Argento Opens Grafton Street Store
Argento, the Irish owned jewellers with stores around Ireland and the UK, has opened a flagship store at 117 Grafton St, Dublin 2.
Property consultants Savills acted on behalf of Argento in securing the high profile 68 square metre ground and basement unit for a rent of €70,000 per annum on a 15 year lease. JLL represented the landlords.
Argento was founded in 1997 by Pete Boyle, who started his career as a jeweller at a beach stall in Donegal. Since then the business has grown to over 50 stores and is the fastest growing online jewellery store in Ireland and the UK.
According to Savills, occupancy on Grafton Street is near capacity following a recent influx of international retailers such Space.NK., Massimo Dutti and Molton Brown.
In the regions, key schemes such as the Whitewater Shopping Centre and Mahon Point are also close to full occupancy. (September 2014)
