I heard an advert for Iceland in Longford on iRadio a couple of weeks ago. How did I never hear there was an Iceland in Longford?? It’s about an hours drive from here so Lucy and I headed over there today. Iceland, for those who don’t know, is a freezer food shop.
Lucy was looking forward to going to Tally-weijl….it’s closed on a Sunday! The Penneys was very small and most of the shops in the town were closed. So we weren’t having a very good day.
We decided to drown our sorrows in coffee and cake while we googled shops. We found out that google lies! It told us there was a New Look in Longford…Karie on Twitter told us that there isn’t one, it’s actually in Mullingar. At one point I was so fed up of Longford I almost went to Athlone! I’ll never complain about the shops in Sligo again!
We drove out of the town centre and down to Iceland. We found a fantastic store in the retail park called Mr. Price. I’d never heard of it before but it was brilliant, some great bargains to be had there. It’s a bargain shop with a difference, they had Body Shop shower gel, Marks and Spencer products and American Pop Tarts €1.49! So Mr. Price and Iceland saved the day and we did end up doing some shopping.
We were going to stop off at Carrick-on-Shannon on the way home but it was lashing rain so we carried on home, apart from a quick stop off at the Gaelic Chieftain.
