Mango, one of Europe's leading fashion groups, is strengthening its presence in Ireland by returning to Cork, the country's second city, where it previously enjoyed a presence between 2004 and 2008. Specifically, the company is opening its own store in St. Patrick's Street, the city's main shopping street, in the building that previously housed the old Savoy cinema, which opened in 1932.
"Our arrival for the first time with our own company store in Cork will consolidate our brand and help us strengthen it internationally," says Daniel Lopez, Mango’s Franchise and Expansion Director.
The store, with a sales area of 360 m2, exclusively sells the Woman line and is the first in Ireland to incorporate the Mediterranean-inspired New Med concept, already present in some of the group's flagship stores around the world. This concept is intended to reflect the spirit and freshness of the brand and is strongly influenced by Mediterranean culture and style.
Sustainability and architectural integration are key to this new concept, which is why new stores feature elements such as eco-efficient lighting and temperature control, and a design which incorporates sustainable materials such as natural paint. New technologies and services have also been added to improve the customer shopping experience, such as a specific click and collect zone for the collection and return of orders; Recycling Boxes, where customers can deposit used clothing and footwear to give their garments a second life; and RFID technology for better stock control.
Mango has been present in Ireland since 1998. At the close of 2022, the company had 16 stores in the country as well as an online presence through its own online channel and other marketplaces
