Luxury retail company Brown Thomas will employ 400 new staff in a new store in Dundrum, Dublin. The new 62,000 square foot store, which opened in late February 2022 following a €12 million investment and refit, will be used as the “launch pad” for a range of new services across the Brown Thomas group. At the launch of the new store, the Brown Thomas group said it has recruited 400 staff for the new site, including 220 full time roles. The recruitment started in October and staff were trained at its other outlets.

The group employs nearly 1,000 employees. Brown Thomas and Arnotts will soon be acquired by a Thai and Austrian joint venture as part of the €4.7 billion sale of the Selfridges Group.
