Castlebar's Potential Discount Disaster

Posted by Joe on September 24, 2016 at 15:11:28:

With Dealz opening up in the old Flannelys premises we will soon have 6 discount stores within a minute of each other, add in Mr Price and the two discount clothes stores that have opened and others on the outskirts of town it should be a worrying trend.

This trend has happened in a large amount of UK city centres over the last 10 years and ended up decimating them as it lead to nothing but discount stores, bookies, slot machine/gambling venues as well as loan and pawn shops opening, while well known high street retailers moved to retail parks.and avoided the centres like the plague.

While these stores do provide employment, they are all low skilled, low paid jobs with a high amount of job turnover and the use of the dreaded zero hour contracts.
