The centre is notable in that, as the first major shopping centre opened during the economic boom of the late 1990s, it marked the first appearance of many British ‘high street’ retailers in the Republic of Ireland.

These included Boots, Dixons, Debenhams, Next, and Argos among others, which have gone on to become major names in the main streets of Ireland.

This contrasted with existing Irish shopping centres at the time which were usually anchored by local names such as Dunnes, Roches Stores (since taken over by Debenhams), and Penneys.

Not all of the new arrivals were successes,  British Home Stores opened a store in 1996. Accordingly, having sold all of its Irish interests to Primark. However, the outlet was not a success and later sold to Heatons.
