Bakery chain Greggs has said three of its 21 shops in Northern Ireland will not reopen as lockdown takes its toll on the company.
The company confirmed shops in Ballymena and Larne, and a third in Omagh, are now closed.
It has suffered from a complete collapse in shopper numbers in town centres.
But working from home trends have also hit the business as fewer office workers are visiting for breakfast or lunch.
Last week the company only sold around 72% of the pasties, drinks and sandwiches that it did in the same seven days in 2019.
However, it said it is finding sales encouraging as things slowly get back to normal.
It opened its first store in Northern Ireland in 2015 but has now made the move to close shops in Omagh's Showgrounds Retail Park, Fairhill Shopping Centre in Ballymena and Main Street in Larne.
A spokeswoman confirmed the closures.
Last year, the chain made a pre-tax profit of £36.7m in the first half of the year, but swung to a £65.2m loss in the six months to July. Sales across the six months were down 45% to £300.6m.
This comes despite the fact that life-for-like sales were up by 7.5% in the first nine weeks of the year.
Chief executive Roger Whiteside said: "Following successive years of unbroken growth, Greggs made a great start to 2020, coming into the year with momentum and clear strategic plans.
"The strength of our business model enabled us to secure the liquidity needed to support our business through the current crisis and then adapt our operation and investment plans in response to the new environment."
