CLERYS DEPARTMENT STORE is to reopen on 21 November, just in time for the Christmas shopping rush.

The O’Connell Street shop has been closed since July, when heavy rain and thunder and lightening damaged the building.

“Following four months of extensive refurbishment work, the 160-year old retail emporium that is Clerys, had been restored to its former glory,” managing director Dominic Prendergast said today.

In a brief statement, owners OCS Operations Ltd, added that the damage was repaired and building restored with the support of Allianz insurers.

Previously, a spokesperson for the store told TheJournal.ie that all staff who had been laid off in July will come back on board, while some had already returned for “various projects”.
