Popular fashion brand to open new NI store

The Junction Retail Park in Antrim

Popular fashion store Bonmarché is set to open its doors at The Junction Retail and Leisure Park next month.

The women’s clothing retailer will open in Antrim on Thursday July 27, joining other clothing brands at the shopping outlet including Menarys, Animal and Mountain Warehouse

The store will be across a 2,396 sq ft unit and will create six new jobs. The company currently employs 1,840 people across stores in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

It will be the 11th Bonmarché store in NI.

Established in 1982, Bonmarché is one of the UK’s largest womenswear value retailers.

The Junction, which is owned by Lotus Property, is 20 years old this year, and was acquired by Lotus back in 2018. Lotus is advised by joint agents, Savills and Lambert Smith Hampton.

Asset Manager at Lotus Property, Paul McCann, said: “There is a demand for clothing retailers in Antrim, and they consistently perform well at the scheme.

“It’s something our shoppers want and the arrival of Bonmarché will further strengthen our offering.

“It is an exciting time for the scheme – we have reached 84% occupancy across The Junction’s 300,000sq ft of retail space, with more new tenants on their way later this year. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Bonmarché to The Junction.”

Karen Staton, Projects & Development Director at Bonmarche added: “We are delighted to announce that we will be opening our new store at The Junction Retail and Leisure Park. At Bonmarché, we pride ourselves on offering quality clothing with appropriate styling, great value and in a wide range of sizes, along with outstanding customer service.

“Our team are excited to bring customers in Antrim our inclusive clothing range that makes women feel comfortable, fashionable and fabulous, all at an affordable price.”
