Last or­ders called at Cal­lan’s off li­cence

The Argus - - NEWS -

IT was the end of an era in Park Street as the shut­ters came down on Cal­lan’s off li­cence for the last time on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

The fam­ily-run busi­ness had traded at 40/41 Park Street since 1941 and Kevin and Mary Cal­lan an­nounced their plans to re­tire and sell the busi­ness ear­lier this year.

Post­ing on their Face­book page, Kevin, Mary and son Niall ex­tended their ‘ heart­felt grat­i­tude to all that have played a part in the Cal­lan jour­ney at 40/41 Park Street.’

‘From long stand­ing loyal cus­tomers which were the core of our busi­ness to a fan­tas­tic sup­plier net­work and sup­port­ive neigh­bours and staff over the last 8 decades we could not have done it with­out you,’ they said.

‘ The jour­ney has been ex­cit­ing, chal­leng­ing and while sadly it is at its end, it has served us with both many last­ing mem­o­ries and amaz­ing re­la­tion­ships with so many that we now call friends. And so, we say a mas­sive thank you to each and ev­ery one of you that have been part of the Cal­lan’s 77 Year Jour­ney.’

The land­mark busi­ness premises is for sale though Philip A. McAr­dle & Son Auc­tion­eers.
