30 jobs in the Co Tipperary store and the positions had all been filled.
The news comes as Enda Kenny launched Fine Gael’s Five Point Plan today which they claim will “create jobs, reform the health system, fix the budget crisis, make Government smaller and more cost effective and put the burden on politicians first”.
Labour’s Eamon Gilmore also said this morning that jobs creation was a main anchor of his party’s campaign for government.
