CARPHONE Warehouse is to close all of its Irish stores – including a branch in Letterkenny.
Dixons Carphone today confirmed the decision to close 69 standalone and 12 outlets within a store will all be shut.
The move will lead to 486 redundancies.
Carphone Warehouse Ireland has seen a decrease in footfall of more than 40 per cent in the last year.
“Although these changes in behaviour were anticipated, they were expected to occur over a longer period of time,” it said.
“However, the change in shopping behaviours has been accelerated by the pandemic.”
The news comes after Vodafone confirmed that it would cease selling phones through the retailer.Tags:
