Value department store Heatons was founded in 1946 in Athlone, Co Westmeath. Today it has grown to around 54 Heatons stores, including 10 stores across Northern Ireland.
The Heatons group is now one of Ireland’s fastest-growing department store businesses and Ireland’s third-largest non-food retailers, employing over 2,000 people.
Controversial Newcastle United boss and Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley turned his majority share in Heatons into full ownership last year.
Through SportsDirect, he has built up an enterprise with a market value of £2bn.
