Tesco is to close its Ballymun store, due to a ‘significant decline in customer numbers over the last few years’.
Staff were informed that it will close on the 27th of April and assured that the company will work with them to find alternative jobs within the company.
Tesco said in a statement: “The decision to close the store was taken due to a number of factors – primarily, the store is located in a shopping centre that has been in decline for a number of years. Tesco is currently one of the last remaining retail tenant in the shopping centre and the overall lack of investment in the centre has resulted in a decline in the centre’s popularity with customers.”
Local Fianna Fáil Councillor Paul McAuliffe has expressed concern over the closure, telling The Journal that “neighbouring shops will now see a massive decrease in footfall” as a result of the closure.
