    Receivers appointed to Clerys department store - RT News

    How many more Irish Retail Stores will be gone from our streets..how depressing. Grant Thornton are sure doing well in these times.

    Sad for the employees of course. And I know that sounds glib, but it's meant.

    While Clerys had put a huge investment into bringing it up to date etc, I think it was and always will be associated with a very mature shopper. Nothing wrong with that, but a shop that size has to appeal to a wide audience.

    I remember my mother bringing HER mother there to buy rosary beads and holy statues! The place was crawling with nuns and priests at one point too.

    Sad day. but inevitable I think. I was in there the other week. Empty.

    I can see someone like John Lewis moving in. Most jobs will be saved. Clerys couldn't reinvent themselves and spent a lot of money trying.

    Clery's was bought out of receivership by Denis Guiney in 1941.

    Back then, Craig Gardner & Co. were the receivers. Grant Thornton got the business this time around.

    Hopefully, another buyer will step in and jobs will be saved.

    I wonder if this is a pre-pack Receivership.

    The demise of Roches Stores is often spoken about in my family, young and old.

    You could get anything there from a hot water bottle to garden furniture and all the fashion in between.

    I wonder if Debenhams, who replaced Roches will last as long? I don't think the signs are all that great.
