    Supermacs is now open in Castlebaldwin at the petrol station. :) The shop next door has been refurbished, too. No ATM, though. :rolleyes:

    I drove by there today, it looks good.

    Vinnie McDonaghs looks to be re-opening soon.

    Not sure who will be running it though.

    Pat is reopening it next week, with a store in Sligo soon to follow

    They've had a broken ATM sitting in the shop for the last three years, I thought that they could have had it repaired/replaced while they were doing up everything else. :rolleyes:

    i wonder will this place do well out in Castlebaldwin,surely it would have done better it Sligo town.I wonder is it being run by the people who own the Petrol station?Maybe they have a franchise here.

    There is a lot of passing trade though! The McD at motorways and roads always do best, in other countries anyway.

    Had something there, on the way to Sligo one weekend...the fast food section is semi open plan with the shop. It must be one of the worst fast food places I visited in a long time. It took ages for them to get the hang of the milk shake machine, and when the shake eventually arrived it was more like milk on top and fatty sludge at the bottom. Hopefully they will sort out these problems quicker than the cash dispensing machine. And as for the fellow making burgers in front of you... The supermacs in Carrick is much better. Castlebalwin was the wrong location all right...fast food places always do better in towns and cities / on major roads through towns + cities.

    Up in the retail park today and noticed planning permission sign on INSTORE's window.

    Went over for a look and it was for Mother Care.

    Callaghan Forklifts are moving into the Changing Rooms building in Collooney, and Fenton Fires opening in Toberbride Business Park Collooney as well.

    Noticed a new chipper opening on the way into wine st carpark accross the road from the kids shop.

    I think it used to be a knock off of TK Max

    Ah yes... beside Video City?

    Do we need another chipper?! :D

    I noticed it been fitted out a few days ago, saw the counter and the layout and thought it looked like a chipper. Odd place for it, hardly going to be open late to attract the crowds after the nightclubs.

    It could do quite well from the Cinema crowds and the Clarence.

    No, it's a small store next store to Chartbusters. Think King Communications were there at one point as well.

    Pixifoto are coming to Sligo, up in the retail park I Think.


  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 35,067 Mod ✭✭✭✭AlmightyCushion


    Who are pixifoto?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,346 ✭✭✭darealtulip


    http://www.pixifoto.ie/

    these? a bit strange to put in a retailpark, i mean are the units not to big?


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


    After looking at the PixiFoto website and looking at their store locations, all their permanent studio locations are within Mothercare stores, so presuming Mothercare is granted planning permission and open up in the retail park, I presume PixiFoto will be located within the store.

    There is a new gallery opening on Market Street for Shooting Stars, it's beside David Martin hairdressers.
    I had a look at their website and they seem to do pictures of kids football and GAA matches and a few exceptions with some Aussie Rules.
