Pet retailer Maxi Zoo is planning to create 50 new employment positions, the company has announced.
The company, which currently has stores in Limerick, Longford, Dublin, Wicklow and Cork, is planning to open two new shops over the coming months, bringing its total number of outlets in Ireland to 11.
Darren Spoonley, Maxi Zoo's head of sales in Ireland, said the new jobs will be located across the country.
"Whilst the new stores will be located in Maynooth and Dublin, a variety of positions across all levels are available nationwide," he said.
The company is still hoping to open further shops in the future, Mr Spoonley added.
"Due to continued market demand we are always on the look out for new store locations," he noted.
The news comes as the Sunday Business Post reported that US retailer Abercrombie & Fitch will create up to 300 jobs in Dublin when it opens a new store in the capital this year.
