According to Mothercare, on top of the full range of home, travel and nursery departments, at the new store “A personal shopping service will assist new parents at the very start of their journey”.
In addition “Dedicated stations around the store will make product demonstrations easier than ever so they can try before they buy”.

However Mothercare Ireland is a completely separately owned entity and is not affected by the downturn in UK business.
