Retail NI Comments on Eason Closures

Commenting on the closure of Eason’s seven stores, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“This is incredibly sad news for the 144 Eason’s employees and for our high streets as a whole. Eason & Son was a household name and a hugely respected local business, and its closure is a loss to our retail sector”

“It’s not just the loss of the business - it is the reduced footfall for the surrounding traders located beside its seven stores that we also have to factor in”

“Our retail sector and town centres face a long road back and we need the Executive to bring forward a big bold recovery plan to help create 21st century high streets and to support and grow our local retail sector”

“Our thoughts are with the 144 employees and their families at this challenging time”
