Brendan Kerrigan of “The Pen Place” discusses reopening his business after the lockdown.

July 9, 2020

In this episode we talk to the owner of one of Dún Laoghaire's very unique small businesses - The Pen Place - at the top of the Dún Laoghaire shopping centre. Brendan Kerrigan runs a mecca for lovers of great pens and great inks in a tiny space sought out by everyone from rockstars to High Court judges. The business has survived the retail crisis that has affected the town - proving that great customer service, consistent high quality offerings and an owner with a passion for his work can overcome even a global pandemic. This podcast was recorded virtually via Zoom - Brendan on his Android phone and Aileen on her iPad attached to a Shure MV88 stereo microphone and a soundwall on her kitchen table, all done live on a BNI Forty Foot chapter meeting.
