The iconic Mourne Antiques store is moving premises in Letterkenny – and owner Frances Spears needs a hand with the packing.
There is a lot of interest in the new location – because it’s the former bank across the road.
Proprietor Frances Spears has had her leading antiques store in Letterkenny for over 22 years now.
The past five years have been at 38 Upper Main Street, which always has an eye-catching window display. But this month Frances is moving on to bigger and better places at the former Bank Building on the corner beside Dillon’s Hotel.
The new shop will open on the 19th of July.
Frances is hoping to make her packing work easier, so she is hosting a huge half price sale to lighten the load.
Everything remaining at Mourne Antiques is now 50% off. Apart from the jewellery which is 10%, because Frances says she can carry that herself!
This is the perfect opportunity to visit the Mourne Antiques shop and browse Frances’ amazing finds for a fraction of their price.
The shop always has an eclectic mix of stock for one-of-a-kind gifts and homeware. So why not go and bag a bargain – and give Frances a helping hand with the big move.
The new location at the Bank Building will have many benefits for Frances, Keith and the team. Customers will love the extra space and private parking – making collections and deliveries much easier.
Frances says she has always admired the building across the road, which was most recently the ACC bank before closing 14 years ago.
The main advantage of moving, Frances says, is “the shop will be larger and a better shape, almost square, showing off my pieces better – and hopefully not getting too crammed so my customers aren’t afraid to move!”
The building is almost an antique in itself – with its banking history going back around 100 years.
“It has some delightful original features, particularly the entrance – I can’t wait to open the doors,” Frances said.
Make sure to call into Mourne Antiques over the next week to bag yourself a bargain and enjoy the 50% off sale until Wednesday 17th July. And don’t miss the opening of the new store on 19th July!
