30 Sep2016 Home roots opening in Monaghan
Last week marked a special opening for me. Having been part of the Insomnia team for the past 10 years, it was great to open our first store in my hometown of Monaghan. This is also our first store in Ulster.
I grew up in Monaghan town and went to school in Beech Hill Collge - It was lovely to see students from the school queing up for hot chocolate, which brought back some fond memories of my time there.
Fellow Monaghan native and former Monaghan Harps player Diane Rudden is the Regional Manager for the store. She too was excited about the opening, and proud to introduce our coffee to her friends and family. Diane has been with Insomnia for 12 years now.
We were overwhelmed with the support of local businesses and espically the Monaghan Town Shopping Centre management. This was one of the busiest opening days we've had! It was great meeting some old friends and seeing some familar faces. I was lucky that my Mum also came down to pay a visit, who shared a coffee with her neighbour.
The store itself provides a spacious and cosy seating area, offering customers a chance to unwind after a long day’s shopping in the centre. It has a contemporary feel, ample seating options and decor to match to enhance customer's shopping experience.
