One of Ireland's biggest fashion retailers has opened up its doors for the first time in months today, and the scenes are like something out of the apocalypse.
With safety measure firmly in place, many businesses across the country have begun to slowly open their doors once again to customers. And Penneys reopening its doors to the Irish public has created absolute scenes, after 16 of their stores return to the highstreet.
This queue which had formed outside of Penneys in Cork this morning is something else.

If you want to go to Penneys, go to Penneys.
If you don't want to go to Penneys, don't go to Penneys.
If you do go to Penneys, act safely, and don't be a prick and film people in the inevitable queue. Remember, you're there too!#Penneys
