Gings gone in Portlaoise

Gings gone in Portlaoise

It is with a heavy heart that we must report that Gings HomeValue has closed with immediate effect. The following is the notice on the Gings HomeValue Facebook page earlier:

It is with deepest sadness that after over 24 years in business in Portlaoise, we announce that we have had to close our doors. We could not fight this recession any longer. We would like to thank our customers, our friends for your support over the years. We would especially like to thank our loyal wonderful staff, some of whom have been with us from the start. They are like family to us. It is an emotional time for all concerned. Kelly Lou café will re-open tomorrow and her bakery is still in business so please support her if you can. 

Joe, Paul, Christy & Helen.”

It is deeply shocking that a business that was iconic in Portlaoise, Laois and the Midlands should have to close its doors. We would like to say thanks to Joe and his family for all they’ve done for successive generations of Laois shoppers. It is also necessary to thank them for supporting the Laois People when we took our first faltering steps almost four years ago. We wish them every success in every venture they take on in the future.
