Des Kelly Interiors has officially launched its new flagship Blanchardstown store which represents a €1 million investment as part of the group’s expansion plans. 

The landmark investment is the latest milestone for the retail group as part of its growth strategy which will see all stores in Leinster undergo extensive refurbishments and an ambition to grow its online presence by 30% over the next five years.

Sleep Zone

The new store offers a selection of engineered flooring, carpets and a dedicated Sleep Zone where customers can experience a unique Pillow Bar and benefit from the expertise of in-house sleep experts when choosing from an extensive selection of beds. 

It also offers a free In-Home Consultation Service, where it brings the showroom to customers - this ensures the customers see and feel everything Des Kelly Interiors has to offer alongside expert advice.

Family Business

While the company is synonymous nationwide with carpets, it has successfully transitioned to wider interiors in recent years to meet customer demand.

The three children of founder Des, Youlanda, Greg and Gerardo, currently run the business.

Huge Milestone

“We are delighted to launch our brand new showroom in Blanchardstown," said Youlanda Kelly, executive director, Des Kelly Interiors

"All Des Kelly Interior stores are undergoing major makeovers at the moment to ensure our business continues to evolve and stand the test of time, the store at Westend Retail Park is a huge milestone in our expansion plan journey."

Warehousing Operations

The group has recently invested significantly in modernising its warehousing operations to create a more efficient and stream-lined operating system.

The company currently employs 90 people across its 10 stores and has hired an additional 15 for its new store in Westend Retail Park, Blanchardstown.

'Four Decades'

“We look forward to welcoming new customers and our loyal long-standing customers to enjoy the wonderful features Des Kelly Interiors Blanchardstown has to offer," said Youlanda Kelly.

"We’d also like to thank the support of our staff, many of whom have been working in the business for four decades and include generations of family members.”
