Food off the menu at Dunnes in Spain

Dunnes Stores is to stop selling food at its outlets in Spain, the Irish Independent has learnt.

Dunnes has had a presence in Spain for more than 30 years, opening its first store there, in Malaga, in 1980. It now has five outlets in the country, which are run by Leo Keohane, a brother of Tesco Ireland boss Tony.

It is understood that about three of the outlets in Spain sold food, but that they'll now focus on selling textiles and homewares.

A number of international retailers in Spain cater for the expat community there, with sections devoted to British food in some stores.

Dunnes has six stores in England, and five in Scotland.
