Going to Kildare Village this week? Bosses urge shoppers to leave car at home and take train or bus

Kildare Village is urging customers to use public transport in a bid to reduce traffic jams at the complex. The booming retail centre saw congestion on the M7 and local routes last weekend as as hundreds of people flocked to visit the newly-expanded facility. And the attraction clearly wants to help reduce delays for shoppers with its latest advice. Kildare Village's Twitter account said: "Travelling to the Village today? Why not leave the car and relax on a bus or train?" A link is then posted to the Kildare Village website which gives details of train and bus timetables including the complimentary shuttle bus which picks up passengers at Kildare train station. Kildare Village has already switched to extended Christmas opening and will be open 9am to 9pm on every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas. A total of 35 new stores have been added to the Village in a €50m extension as well as an additional 437 parking spaces. Figures from this year (January to September) show the Village has performed even more strongly in 2015, with total sales increasing by 17.7% and the sales yield increasing by 15.8%. These results place Kildare Village amongst the best performing of the nine Villages across Europe that are operated by Value Retail.
