Several job losses across three Wexford towns are amongst the 485 redundancies caused by the closure of Carphone Warehouse’s 80 stores in the Republic of Ireland.
Carphone Warehouse had outlets at Gorey Shopping Centre, Irish St, Enniscorthy and North Main St, Wexford where staff have been informed of the decision and the company said it was influenced by “changing consumer trends and decreased footfall.”
The UK parent company, Dixons Carphone, closed its standalone stores in the UK last year.
This is a worrying trend for Wexford towns who already this year have experienced closure of Bank of Ireland branches at Rosslare and Taghmon and the winding down of the Ulster Bank organisation.
