A POLISH SHOP AS IT WAS IN MAY 2011
This was once a Polish Shop at a time when Ireland was full of such shops.
Back in the U.S.S.R.” is a 1968 song by The Beatles (credited to the song writing partnership Lennon/McCartney but primarily written by Paul McCartney) which opens the double-disc album The Beatles, also known as The White Album. It segues into the next song on the album, “Dear Prudence”. The song was released as a single in 1976.
I tried to translate the information below but the Google translation did not make a lot of sense. Anyway, I did not notice the shop when I visited Academy Street in May 2019.
I cam across the following description/review:
Niespelna miesiac temu powstal w irlandzkim Cork trzeci z kolei “ruski” sklep 🙂 o wdziecznej nazwie “Back in the USSR”- tyle ze nastawiony przede wszystkim na obsluge polskich klientow.
Ba, nawet na malym szyldzie zawieszonym zaraz przed szyldem “glownym” napisano wrecz: “Polski Sklep” (ten mniejszy szyld zaznaczylem na zdjeciu bialym kolkiem – niestety, jest on prawie nieczytelny).
No, polski to on jeszcze nie jest. Obsluga jest – podobnie jak w dwoch poprzednich – rosyjskojezyczna 🙂 ale – juz znaczna czesc towarow znajdujacym sie w nim jest importowana z Polski. Natomiast jest to pierwszy w Cork sklep, ktorego wlasciciele chcac przyciagnac sporo potencjalnych klientow – Polakow, posluzyli sie haslem: “Polski Sklep”…
According to Google Translate:
Less than a month ago, the third “Russian” shop was opened in Cork, Ireland 🙂 with the graceful name “Back in the USSR” – only that it is focused primarily on serving Polish customers.
In fact, even on a small signboard hung right in front of the “main” signboard, it was written: “Polish Shop” (the smaller signboard I marked in the photo with a white circle – unfortunately, it is almost illegible).
Well, he’s not Polish yet. The service is – as in the previous two – Russian-speaking 🙂 but – already a significant part of the goods in it is imported from Poland. However, this is the first store in Cork whose owners, wanting to attract a lot of potential customers – Poles, used the slogan: “Polish Shop”…
