With the restrictions starting to lift, this Bank Holiday weekend really is one to celebrate. Plus if the weather holds, fingers crossed, we’ll be able to get out in to the garden and have a tasty bbq or a picnic.  Our stores here in MQSC have everything you need to make it fun, colourful and mouth-watering.

For the best of BBQ and picnic food make sure to pop into M&S, Pana Bread and SuperValu where they have great bundled offers such as M&S buy 3 BBQ items for only €12 on selected items, SuperValu has 2 for only €5 on selected packs of fruit and you can top it all off with some super healthy rye, sourdough and crunchy baguettes from Pana Bread.

Make your fingers green and your garden an oasis of colour with the help of Dealz who have everything from pest control to plant feed and compost not to mention those wonderful little extras such as fairy doors, bird baths and even garden solar lighting and the best bit of all is that they’re all priced at only €1.50 – where else but Dealz!

Heading to the beach?  For only €1.50 you can help them have the time of their lives with these buckets and spades, inflatable characters and swimming goggles – also from Dealz here in MQSC.

And aren’t we all dying to get into bright colourful cheerful floaty summer clothes!  Then a visit to Born Clothing is a must.  These cardigans are only €29.99, the Liana orange maxi dress is €49.99 and the adorable pink gingham dress is also €49.99.

And don’t forget to drop into Carraig Donn and Newbridge Silverware for something to sparkle in the sunshine!  Boots on our 2nd floor have a huge range of the all important sun creams for adults and children, waterproof and long lasting too.

We’re delighted to be back and we’re delighted to see you too.  Please don’t forget that it’s still essential to wear a face-covering in the centre – we’re not quite out of the woods yet so make sure to stay safe.
