Mr Price offering jobs to workers affected by Argos closures
Mr. Price is helping those affected by the Argos closures.
All 34 Irish Argos stores are set to close by June 2023.
Following the news, discount retailer Mr. Price is now offering jobs to those affected.
Mr. Price confirmed there are jobs available in their stores, as well as in distribution centres.
"Spread the word, the Irish-owned retailer MrPRICE is offering Argos workers who are losing their jobs the opportunity to join the ever-expanding Mr. Price team!"
"The proudly Irish company has said “Not to worry Argos workers. We’re hiring and our doors are always open if you’d like to join Ireland’s fastest-growing discount retailer."
The Mr. Price team also said there are a variety of jobs available in their 63 stores across Ireland.
"With over 63 stores nationwide we have plenty of retail opportunities for anyone affected by the recent Argos announcement!”
You can visit the career section on Mr. Price's website to see all the open positions in their stores and their distribution centres.
Over 400 employees across the 34 Irish Argos stores are set to be affected by the closures.
Trade union Mandate, who represents the Argos workers, made this statement about the closure:
"Today is a difficult one for Argos’s staff here in Ireland as they get the news that the company will be closing down here. Because Argos is shutting down its complete operation in Ireland this amounts to a collective redundancy which requires a 30-day consultation period and we know the company intends to honour that obligation to engage.
"We will be using this period to negotiate the best possible terms for those who are losing their jobs.
"We are expecting a constructive response from the company."
