COVID-19 is being blamed for a total of 13 job losses at McCauley Health & Beauty Stores in Wexford and Enniscorthy, as the chain has opted not to re-open its beauty salons.

While eight employees in the Wexford stores and five in Enniscorthy were given the news early last week, it seems that up to 20 more job losses could follow as the company is currently reviewing its operations, such as the store's photo bar and cosmetics counters.

In a statement last week, the company said that it was implementing a number of measures which aimed to combat the 'serious downturn in trading caused by the Covid-19 crisis'. Figuring highly in these measures was that beauty salons in store would not re-open.
