Letterkenny Retail Park and Riverside Retail Park are retail parks on the Paddy Harte/Link Road in central Letterkenny, County Donegal. The largest retail parks in the county,[1] they have come out as the best nationwide in terms of rent versus footfall.[2]

Phase two of the retail park was developed by Patrick J. Doherty.[3]

History[edit]

Phase 1[edit]

Phase 1 opened with Atlantic Homecare, Toymaster, The Jean Scene, Elverys Sports, Lidl and Harry Corry. Elverys Sports relocated to the Letterkenny Town Centre complex in early 2007.

Phase 2[edit]

Phase 2 construction finished by 2005 and it consisted of many units which would be used for fashion outlets. Stores such as Next, New Look, Tempest, TK Maxx and also Argos, SuperValu and Right Price Tiles. Marks and Spencer and Menarys Department Store opened on 30 May and 25 May 2007 respectively. This is M&S's first store in the North-West of Ireland. Due to the current economic troubles SuperValu was forced to close on 6 January 2009.[4]

On 1 March 2012, KPMG was appointed as receiver to Letterkenny Retail park by Bank of Ireland.

Riverside Retail Park[edit]

Construction of the Riverside Retail Park commenced in 2006. It has a total of 10 retail units. The first store opened in this phase was an exclusive ladies fashion clothing store, called Wardrobe followed by Donegal Sports and Sony Centre. The Shoe Boutique opened at Unit 9, right next door to Wardrobe and they complement each other perfectly.
