A new Irish retailer has opened a store in Dublin as part of its plan to bring down the cost of clothing online.
A group of men’s clothing brands have partnered with Aldera to open a new online store in the city, with the aim of increasing the supply of affordable clothing in Ireland.
The new online shop will cater for all tastes and will sell a range of clothing items, including men’s and women’s clothing, plus size clothing and more.

Alderayas chief executive, Michael Walsh, said that the aim was to offer a better value for money for people in rural areas.
“We think we can provide a great service for people,” he said.
“I think that it is good for the country.”
It will create jobs, and it will create more income for the local economy.
“Aldera is the third Irish retailer to enter the Irish online retail market, following retailers including Gieves & Stoughton and the online clothing retailer Nordstrom.
Online retail has seen a rise in demand for items, particularly men’s clothes, with more than 2.5 million people shopping online in 2017.
Online shopping has also been popular in Europe, with Nordstrom taking the lead in the US.
The majority of Irish shoppers are women, but there are also many men in the market, who prefer to buy clothing online and not at the physical store.
Online retailers such as Alderasse, Nordstrom and Gieves&Stoughton have been successful in the Irish market in recent years, but sales have not yet picked up in the UK, where online retailers have been the dominant players.

The trend is still very much alive and well in the country, with one study saying that online sales increased by nearly 50 per cent in 2016.
Alderas chief executives have previously said that online shopping is the way to go in the future.”
The biggest challenge for us is that the supply chain is not going to get better.
We are in the process of building a new supply chain and the logistics are not there yet,” he told the Irish Times in 2017, as part, of his plan to provide a better price to the consumer.
We have to think about what will be the next stage, what will the next wave be?,” Mr Walsh said.
