When Tom Keogh worked as a manager with Dunnes Stores in the 1980s, the company's stores opened at 9am and closed at 6pm. “We'd be out by 6.05 in those days,” said Keogh.
Nowadays, things have changed. Keogh is chief executive of Gala Retail Services, one of the country's fastest-growing symbol groups. Most of the group's nationwide network of convenience stores open at 7am and the majority are still open at 10 o'clock at night.
