First Concept Store Opening at Grafton Street

First Concept Store Opening at Grafton Street

Kristin Kennedy-Brown - February 02, 2024

We're thrilled to announce the opening of our first ever Castore concept store in Grafton Street, Ireland today. The Grafton Street store opening marks the next stage of our growth journey - representing our relentless pursuit of innovation.

We are set to grow a portfolio of bespoke, upscale flagship stores with the first of its kind to debuting on Grafton Street, Dublin this week.

We already have a vast brand presence in Ireland, standing proudly as the official kit supplier to both the Irish women’s and men’s football teams, as well as Leinster rugby - and our concept store opening further expands this. Our new concept store will be situated in one of Europe’s busiest shopping streets - Grafton Buildings at 34 Grafton Street - joining other fashion retailers such as Jigsaw and Sweaty Betty.

The space occupies a total of 1690 square feet across two levels, featuring teamwear from Leinster, FAI, McLaren, and Redbull, alongside mainline stock including the Light collection and recent Reiss x Castore SS24 collaboration.

The store serves as a touchpoint for us, offering both new and existing customers the chance to experience first-hand how each product is designed for optimal performance, with a focus on incorporating genuine experiences into the craftsmanship.

Will Clarke, Chief Merchandising and Operating Officer, said: “As part of our growth expansion, we are thrilled to be opening on our first concept store in Grafton Street – this offers a physical platform to showcase our products in an interactive way.

“It’s a very exciting time for Castore, as we’re determined to continue this growth trajectory and position the brand as a key player in the retail sports market.”
