Future of Letterkenny Carpetright store in doubt

Household store Carpetright has announced it's to close seven of its twenty five stores - putting 19 jobs at risk.

However, the British company says it cannot specify which branches are set to close until it completes a period of consultation with staff.

The company has a premises at Rossview Business Park in Letterkenny - it is not clear if it is one of the stores to close.

Carpetright says it's closing over a quarter of its stores in Ireland because it's seen a fifty per cent decline in sales over the past three years.
