first_imgAdvertisement Linkedin Print NewsBreaking newsBusinessIvan’s workers will get entitlementsBy admin – January 22, 2014 810 Facebook Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE closure of one of Limerick’s best known family businesses’, was the saddest day in the life of Ivan Cremins, but as workers stage a sit-in at the store, he has assured them that they will receive their entitlements.Ivan’s shop ceased trading on Sunday January 19 after 38 years in business.In a statement issued this evening, Mr Cremins, Founder and Managing Director of the business, said that he and his family “are devastated by the sad turn of events”.He went on to explain that “whilst trading conditions had been extremely difficult for some time, that the pressures that necessitated eventual closure last Sunday were sudden and unplanned”.The Cremins family particularly regretted the shock and inconvenience that this had caused to the staff at Ivan’s, many of whom had long years of service.“They can be assured, and have been assured, that they will receive all their entitlements and the necessary arrangements are being made to put this in place” according to Me Cremins.The business was among the largest independent private sector employers on the North side of Limerick city.For many years, Ivan’s was also one of Irelands leading, family owned, destination food stores and delicatessen.However, the business environment changed considerably over recent years with: the opening of three major supermarkets each within 500 yards of Ivan’s; the development of the Limerick ring road which by-passed Caherdavin; an aging population in its immediate catchment area; the repeal of the law banning below cost selling and finally the worst economic downturn that the country has seen.In the midst of all this numerous efforts were made to recalibrate the business to match the new environment. Unfortunately, this was not sufficient to ensure its survival.“Ivan’s of Caherdavin was, for 38 years, a family owned business and its staff and customers were part of that extended family” said Ivan Cremins who went on to thank all their loyal customers of different generations, as well as their staff and suppliers who had worked with them and supported them over those years.He concluded by saying that “Sunday January 19 was the saddest day of my life”.The Directors are in discussions with their bankers to establish the most appropriate way to bring an orderly conclusion to the affairs of the company.center_img Twitter Previous articleCommunities and old people left abandonedNext articleShortt mounts challenge for seat on City of Culture Board admin WhatsApp Emaillast_img read more

Potters punish absent Jones

first_imgStoke boss Mark Hughes has confirmed striker Kenwyne Jones has been fined for refusing to play against Liverpool and will miss Saturday’s Barclays Premier League game at Crystal Palace. Jones was missing from the Potters’ matchday squad when they were beaten 5-3 at the Britannia Stadium in the league on Sunday. It was subsequently reported that the 29-year-old Trinidad and Tobago international – rumoured to be a transfer target of Everton – had sent a text message to Hughes on the night before the contest to say he was unavailable for selection and, as a result, has been fined the equivalent of two weeks’ wages. Asked about that on Thursday at his press conference to preview the Palace clash, Hughes said: “What was reported was what happened. “I was disappointed and Kenwyne has been fined because it is not something that should happen. “We spoke on Monday just to get an understanding of why it happened, so we had that meeting. “He has been in this week training and we get on with it. “He won’t be involved this weekend, that would be fair to say, because maybe the events of last weekend are still in his mind. “But moving forward, we’ll have to wait and see.” When asked about the talk of Everton being interested in Jones, Hughes said: “Maybe that’s the problem – that maybe people are telling him there are clubs in for him. “We’ve had no contact from anybody in this window, so maybe the information isn’t what it seems from the outside. “But we’ll have to wait and see. The transfer window is open and a lot of things happen in a window. “We’ll have to bide our time. But it is unfortunate – none of us saw it coming, so we are disappointed.” He added: “Sometimes you make mistakes and on this occasion Kenwyne made a mistake. I accept that sometimes that can happen.” Press Associationlast_img read more
