The future of TUI in Coleraine remains uncertain as the economic pressure on the travel and tourism industry continues with many people planning a staycation within the UK.

TUI began a ‘staggered re-opening’ of its retail network on July 6 however the Coleraine store remains closed.

In a statement to Causeway Coast Community this morning a TUI Spokesperson said;

“Following the closure of our retail store due to Covid-19, we can confirm that TUI’s Coleraine store in Northern Ireland remains closed.

We are unable to confirm at this stage when the store will reopen again.”

Local MLA Maurice Bradley said “There is still an awful amount of uncertainty and fear surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Many families are choosing to holiday at home which is creating a scenario of fewer flights and fewer foreign destinations being sought. I see no change in the foreseeable future and it could be a year before tourism returns to the new normal.”

In November last year, TUI announced that it would close 34 stores over a 12 month period, but it would re-deploy all affected agents and invest in other premises which will open in new locations.

The travel giant continually reassesses the locations based on local population changes and footfall.

The travel and tourism industry is one of the worst-hit industries following the coronavirus pandemic.
