Electrical giants Currys and PC World are opening in Manor West Retail Park in Tralee, Co Kerry, giving the centre 100% occupancy for the first time ever.
Centre manager Derek Rusk says he is thrilled with the achievement, which has bucked the trend.
"At a time when unemployment is at an all-time high, it is great to see new jobs being created in the Tralee area and a large multinational showing great confidence in the region," he said,
Currys and PC World will be taking up residence in the 10,000 sq ft unit.
PC World Ireland is part of DSG Retail Ireland which, together with Currys, operates 28 stores across the country and is Ireland's largest electrical retailer by turnover.
Kieran Ruttledge, of Tralee Chamber Alliance, said it is great that another international retailer has shown its confidence in the town.
"Having major retailers like Currys and PC World locate in Manor West Retail Park certainly helps bring in more shoppers to Tralee and will give people yet another reason to shop and visit the town," he said.
