Home Bargains to launch 33,000 sq ft store at Kennedy Centre

Discount store Home Bargains plans to open a brand new 33,000 sq ft store in west Belfast’s Kennedy Centre in April, hiring 120 staff.

Home Bargains said it was “really pleased” to service the local community and that its investment in the store will allow the discount chain to bring “even more bargains” to west Belfast.

As well as the new Home Bargains store, value fashion brand Peacocks has recently signed a new lease for 10 years on its 10,000 sq ft store.

Titanic Telecommunications also committed to a five-year deal on a new office and the well-known 26 West Bar and Grill has just signed a new 10-year lease.

Kennedy Centre manager John Jones said: “We are entering the centre’s 31st year in business on a high.

“Many of our retailers also reported record sales. During a turbulent time through the pandemic, the end of last year and into the start of 2022 is proving to be a really positive and encouraging time.”

Mr Jones added that there will be some “more big announcements” for the centre over the coming months.

“We have 57 businesses located at the centre and we are looking forward to seeing the offerings expand for our customers,” he said.
