On the back of the extended Government advice to stay indoors, which now applies to the whole of the Republic of Ireland, we will extend the previously communicated closures in Leinster and Munster to the rest of the Republic of Ireland. All stores will now be closed from 3pm today until Friday afternoon.
Regional management may make decisions to extend these closures at local level depending on the weather conditions in their area.
We would like to thank our team for the hard work they have put in over the past few days, shipping products from our warehouses and serving thousands of extra customers across the country.
As always we will continue to actively monitor the situation as it evolves with colleague and customer safety always in mind.
