Celebrating 21 Years in Business, 2000-2021

Costcutter Ireland is celebrating 21 years in business this year. To celebrate, we have put together some of our key moments from the past 21 years.

A Milestone Beginning: The First Store in 2000

Costcutter Ireland proudly marks 21 years in business this year. Our journey began in 2000 with the first store established by parent company Barry Group – Shay Doherty’s Costcutter in Whitehall, Dublin. Remarkably, by the end of that year, the Costcutter family had grown to 22 stores nationwide.
