Claims Of Signs Of Recovery In Retail Sector

An Ennis-based retail lobby group claims the industry is beginning to stabilise, after a shaky start to the year.

The latest report from Grant Thornton shows that sales across the board were up almost 2 percent in Quarter Three compared to the same period last year.

Furniture, flooring and large home appliances were among the most successful sectors.


Deputy CEO of Ennis-based Retail Excellence Lorraine Higgins is encouraged by the results.
