A very wel­come re­turn for one of the town’s best known stores

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IT’S al­ways great to see a new busi­ness open­ing in Tralee – and hap­pily it looks like sev­eral are in the works right now – but it’s even bet­ter to see a store re­turn af­ter a long ab­sence.

Such is the case on Bridge Street where, for the last week, John Mur­phy and his son Frankie have been busy kit­ting out a new ‘Cel­cius’ clothes shop.

Like so many lo­cal busi­nesses ‘Cel­cius’ on Ashe Street fell vic­tim to the rav­ages of the re­ces­sion and it’s great to see one of Tralee’s best known brands re­tur­ing to the high street af­ter all these years.

In its hey­day the shop was one of the most pop­u­lar shops in town and I sin­cerely doubt that there’s a Tralee man aged over 20 that doesn’t have at least one item from Cel­cius hang­ing in his wardrobe.

We’re not alone in wel­com­ing Cel­cius back to town. A brief mes­sage on Face­book last week – con­firm­ing the shop was re­open­ing – was greeted with hun­dreds of mes­sages wish­ing John his fam­ily good luck. The Mur­phy’s are putting the fin­ish­ing touches on the new shop which should be open in a few weeks time.
