Southwells Store in Kildare town
One of the oldest grocery stores in Kildare Town has closed up shop.
Family-run Southwell's on Market Square had been a feature of the town centre for years.
Run and owned by the Waters Family the shop closed its doors recently with a notice to customers thanking them for their custom over the years.
The notice reads:
"We would like to thank each and every single one of you for supporting us and being loyal customers to us over the years. We appreciate all your kindness and custom. Thanking you all most sincerely, The Waters Family."
Locals were shocked to see the long running store close down in Market Square this week.
