m&s in talks over first limerick store
Marks & Spencer is in talks to anchor a €50 million shopping centre in Limerick city. The Irish Times reports sources in the M&S camp said they had been offered extremely attractive terms to anchor the Parkway Valley shopping centre which was abandoned five years ago when Liam Carroll’s Zoe Group collapsed. M&S originally planned to open their first Limerick store at the Crescent but the move was blocked by both Limerick County Council and An Bord Pleanala. If it goes ahead, this would be the retailer’s first store in Limerick.
