The McCambridge family have this week bid farewell to their iconic store this week, after almost a century trading in the city centre.
McCambridge’s has been in business since 1925, and last month saw the long-time family business sold to the Musgrave Group, which will continue to operate it.
The family behind the famous Shop Street store bid farewell after 97 years in business in an emotional message on Instagram this week.
Eoin, Norma, and Natalie McCambridge said that it has been an honour to serve customers down the years, and thanked everyone for all the support they have shown, both in their long years running the store, and in recent weeks.
They also wished the new owners of the store the best of luck as it continues to trade as usual.
They said that the transition team were a “pleasure” to deal with, and incredibly helpful to them.
“It has been both an honour and a pleasure to have served our wonderful customers of Galway and those that have visited us from far & wide!”
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has ever crossed the threshold of our shop and supported us over the years. We are forever grateful.”
“We are also truly blown away by the outpouring of love and support shown to our family in recent weeks. Thank you to everyone that wrote, sent cards, emailed sent flowers and presents. The sentiment has been so lovely and makes leaving so much harder!”
“We have worked with the best suppliers over the years, we’ve made friends with so many and cannot thank you enough for your support.”
“To our amazing staff…. without you McCambridge’s would not be what it is today. We give our sincere and heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you, both past and present. We will miss all the laughs and good times and leave with such fond memories.”
