Brown Thomas on Grafton Street forced to close after power outage
It wasn’t the Christmas lights causing a short.

ONE OF DUBLIN’S landmark stores was forced to close this morning after a massive power outage.

A spokesperson for the store said that a leak had disrupted the main electrical controls in the store, causing the power to go out.

The store was evacuated as a precaution and Brown Thomas say that workers are attempted to fix the problem.

“The store will reopen at 2pm today. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

The store has just put up its Christmas lights, but it’s not the electricity bill that’s the problem.
