Big news from the retailers this morning.

Brown Thomas and Arnotts will be closing this evening until further notice.

The Brown Thomas Arnotts group said this morning that they had made the decision to close their Brown Thomas, BT2, and Arnotts stores indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak.

They said that they have been closely monitoring the recommendations and requirements from the Health Service Executive (HSE) and all other relevant authorities.

"As a result, we have taken the decision to temporarily close all Brown Thomas, BT2 and Arnotts physical stores from 5pm today until further notice," they said.

"We want to thank all of our customers, team members and partners for their continued support and understanding at this difficult time, and we will of course keep you updated on further developments as they happen."

Just over 4,000 people are currently employed by the Brown Thomas Arnotts group.

Customers can still shop at Brown Thomas and Arnotts through their online stores and apps.
