Eleven retailers have been awarded funding from Enterprise Ireland’s online retail scheme, and will receive between €10,000 and €25,000 each to strengthen their online offering.

The purpose of the scheme is to assist retailers to improve their online sales capabilities, to increase competitiveness, and later to scale their businesses, particularly in international markets.

In the first call on the €1.25m fund, EI will distribute €625,000 among the eleven successful applicants, which are:

  • Golden Disc Group, Dublin
  • Kilkenny Group, Dublin
  • Inish Health (Muff), Donegal
  • House of Ireland, Dublin
  • Carrolls Irish Gifts, Dublin
  • Great Outdoors, Dublin
  • Arboretum,  Carlow (pictured)
  • CH Marine, Cork
  • Star Schools Supplies, Dublin
  • O’Sullivan Safety, Dublin
  • Rathwood, Carlow.

Companies applying under the scheme must be an Irish-owned small or medium retail enterprise that has the potential to create jobs, generate growth in sales and internationalise the business.

They must also have an existing e-commerce presence (such as a website or social media); have a retail outlet from which they derive most revenue; and must employ at least 20 full-time employees .
