Waltons decided not to renew its 25-year lease, opting instead to move the business to its existing branch at Blanchardstown Retail Park. The double-fronted city-centre shop has a ground floor extending to 565sq m (6,077sq ft) and is expected to attract a rent of at least €250,000 a year.
Ben Pearson of Agar said the vacant premises were likely to be considered for a convenience store or discount outlet, or possibly for furniture and household goods. It was unlikely to end up as another restaurant, however, as the area was already oversupplied.
