Pretty in pink to celebrate the Giro d'Italia
As Dundalk town excitedly welcomed the 97th Giro d’Italia last weekend, Specsavers Dundalk celebrated by dressing the store in pink, similar to the famous Maglia Rosa - the leader's pink jersey.
Despite the rain pouring down outside, the moods weren’t dampened in store as staff organised a children’s colouring competition to celebrate one of the world’s most famous cycle races passing through the town.
According to Specsavers Dundalk store director Martina Kelly, 'We had a fantastic day in store celebrating this historic race passing through Dundalk town. We decorated the store in pink bunting and balloons and everyone’s spirits were high for this once in a life time event.'
The Giro d'Italia is one of the most well-known and prestigious Grand Tours in the world.
