Hamleys heads to Belfast

New shopping centre brings major retail names, including Hamleys, to Northern Ireland.

Hamleys continues its roll out of concessions, this time in Belfast as part of the new Victoria Square shopping centre (pictured).

The retailer is occupying 6,000 square feet in the UK’s largest House of Fraser store, which has been described as the “anchor” of the complex.

Costing around £400 million, Victoria Square has increased the number of the city centre’s shops by a third, bringing together almost 100 retail units under a glass dome.

Hugh Black, centre manager, said: ““Six years in development and 6,000 people involved in the construction, Victoria Square is a beacon for the regeneration of Belfast city centre and the continuing rebirth of Northern Ireland”.
