Dublin department store Clerys to be sold to Gordon Brothers

Restructuring firm Gordon Brothers is set to acquire iconic Dublin department store Clerys.

Gordon Brothers is prepared to pay €14m (£11m) to take over about €26m (£20.4m) in debt owed by Clerys to Bank of Ireland.

Detailed discussions are still ongoing around what to do with a number of development sites near the store which were acquired by Clerys with a view to expansion.

The department store has been owned by the Guiney family for 70 years.

In the 12 months to the end of January 2011, Clerys recorded a loss of €2m (£1.57m).
