The family-run boutique will close its doors after a quarter of a century in business.

Arguably one of the best-known shops in Galway's fair city, Kembali has been part of the scenery on Abbeygate Street for 25 years. However, popular as the independent family-run boutique is, times have been tough and the past few months have taken their toll on the business.

Confirming the heartbreaking news that this will be their last Christmas at the shop, owners revealed that they will be closing their doors for good early in the new year.

"After 25 years in business, we will be closing our doors for good in a FEW MONTHS time. No date yet but when we do we will let you know.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers for keeping us going for so long. We truly do appreciate you.

"We would also like to thank all of our lovely staff, past and present, we have been blessed over the years with some supremely fantastic staff, who have helped create what makes Kembali so special, a relaxed environment, with always brilliant music.

"Thank you all so much, much much love The Kembali Fam."

A very sad day for the City of Tribes.
