Castore opens new concept store in Dublin
Sportswear brand Castore has opened a new flagship concept store on Dublin’s Grafton Street.
The space at Grafton Buildings at 34 Grafton Street occupies a total of 1,690 square feet across two levels and stocks teamwear from Leinster, FAI, McLaren, and Red Bull, alongside mainline stock including the Light collection and recent Reiss x Castore SS24 collaboration.
The shop is close to other fashion fashion retailers including Jigsaw and Sweaty Betty.
With the brand being the official kit supplier to the Irish women’s and men’s football teams, as well as Leinster rugby, the store serves as a touchpoint for Castore, offering both new and existing customers the chance to experience first-hand how each product is designed and crafted for optimal performance.
Castore is set to roll out a further 24 stores across the UK in the coming year while updating its current portfolio with the new design.
Will Clarke, castore 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.”
Founded by Liverpool-born brothers Phil and Tom Beahon in 2015, Castore is based in Manchester.
