Feb 21, 2022 | General News

Located at Greencastle Parade, Chadwicks Coolock has undergone a complete refurbishment. While enhancements have been made to the branch, customers can still expect to receive the same expert product knowledge from the team of 28 highly trained merchanting specialists.

Designed with the customer in mind
Chadwicks Coolock has been serving the needs of the local community since 1970. The new-look branch has been designed with the customer in mind and features over 1,000 new products for the trade. This includes new lines of workwear, paving displays, civil displays and an extended range of plant hire which can now be reserved online. There are also new doors, floors and bathroom showrooms showcasing the latest products from a host of well-known brands.

A new coffee station has been added allowing customers to meet and catch up while in branch. There is also a community board and a trade board in the coffee area for information on local tradespeople and events happening nearby.

To keep customers informed on market trends and industry news, Chadwicks Coolock will also be introducing a series of trade-focused mornings in the coming weeks. Customers will have the chance to talk to suppliers and discuss new product ranges and materials across a four-week period from 17th February.

Taking the lead on sustainability
A key feature of the new Coolock store is the Chadwicks ECO Centre which will provide customers with trustworthy and expert advice on the latest sustainable building products. As members of the Irish Green Building Council, Chadwicks aims to support customers in reducing their environmental impact using sustainable building solutions.
