Coming Soon to Park Centre!
The Park Centre is creating 100 jobs following a £3m investment boost.
It will see the opening of two new budget retailer superstores as Homes Bargains and B&M are set to open at the Park Centre this summer.
Bosses of the centre, owned by Latt Ltd, expect the new stores will create 100 jobs.
The chains will invest £1m each and the centre landlord are also investing £1m.
It is anticipated that the addition of the two new superstores will significantly increase footfall in the centre.
Stephen McGeown, Director of Latt Ltd, said: “We are delighted that both Home Bargains and B&M Stores will open new superstores in The Park Centre later this year.
“The Park Centre is located in a prime retail position in south-west Belfast, beside the Westlink and the M1 and close to the Royal Victoria Hospital.
“The addition of a Home Bargains superstore and a new B&M Stores superstore is excellent news for The Park Centre and for the local area, with both significant investment and an important jobs boost.
“B&M will relocate within the Park Centre mall, more than tripling the size of their store.
“The new superstores will occupy over 40,000 sq ft in total, in the former Dunnes Stores grocery unit, which will further enhance the retail offering in the centre.
“We are also delighted that Connected Health, a leading home health care provider, has recently opened a new unit in The Park Centre also.
“The Park Centre now looks to the future with confidence.”
Colin Mathewson, senior director, CBRE, who worked with The Park Centre to secure both investments, said: “The addition of a Home Bargains superstore and a B&M Stores superstore to The Park Centre is fantastic news.
“We are delighted to have worked with Latt Ltd to bring these significant investments, totalling over 40,000 sq ft, to fruition.
“Discussions are ongoing with other brand names and we are looking forward to adding further new retailers in the period ahead.”
