Florentine Centre Faces Another DelayJanuary 16, 2020
Given that bastarding Amazon, pretty much every shop that isn’t relying on coffee or food has a sale on.
Pretty much every single day of the year.
With this in mind, we thought having all the town’s bargains in one bin would make life a whole lot easier for all the tight-fisted Greystonians out there.
Who knows, it may even tempt you away from the Bezosland. And Dundrum.
Naturally, being Greystones, it’s proven pretty darn impossible to get all our shop owners to get their sales acts together, so, we reckon the best thing to do is simply post here the ones we can unearth. Take a walk, and you’ll probably find some more…
Given that Christmas just happened, there are sales all over town. Here are some of the most recent Greytones specials…
Given their recent Best Vegan Takeaway national win, Camile Thai will be celebrating on Thursday, January 30th, when all their vegan dishes will be just €5.99 – eat-in or takeaway. Boom!
At Brooke & Shoals, everything and anything is reduced, largely by 20%. With a little bit of charm though, you might get even more of a discount…
Across the road, Azur are about to move across the road, to Madison & Co’s old place – so, all their shoes are made for walking out of the shop right now, with reductions all across the boardwalk.
And just up Hillside Road, by pure coincidence, Pretty Woman is relocating too – and there’s 70% off sale items right now. Yowsa!
At Sam McCauley, they’ve got a 3-for-2 on vitamins and minerals, whilst at O’Brien’s, you can get a Gran Reserva for €10 (saving €5.95), and a four-pack of Carlsberg non-alcoholic for €5.
At Greystones Antiques, that Paine lass certainly has her finger on the purse – join the Guide, Linda, ya feck! – but right now, you can get 20% off many items, with 15% off all gold jewellery and 10% off diamonds. Nice ice, baby.
Should you be thinking about getting your loved ones immortalised, Sheena Griffin Photography has three incredible January offers on the go right now, saving you oodles of moolah whilst making you look pretty darned attractive…
If you’re keen to add another bow to your, eh, arrow, Artzone are doing trial classes for just €5. Which, given that they’re just about the most popular art classes around, is a pretty sweet way to start 2020. Just use the code MUK412 at checkout…
Emma and Christina at Lamb Design on Cherry Lane have a great big 2020 Sale on too, with 15% off furniture, 25% off accessories, and a whopping 50% off Christmas decorations. Class!
Just got word from the groovy Isobel in Lorient Gifts – right now, the woman’s got discounts on just about everything. Including the front door. Just in case there are any builders out there.
On the fashion front, Sorcha and the Escape gang are having a great big Winter Sale, with 70% off sale items, Anne at Pretty Woman has 50% off a whole lotta goodies.
Worth noting that Andrew at Posh Wash will get your windows sparkling and your gutters gleaming clean for just €99 throughout the month of January. Nice.
