French retailer to set up in Dundalk

RTE report that retail ghost town Dundalk is to become the UK and Ireland headquarters for a French online retailer, CDiscount. CDiscount’s arrival doesn’t involve the creation of a superstore that will wow the shoppers back from neighbouring retail boom-town Newry, however it will involve the creation of 50 high-end jobs.
