Halfords coming to Galway

Halfords is coming to Galway.
A new store will be opening in Headford Road retail park.
I am looking forward to it.

That's the Galway Retail Park.

Galway Shopping Centre is on the other side of the road.

Don't know of any area called Headford Rd Retail Park, go I'd guess it's the Galway RP they're referring to.

Job ads on the FAS website, BTW.

Halfords is a bit 'meh' in my opinion, but if it brings some employment then that's great.

Good to see new jobs in the wesht.

Halfords are OK....By that I mean the stuff they stock (bikes and car accessories) are needed locally and they do run discounts regularly...

In general though the markup is steep(but this applies to most stores where the price is directly proportional to the overheads)

...keep an eye on their bargain alerts.

Was suppose to happen 4 years ago.
I'll probably have a look but keep buying from the usual places anyway.

Does anyone have a link or is it just a rumour again?

I know the unit under the Marriott is being fitted out but I thought it was for a furniture place moving from across town.

Maybe where chartbusters used to be?

I'd say the Marriott is exactly where their store will be and not the Galway Retail Park.
