Quay Coop next Victim

The Quay Coop has downsized the shop floor. Next they will close the Restaurant upstairs.
A couple of years ago City Council installed a Parklet and removed the set downs. Quay Coop thought it a great idea to have people sitting in traffic fumes, so added tables and chairs. SIX Parking or Set Down Spots gone, leaving NONE. I spoke with several of the staff saying these moves would finish the place, probably within two years. It is happening. Cork City Council are hostage to Green Fundamentalism. Combined they are eviscerating the City Centre.

Dont they have a place out in Ballincollig, who in their right mind shops in the city these days.

Quay co-op customers are hardly likely to be car dependent customers as they are more likely environmentally conscious and vegetarian etc. and rock up in their cargo bikes etc. to a city centre business.

May 2022: As part of its 40th celebrations, the Co-op has recently restored the former pawnbroker’s office on the third floor — used over the years as a headquarters for women’s groups, CND, and the LGBTQ community campaigns. “We are delighted to be able to offer this very special private space for business and social groups, private dining, meetings, and reception-style events.”
The Co-op has expanded over the years and it now has three buildings on O’Sullivan’s Quay, number 24, and the premises on either side, one of which was previously the Cork Fire Brigade headquarters. The Co-op’s wholefood stores in Carrigaline, Ballincollig, and O’Sullivans Quay offer a range of organic foods, and health, and well-being products.

The Quay Co-op has been at the forefront of social justice campaigns locally and nationally since its doors opened, campaigning for gay rights, women’s rights and environmental issues. It was set up thanks to a collective effort of feminist, lesbian and gay, environmental and other alternative groups and individuals. Its history has mirrored social and legislative progress in Ireland.

The Quay Co-op has recently opened an online shop — an aspect of the business expected to grow, both in terms of the products available and the wider reach to potential customers around Ireland and beyond. “It is an area that we do plan to focus on more, especially in marketing and advertising. While the Quay Co-op is well established here in Cork, its potential through online trading could be enormous and is one of the areas we expect to see substantial growth in the years to come.”

You might be happier in one of the suburban drive-thru's like McDonalds and KFC etc with ample parking and you do not even have to leave your car to eat ultra-processed unhealthy U.S. style crap.
 
FYI Stacky always replies to my posts. So I call it Stalky. They go to great feats of Googledumb to find or invent contradictory gibberish to distract from the substantive points being made. In reality, despite all the bike lanes, damp arse outdoor seats, etc. footfall and dosh have dropped dramatically at Sullivans Quay. A large section of the shop has been closed, or repurposed to sell off a personal book collection. The upstairs, or more recently Yupstairs restaurant, a Cork favourite for several decades, is about to close. This is sad. Even sadder than Stalky.

The business is expanding its retail presence adjacent in 3 buildings, in the suburbs, upstairs meeting space as well as its online offering after 41 years in business and an ethical, vegetarian, LGBT friendly and environmentally conscious company.

As usual you simply have no idea what you are on about.
 
Stalky cannot resist replying to my posts. Clearly an Obsession. But the level of unreality and lying is Trumpian. The Business has closed about 40% of the ground floor shop. It is not a library, but a sale of one persons life collection of books. It was previously in another ground floor space, that now permanently closed. The Coop Bread, best in town, no longer exists. The upstairs restaurant is closing soon or already gone. Online shopping involves moving goods on a vast scale. Environmentally disastrous. https://earth.org/online-shopping-and-its-environmental-impact/ Stalky you seem out of phase, your polarity is reversed. The world is exactly opposite to the things you seem to believe or make up. Now follow this order:- immediately replay with any old gibberish that you can google about the Coop which will shift this thread back up to the top on the forums.

Why don't you just tell them how to run their 41 year old very successful, sustainable and expanding business?



Order online and Deliveroo will deliver via electric bike.



Book a table right now at their upstairs restaurant and bore the staff into submission of your car dependent future from the past: https://quaycoop.com/restaurant-booking/


If you really even believed half of your nonsense you would be sending a strongly worded letter to the letters page of the Irish Times or Irish Examiner but you decide post semi-confused nonsense online instead.
