Rooney’s Homevalue has officially launched its newly developed state-of-the-art super store in Kells, Co. Meath. The new store was renovated to the highest standards over a nine month period and was unveiled to customers during a very successful open weekend.
Rooney’s first opened a 2,000sq. ft. building in September 2014. In December 2016 they moved to a 16,000 sq. ft. premises which had 7,000sq.ft. of retail space but they were constantly striving for bigger and better. The significant upgrade to a modern 39,000 sq. ft. store with 19,000 sq.ft. of retail space is reflective of a strong performance across the Rooney’s Homevalue business in recent years which follows an uptake in construction activity across the Meath region.
The opening event featured numerous activities on the day with all being broadcasted by the LMFM radio roadcaster which was onsite. Commenting on the new facility, Brendan Rooney, Managing Director, Rooney’s Homevalue said, “We’re delighted to have launched
our fine new premises and it is our aim to deliver a far superior experience and service to our customers. It would not have been possible without the help and support we received from the team in United Hardware who were with us from day one and continue to help and advise today.”
The brand-new store is located within a five-minute drive of the old store, making the transition for customers very convenient. The new facility accommodates a 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse which was the main reason for the move. This ensures that they can keep
all building products under the one roof. The modern store fit out delivers a stronger customer experience with a greater focus on convenient browsing particularly in the 3,000sq. ft. dedicated home and giftware area. The high-spec store now showcases a wide range of products including light hardware, electrical, equestrian, garden and home products, along with heavy build materials such as timber and cement. It also incorporates a bathroom, floor and door showroom along with a new venture into electrical in the form of Euronics.
