Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has described the news that Carpetright is to close stores in the north including its Coleraine outlet as a blow to the town.
The East Derry MLA said:
“News that Carpetright is to close its outlet in Coleraine is bad news for the town.
“Those employed by the company in Coleraine and elsewhere will rightly be concerned about these closures.
“The loss of these jobs would be a blow to the Coleraine area and the local economy.
“Management should ensure that staff are kept informed of developments and opportunities for relocation or redeployment should be offered if possible.”
