“We now have exclusive plans to roll them (Grafton Barber stores) in Dunnes Stores nationwide and the vision of the team at Dunnes is light-years away from any competition,” said Hugh McAllister (Jr) at the opening of the first store earlier this month. “(Dunnes Stores) provides the highest quality services from brands that are leaders in their game under one roof at an affordable price. Both Conor and I are forever grateful.”
