Blow for Mayo town centre's retail sector as sports shop closes down

Lifestyle Sports has announced the permanent closure of its long-established outlet at Hopkins Road, Castlebar.

The news is a significant blow for the town's commercial sector and it also results in the loss of a number of jobs.

The sportswear retail business, owned by Stafford Holdings, has been involved in restructuring following a fall in profits in recent years.

A full online sales service will continue to operate for Mayo shoppers.
