Inglot Ireland has announced the permanent closure of its stores in Ireland due to the impact of Covid-19.
In a statement posted to social media, the company said: “Unfortunately, due to the impact of Covid-19 and the immense challenges facing the retail sector, Inglot stand-alone stores will not reopen.
“We would like to thank our retail team members for their valued service and commitment.”
Cork is home to two Inglot stores, one located on Oliver Plunkett Street and the other in Mahon Point Shopping Centre.
The Oliver Plunkett Street store opened back in June 2015 and brought the total number of nationwide stores to eight.
The business is owned and operated by the Swarbrigg family based in Mullingar, who first brought the global brand to the Irish marketplace in 2009.
The first Inglot store opened in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in 2009 and was followed by the opening of stores in Dundrum Town Centre, Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Jervis Shopping Centre, South Anne Street, Crescent Shopping Centre and Mahon Point Shopping Centre.
The Inglot collection is still available to shop at www.inglot.ie and available to purchase at its many stockists nationwide including Boots, McCauley Pharmacy, CARA Pharmacy, Haven Pharmacy, Cloud10 Beauty and Hickey’s Pharmacy, to name a few.
Inglot MUA Pro and Student Cards can still be used online at www.inglot.ie and gift vouchers purchased in store can be redeemed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inglot Ireland follows a number of businesses that have closed due to the impact of Covid-19 including Oasis, Monsoon, and Accessorize on Patrick Street in Cork city centre.
