Manor West Marks 20 Years with the Announcement of 100 New Jobs

Manor West Retail Park, the premier retail destination in the South West of Ireland celebrated its 20th anniversary on Saturday, 23rd October. The Retail Park, which is home to popular retailers including TK Maxx, Next, Lifestyle, Woodies, Harvey Norman and many more, has much to celebrate as it reflects on the past 20 years and looks towards the future. With lots of exciting developments underway, including the creation of over 100 new jobs with the opening of The Range on Friday, 22nd October, and with JYSK and MaxiZoo opening soon after, Manor West Retail Park continues to thrive as one of Munster’s premier retail destinations.


Employing over 700 people, Manor West Retail Park has played a vital role in Tralee and surrounding towns and villages, not only as a retail destination for consumers and by providing employment opportunities, but also as a real community hub. For the past 20 years, Manor West Retail Park has really been at the heart of this community from its Food and Craft Fairs, providing entrepreneurs with a fantastic platform to showcase their wonderful products to their Charity showcase days to help raise awareness and funds for much loved local charities.


2021 is a milestone year for Manor West Retail Park as it will see the addition of several major retailers opening their doors in Tralee. New store openings include the UK’s fastest growing retailer The Range, opening soon are the giant Danish retailer, JYSK, pet products retailer MaxiZoo and exciting new additions to the onsite restaurant facilities, with more details to be announced shortly. The growth of Manor West through these difficult times to nearly 100% capacity is a testament to centre manager Derek Rusk, who has been at the helm of the organisation since it first opened its doors in 2001.


Commenting on the 20th anniversary of Manor West Retail Park, Centre Manager Derek Rusk said “It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the doors of Manor West opened here in Tralee. As we celebrate this milestone, we also look forward to the future with new tenants and 100 new jobs for Tralee, as well as new and exciting shopping experiences for the people of Kerry and beyond. We are very grateful for the continued support of customers, throughout the past 20 years and in particular through the difficult Covid period.


Derek continued, “Over the years, Manor West has been a key driver in employment but also in creating a sense of community and we are very proud of the vibrant retail destination that stands in front of us today. We are looking forward to the next 20 years and the exciting times ahead for Manor West Retail Park.”
