Concerns over Maplin and Toys R Us job losses -McCartney

Speaking after reports that Maplin and Toys R Us have gone administration Sinn Féin  Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney said:

“News that both Maplin and Toys R Us have gone administration, putting jobs under threat, would be a blow to the local economy.

“Both companies have stores  at a  number of locations across the north so any job losses would be widely felt.

“While the companies are undergoing the receivership process all efforts should be made to find a buyer in order to safeguard jobs. I would encourage both companies to explore all options and to keep staff informed of all future developments.”
