Retail NI Welcomes ATM Robbery Arrests in Antrim

Commenting on the ATM robbery on a Retail NI member on Tully Road, Antrim and the arrests early this morning Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:  

“This is welcome news that at long last we have arrests arising from these robberies. Credit is due to the PSNI officers who made the arrests”

“While we have made progress, yet another independent retailer has to deal with the aftermath of a seriously damaged store”

“I know from talking to the numerous Retail NI members who have been victims of these criminal gangs, that there is a huge personal impact on them and their staff”

“Retail NI has met with the Department of Finance in recent days to discuss the impacted retailers being able to access the Rates Hardship fund. This is the very least that needs to happen to assist these small businesses getting back on their feet again”

“I am getting extremely concerned at reports from members with ATMs, who have not even been attacked, who are now seeing their insurance premiums dramatically increasing”

“This adds another burden on an already difficult situation”
