The former fish market premises in Fermoy is set to reopen its doors for the first time in 10 years, with a new fashion boutique set to open in the building along MacCurtain Street next month.

Suzsa, a ladies bouquet based in Mitchelstown, is expanding its business by moving into the town.

Sisters Samantha and Susan O’Donoghue purchased the vacant property which was on the market with Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan, around four weeks ago and work has commenced in anticipation for its opening this summer.

“We’re hoping to be open in around four weeks. There’s a lot of work to do in the meantime with getting stock and equipment sorted, but things are starting to come together,” Samantha told The Avondhu this week.

“It’s a business expansion for us, we’ve a growing customer base because word is spreading out there, so we’re excited with this new venture.”

Previously run by Dan O’Regan, the fish market was a popular shop on MacCurtain Street. The bottom floor of the premises has been idle since its closure in 2006. The top floor of the building is presently occupied by Hong Kong Restaurant.
