S&R Electrics: 'Sam's your man' firm in east Belfast ceases trading

A well-known electrical goods company that traded in east Belfast for more than 40 years has closed.

Twenty staff at S&R Electrics have been made redundant and the directors have said they are considering their options.

The family-run firm built a reputation around the advertising slogan "Sam's your man for a bargain".

As well as selling electrical goods, it also had a furniture business in Newtownards, County Down.

A spokesman for the company said it will be contacting customers who have ordered goods.
