Re: Re: Clerys
Some interesting news in last sunday’s Business Post regarding Clerys. As mentioned above here the company recieved planning permission to redesign its shop front to allow for greater transparency through the store. Work should start in NY and be completed by May. Paul Tierney, the MD, also announced that Clerys had aquired Sackville House on Malborough Street for €20 and are developing plans for the site. Great news! and along the lines of what was suggested should happen. Clerys are also very much plugging Marlborough Street as the preferred route for Luas (I agree) and want the council to start looking at M St and Sackville Place in the cvontext of the OConnell Street IAP. The company are also planning a revamp of their Guinneys outlet on Talbot Street but are awaiting plans by the City Coucil to pedestrianise Talbot Street (its on the cards but hasnt been fully assessed yet).
Tierney said he had to problems with the Arnotts development across the street and welcomed the healthy competeition it would bring.
