What do you think makes Kilkenny a great place to do business? This is a hard question to answer, not because it is difficult to come up with a reason why Kilkenny is a great place to do business but because there are so many things about Kilkenny that are great. Our geographical location and roads network make us so accessible from all parts of the country. There are no shortage of business premises available in Kilkenny, large and small, old and new, there are a variety of sites to meet the needs of any business. The new Abbey Quarter currently under construction in the heart of the City will provide even more space and opportunity for Kilkenny businesses.
We have a proven track record in attracting high profile businesses such as Glanbia, Taxback, State Street plus many more.
The above a just some reasons that spring to mind when I think of what makes Kilkenny a great place to do business in, but for me it must be the people and the city itself. Not only is there a huge talent pool to draw people from, but there is a fantastic sense of community and pride in the city. I firmly believe that a business is only as good as the people that work in it.
The City is steeped in history, with an abundance of sporting and leisure amenities and activities. There is a European City feel to our streets during the summer months as tourist from home and abroad flock to sample the unique culture, our many festivals and hospitality that Kilkenny has to offer. I love the quote, “Kilkenny is the place where people come not only to make a living but to make a life.”
Over the last year how has business been for you… We are no different to any other business; the last year has thrown up more obstacles than opportunities. Whilst we remained open and continued to provide the same service to customers that required it, the closure of hospitality during lockdowns has impacted on our business but it has also given us a chance to make improvements in store and train staff, examine and improve our product range. With the country and businesses starting to reopen in the coming weeks, I believe Value Centre Kilkenny are now better placed than ever to meet the needs of new and existing customers.
What is your favourite thing to do or see in Kilkenny… I think lock down has given us all a greater appreciation for what we have on our own doorstep. Over the past year or so I have really enjoyed becoming reacquainted with my surrounding and bringing my own two daughters to places I frequented in my own childhood. We really are blessed to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world. I hope and believe that as the country reopens, our local communities will support local businesses in a safe manner, I certainly look forward to the day when I can go into town for a meal with my wife, or right all the wrongs of the world, with friends in my local.
