MITCHELSTOWN SHOP CLOSES OVERNIGHT
Mitchelstown was dealt yet another blow last weekend, as a local business, Champagne & Strawberries, was forced to close overnight, as high overheads proved to be just too much.
Having been a part of Lower Cork Street since 2005, proprietor Fiona O’Rourke said that it was a very hard decision to make, but that the costs were just simply too high to go on.
“It was a harsh decision and it was very hard to say, OK that’s it, but there is no point in lingering on when I had the other outlet in Fermoy to go to. It wasn’t an easy decision, but it was the best one,” she told The Avondhu.
