Have you ever woken up one morning and said to yourself, "I need more rubber ducks in my life". If so, then it's your ducky day.

Killarney Duck Store is to officially open its doors on High Street this week and the people behind the new store have been busy stocking the shelves with an unimaginable assortment of ducks.

From classy ducks in tuxedos to star wars inspired ducks, they've got it all. They even have a section for duck enthusiasts who believe in fashion-forward feathered friends and Fashionista ducks wearing mini sunglasses and tiny feather boas.

The store's grand opening is due to take place on July 8 with a ribbon cutting at 10am.

Free Killarney Duck Store Tote bags will be given out to the first 20 customers and there will be a free raffle entry for every customer for a chance to win a Giant Duck.

Balloons, Cupcakes and loads of rubber ducks promises to have locals and visitors ‘quacking’ up with laughter.

The new business owner Elaine Burke would be known locally for running BE Pro Therapy, a successful Physical Therapy & Osteopathy business in town

Speaking to the Killarney Advertiser this week Elaine said the idea was first ‘floated’ while on holidays in Italy in February of this year.

“My kids begged me to go into a duck store in Milan and once in the store I was hooked! We bought some ducks and after we walked out of the store I said to them that is was a good business idea and its steamrolled from there,” she said.

“This store is because of my kids and for my kids and they have worked incredibly hard helping me get it up and running and we are delighted to share a little quackiness with everyone who walks in our doors"

The store is certainly going to add a ‘splash’ of colour and fun to High St. which is already one of the towns busiest thoroughfares.

So, whether you're a collector, a duck aficionado, or just need a little quack-me-up, make sure you waddle on down to the The Killarney Duck store on Saturday.
