Move to accelerate reopening of retail welcome – Retail Ireland

Retail Ireland, the Ibec group that represents the retail sector, today welcomed reports that Government is set to approve the reopening of all small and large retailers from Monday, after getting the green light from the National Public Health Emergency Team today. The move will bring Ireland more into line with the rest of Europe where, in the vast majority of cases, the retail sector is fully reopen.


Retail Ireland Director Arnold Dillon said: “Retailers have clearly demonstrated their commitment to transforming how they operate to protect the health of customers and staff. The reopening of larger retailers earlier than planned is a welcome acknowledgement of this, along with the urgent need to protect the thousands of vulnerable retail businesses and jobs right across the country.”
