It's across from the back of the College....C.S.N...

It's still open,,but they are due to move.

They seem to be confused to where they are moving though..Each time We go in,,some say it's over by Woodies,by the old Turners Cross Motors..Others say it's by the old Woodies,where Harvey Normans is now.

Either way,until they do move,,they have very very little stock left in the place on Tramore Rd..

Hope that helps.

I think it's fair to assume that they actually have closed...

I've been checking on the Kinsale Road a number of times now, but no sign of them.
It's a crying shame, I liked the place for getting spices and other things supermarkets seem to be scared to carry, like tinned bean sprouts and bamboo shoots...

+1...

We used to go there mostly for the bags of King Prawns,as well as other stuff..

You just can't get decent size prawns anywhere else for the price they had them at...

Well,just can't get decent size prawns anywhere anymore....The ones in the supermarkets,just shrivel up when you cook them,and the guys in the market just rip you off for them.

Ahh well....Good while it lasted.

Great place for buying spices and rice or noodles in bulk (they did a lovely brown rice). Supermarket stuff doesn't compare (in price or taste). It will be missed.

If you are looking for really good chinese/asian food there is only one place to go...Jia Jia on the Coal Quay, across from the bridewell...looks like a gift shop from the out side but once you enter you realise its an asian market.

And yes they even have lanterns upstairs

According to my girlfriend who was in Great Gas today, she was told when inquiring that the CX cash and Carry will open in 2 weeks time on the old Turners Cross Motors site. Apparently planning delays held up the opening!

Great news if it's true...

Pity they could not keep people updated via their facebook page though...It doesn't take much..

Hopefully they won't have lost too many customers or business over it.

Fingers crossed +2.
