"We Need To Do Everything Possible To Preserve Vulnerable Businesses," Says Retail Ireland

In light of the closures of flagship brands yesterday across Ireland such as Retail Ireland such as Arnotts, Brown Thomas and Penneys, Arnold Dillon Director of Retail Ireland has said that "we need to do everything possible to preserve vulnerable businesses."

In a statement, the Ibec representative body for the retail sector in Ireland has called for emergency support for the retail sector which is being devastated by closures and mass layoffs due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dillion highlighted that "there are significant issues to be addressed by Government both in terms of support for job losses and for businesses."

"The State must continue to look at cash-flow and forbearance measures," he said and to "adjust supports which can help preserve as many retailers as possible through the crisis period.”
