The owners of the Carlow Shopping Centre are seeking an injunction to stop its anchor tenant SuperValu from closing, as it is due to on January 22, reports the Irish Times.
Owner Thomas Thompson Holdings, along with landlord Montaya Developments and the centre’s management company, Carlow Centre Management, claims that Musgrave Group is obliged to keep the 34,000 square foot supermarket open in the terms of the original anchor tenant contract.
According to the Irish Times, the three companies are seeking a number of Commercial Court orders, including that Musgrave performs the terms of the original 1993 anchor tenancy lease to keep the premises open.
The case has been admitted to the Commercial Court list on consent between the parties by Justice Brian McGovern, who has fixed a date later this month for the hearing of an urgent application to prevent the store’s closure.
