Penneys to close Longford store over Covid-19 fears

Penneys is to shut all of its stores, including its Longford store, until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The multinational retailer made the announcement this Wednesday evening on social media. 

In a statement on Facebook, Penneys said: "With the health and welfare of our employees and customers front of mind, we have made the decision to close our stores in the Republic of Ireland, until further notice.

"Penneys has overcome many challenges over the past 50 years, and we pride ourselves on our agility and our ability to adapt. We thank all our employees, customers, suppliers and partners for their continued support."

Earlier this week Longford's Spirit Clothing closed as a measure to combat the spread of coronavirus #Covid19.
