Matalan to open new store in Belfast


Matalan is to open a new store in Belfast city centre’s CastleCourt shopping centre next month.

The 24,000 sq ft unit will create more than 50 jobs, and is Matalan’s first city-centre location in Northern Ireland. It currently has  227 stores across the UK, as well as 25 overseas franchises.

A spokesperson from Matalan said: “We’re really delighted to be investing in CastleCourt and in Belfast city centre and look forward to bringing our quality clothing and homeware brand – outstanding customer service and click-and-collect service – to shoppers from across the city and further afield.

“This is a landmark Matalan store in an outstanding location and we’re excited by the opportunities that this new store will bring.”

CastleCourt is one of Belfast’s most-visited shopping centres. It is also home to retailers such as Debenhams, Boots, Argos, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Burtons and Jack & Jones.

Michael Wright, director of asset management at CastleCourt owner Wirefox, said: “Matalan’s decision to open a substantial new store in CastleCourt demonstrates the centre’s appeal and investment potential.

“This is another major milestone for CastleCourt in our mission to continually innovate, expand our retail mix to meet growing customer demand and to create unrivalled customer experiences that drive investment and opportunity for the centre and for the city.”
