If I recall correctly there was a Sutcliffes on Merrion Street, a bit further up from The Wrens. Whether that building gave way for this, I know not.

'Thoms' is the store on the left,further down the arcade, the header logo can be clearly seen.-The store also had a smaller frontage in King Edward Street.-They had some amazing "end of lines", and bargains.-Sadly, no longer.......
