DESPITE a tough few years Keanes Jewellers in Limerick are obviously looking to the future with a €500k investment in their Limerick store opening to the public on Friday, November 21.
Keanes, who opened their Limerick store in O’Connell St 12 years ago, have also announced that the completely refurbished store is now part of an elite group of retailers in the world to house a Rolex boutique with the latest Geneva led design specifications.
Shop owner, Patrick Keane, said the watch gallery staff at Keanes Jewellers had been preparing for the Rolex investment for many months with training seminars and workshops undertaken at Rolex’s London based offices.
The store has also included three additional private viewing rooms dedicated to diamond rings prompting Mr Keane to boast that newly engaged couples choosing a ring can enjoy an experience in Limerick to rival that of international players such as Tiffany’s or Cartier.
The refurbishment saw the creation of over 40 jobs during the build.
Mr Keane concluded: "Our business was first established by my grandparents in 1948 and it has grown to include our three stores in Cork, Limerick and Killarney. We have experienced a number of tough trading years but our customers have remained loyal and we are very positive about our future in Limerick."
