The online shopping giant is the perfect home for many of the most coveted properties in Dublin, the Irish capital, with listings ranging from classic Victorian apartments to luxury villas to a stunning new waterfront property.
The online store is owned by Amazon Ireland, and has more than 2,500 listings across the country, with the vast majority of them in Dublin and the surrounding region.
It’s been a long time coming for the online retail giant, which started out as a garage sale and then a bookseller, but now has a loyal following and has a long list of properties in its sights.
Amazon Ireland CEO Peter Kelly said that the company was looking to move away from traditional bookselling and to build its own retail operations to meet demand.
“We’ve always had a big desire to develop our own brand and to create a business in this space,” he said.
We’re about delivering the service, the product, the service and the service delivery.” “
It’s not about making a profit or making money.
We’re about delivering the service, the product, the service and the service delivery.”
Online shopping and e-commerce have been hugely popular in Ireland, with a population of roughly 8.6 million, but this year sales have slowed to just over 5 million, according to the country’s census.
The boom in online shopping has been driven by demand for home decor, travel, sports and travel equipment.
Amazon has also been expanding its physical presence in the country with more than 70 retail locations around the country.
Kelly said that Amazon Ireland is now focused on creating a “smart retail” business, where its employees are trained to operate in an “innovation-driven environment”.
“In this space we are focused on a range of retail strategies, from digital, to retail online, to physical and now to e-retail,” he explained.
“The challenge is in the middle – how do you build and maintain the loyalty of a huge customer base?”
Amazon Ireland is also investing in new retail spaces across the city, with plans to create more than 1,000 new retail shops.
This includes opening a new flagship store in Dublin’s south-west, which will open later this year.
More: Amazon.com said it would invest more than €20 million ($26.3 million) in new spaces in the city over the next two years, with more to come.
However, the company has also opened a new website in the capital which will provide a direct link to its home-delivery service and will offer shoppers a range to choose from, including new products and service categories.
