Twenty-six new full and part-time jobs have been created at the Fairhill Shopping Centre, Ballymena through the signing of a trio of new tenants.
Fairhill will now feature the much loved bakery chain, Greggs, the exciting Chopstix Noodle Bar and the popular books, art supplies, games and stationery retailer, The Works.
This will be the first Greggs store in Ballymena and only the seventh in Northern Ireland, adding to the 1,670 outlets across the UK and their arrival in Ballymena is seen as a real coup for Fairhill. The unit will be open from 8am Monday to Saturday (1pm on Sunday), serving fresh sandwiches and freshly baked pastries and savories.
Chopstix Noodle Bar, the UK’s fastest growing oriental quick service and take-away restaurant chain, is located in the Fairhill foodcourt and is already open for business. Chopstix now has over 54 sites across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The Works has over 350 outlets across the UK and is best known for its huge range of books, art and craft materials, gifts, toys, games and stationery at amazing prices.
The three new tenants will further enhance the existing retailer line up in Fairhill, which includes Next, M&S, Debenhams, Boots, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M and New Look.
Fairhill Marketing & Commerical Manager, Natalie Jackson said, “The new tenants are a very welcome addition to our existing stores and highlight our commitment to satisfying the needs of the local community. We know our customers like to see named brands in the Centre, so we’re confident the new editions will be well received.”
Senior Retail Partner from DTZ McCombe Pierce, Michael Pierce said, “We are delighted to confirm these three lettings as they underline the attraction to retailers of Ballymena and the Fairhill Centre. We are in detailed discussions with a number of other exciting retailers about the opportunity to have a presence at Fairhill and I am optimistic that we will have some more good news to reveal in the near future”.
