As the Government has lifted Level 5 and the country is now under Level 3 restrictions, customers can now shop in physical stores again. Non-essential retailers have been closed since mid-October under Level 5 restrictions. For festive shoppers, Brown Thomas will have extended opening hours to make sure people can safely shop. Its department stores across Ireland will open from 10am to 9pm on weekdays from Tuesday, Saturdays 9am to 8pm and Sundays 11am to 7pm. Arnotts doors will open from 10am on Tuesday and close at 9pm, with the same opening and closing times on weekdays and Saturdays.
