THE Boulevard, Banbridge has marked its new rebrand with the announcement of three new stores, creating a total of 30 new jobs.
The new stores include global sportswear brand, adidas, as well as well-known designer and manufacturer of athletic footwear, apparel and accessories, Asics, and fashion-forward footwear and accessories retailer, Kurt Geiger.
The openings at the centre represent a total investment in the Banbridge shopping destination of over £900,000, which saw an increase of 26% footfall throughout the duration of its relaunch weekends.
Chris Nelmes, centre manager, The Boulevard, said:
“We are continuing to make strides in our commitment to providing the premier outlet shopping experience in Northern Ireland through the introduction of three new global brands to The Boulevard; adidas, Asics and Kurt Geiger.
“We want to make sure that we can attract both new and current customers back to the centre time and again as we continue to attract new and exciting retailers in the lifestyle, fashion and food and beverage categories.”
Alastair Coulson, asset and property management director of The Lotus Group, said:
“This latest significant investment of £900,000 closely follows our centre rebrand and aligns with our continued vision of striving to become a world-class outlet shopping destination.
