Damien Hennigan started this petition to Sligo County Council (Planning)

In 2013, a referral to Sligo Council by The Sligo Chamber of Commerce imposed restrictions on Homestore and More in Sligo Retail Park restricting them from selling certain items such as bakeware, cooking and baking utensils, etc.  This has caused a lot of uproar amongst local people as other stores in Sligo don't stock these items and those that do some are charging exorbitant prices.  The fact that other Homestore and More stores in other counties such as Longford is allowed to sell everything is a joke.  Why can u buy a frying pan in Homestore but they're not allowed sell the utensils?  The Chamber of Commerce are looking after their "business members" and not the general people of Sligo.  These stores employ locals and foreigners living in Sligo and having one hand tied behind their back is unfair.  Restrictions drive businesses out of towns.  This does not promote local shopping, it promotes online shopping. Give the locals the opportunity to decide where and what they want to buy.  Review and remove these restrictions now!
