Discount retailer Home Bargains has said it is “thrilled” with the numbers of shoppers visiting its new store in Ballyclare.
The 20,000 sq/ft Granges Street outlet, located in the former Woodsides department store building, is the company’s largest retail offering in Northern Ireland.
The store, which was officially opened by Deputy Mayor Pat McCudden on July 12, represents an investment of around £500,000 by the company and will provide up to 40 full-time and part-time jobs.
Joe Morris, operations director at Home Bargains, commented: “The store opening was a great success and we’d like to thank Alderman Pat McCudden for giving up his time to attend.
“We’re thrilled by the response we’ve already seen from shoppers in Ballyclare and are looking forward to seeing even more new customers come through the doors.
“We’d also like to thank all staff members for ensuring the launch day ran as smoothly as possible.”
Home Bargains has more than 300 outlets across the UK, 14 of which are in Northern Ireland.
