    OK here's my attempt to be positive:)... from the weekender website:

    Good news for Sligo shoppers

    THREE major high street UK retailers could be coming to Johnston Court Shopping Centre, Sligo in the coming months.

    Advanced talks are underway between Johnston Court management and the three top UK stores.

    “We are talking to some major players on the UK High Street. Though we can’t say who they are just yet. These retailers will all be excellent news for Sligo shoppers,” said a spokesperson for Johnston’s Court.

    Meanwhile the Sony Centre in Johnston Court has shut but is due to reopen again in five weeks time under a new franchisee.

    “Sony Ireland are very much committed to Sligo and to Johnston’s Court and will be relaunching the existing store under new management in the coming weeks.”

    Pulse Accessories, located at High Street Sligo are to close their High Street unit and will instead reopen a bigger Pulse Accessories unit at Johnson’s Court.

    Tom Tailor the German casual clothing brand, has closed all of its Irish shops including its store at Johnston’s Court, Sligo.

    The brand’s Irish stores are part of the Ark Retail group, which has gone into liquidation.

    Does anyone know what supermarket will be opening in the quayside? there are sign saying somthing about that. Hope it will be M&S for you magnumlady;) for me I hope it is supervalue or even a aldi!!

    ps jabby you already have 63 viewings!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,638 ✭✭✭ magnumlady


    I reckon it'll be a supervalu in the Quayside.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,797 ✭✭✭ bobcar61


    I'd say a SuperValu or Centra or something along those lines. Would also love a M&S in Sligo, it would bring so much more to the town as a lot of people seem to go to a town with M&S in it.

    What is Sligo Freeze Chill, a place selling white goods?

    I was baffled when I saw a sign saying Supermacs was opening in Castlebaldwin when I was driving through it a few days ago. I'm sure it will do well :)

    It's a storage/collection depot for frozen products and a major distribution point. The building is gi-normous, with 8 loading bays for Haulage.

    It won't be Aldi, they don't do shopping centre units. I've heard it's supposed to be M&S, but havn't heard any timeframe

    Id be sooo happy if they open Mars and Spencer in Johnston Court! That would make my day!:D But otherwise there is not enough car parking spaces! Like today... I wanted to go and do some shopping in Tesco and town in general! You could not get a space at all which really pisses me off!:mad:

    It's a big fridge... they will use it to transport and store frozen foods in between journeys I'm sure ... not open to public.

    Supermacs .... good idea I think...food on the run.

    Thanks Culchie.....shame it's not open to the public.

    No she was printing up menus for tonights opening.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,797 ✭✭✭ bobcar61


    There is a new place opening in Strandhill where Triskel was beside the Jade Garden Chinese above the Strand bar.
    I think it's a seafood/steakhouse restaurant. Do you know what was on the menu AlmightyCushion?

    Not a notion. I didn't even wish her luck with it, I felt a bit of a bastard when I realised that. It's only because I was hungover though. In case you're reading this printer lady who is opening a new restaurant tonight, best of luck with it.

    Apparently Kevin the former manager of Instore said they were hoping to come back to Sligo to a different location, also Cost plus sofas are coming at the end of July and also Heatons are meant to be opening in Castle street.

    How long ago did we hear the rumour of Heatons on Castle Street, although it has not been mentioned in a long time. Now that the development there is taking shape it might just happen....lets hope it does :)

    Where are Cost plus sofas meant to be opening?

    Im not sure where Cost plus are going, but when they opened in Carrickmines they took over the old Classic Furniture shop. Some department store are advertising for staff for their new store in Sligo and I think its meant to be Heatons.
