The good old days.

5. (And yes, you might occasionally refer to Debenhams as Roches)

6. You have fond memories of its Pick-N-Mix

Every Irish child’s happy place.

7. As well as of traipsing around with your Mam while she stopped to talk to people she knew

Ah, memories.

8. That little Roches Stores sticker, though


9. Its clothing offering was second to none

Eat your heart out, Armani.

10. You can scarcely believe it’s been ten years since it closed


11. Ireland got a whole lot less glamorous when Roches Stores closed, tbh

Gone but never forgotten.
