High-street retailer PANDORA celebrated new beginnings in Northern Ireland with the official opening of its flagship concept store in Belfast last week.
Having received an investment of £250,000, the brand-new mega store centrally located in the Cornmarket area of Belfast is now the largest PANDORA outlet in Ireland, boasting 100 square metres of affordable luxury, with the smaller PANDORA outlet, situated on William Street, Victoria Square closing as part of the move to a bigger, more premium location.
Pete Boyle, franchise owner of PANDORA Belfast and chief executive of Argento said: “As a city, Belfast is a thriving shopping destination so the opening of our flagship store at Cornmarket will really amplify our position in Northern Ireland as a leading jewellery brand.
“We had set our sights on the opening of a mega store for some time now so we are proud to make this a reality having signed a ten year lease. The sheer size of the outlet will allow us to offer an unrivalled customer experience in addition to being able to attract visiting tourists.”
Stephen FitzPatrick, PANDORA added, “The PANDORA shopping experience is key to our success. The opening of our new Belfast PANDORA Flagship store in this prime location will further strengthen our brand presence in the Belfast region, whilst communicating our focus on expanding our branded sales network within Ireland. The store will allow us to continue to drive our mission to become the worlds most loved jewellery brand”
