Retail NI Comments on Thomas Cook

Commenting on the collapse of Thomas Cook, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“Our thoughts are with the stranded holidaymakers and the staff of Thomas Cook. However, we should not underestimate the impact that the loss of over twenty travel agencies in Northern Ireland will have on local high streets and town centres”

“The loss of any business on the high street always has a impact on surrounding traders as a result of less footfall. Sadly, the 23 Thomas Cook outlets join a growing list of vacancies in our town centres and shopping centres”
