From my experience their are very few actual locals who own retail businesses in Castlebar, they are mainly headquartered in Dublin or abroad.
Castlebar is currently overrun with charity shops, discount stores, hairdressers and beauticians, Mr Price going up beside the bus stop could be the start of the trend on main street happening in our so called shopping quarter.
Money is getting scarcer and scarcer for many people and even a small saving can make a big difference to a person, local business really needs to adapt or go under and that is the harsh reality of the times we live in.
