Alfred Street Properties Ltd, owners of Connswater Shopping Centre and Retail Park, has today announced that Savers Health and Beauty will be opening a new store at the complex this week, creating 12 new jobs. 

The 5,000 sq ft unit will bring the total number of Savers stores in Northern Ireland to 20, with four in the greater Belfast area. 

Savers, which celebrates its 30th birthday this year, specialises in branded health, home and beauty products at everyday low prices, stocking a wide range of hair care, personal care, oral care, household cleaning, fine fragrance, toiletries, health care, skin care, food, drink and alcohol products.

Laura McCarthy, senior property asset manager of Alfred Street Properties Ltd, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Savers to Connswater Shopping Centre in what will be another great addition for the scheme just in time for the peak Christmas period. Connswater has turned a corner in the last year, offering a revitalised customer experience with a great selection of retailers to choose from.

“Since the opening of The Range in December 2017 we have seen footfall increase by 20-25 per cent and we are pleased that retailers like Savers recognise that this is an excellent shopping destination.”

“We are looking forward to opening our Connswater Shopping Centre store on Friday 19th October. We chose this location because it is easily reached via local transport links and in a very lively and vibrant area.

“This store will be a great addition to our existing three shops already open in Belfast. We have created 12 new positions with the store opening, which have been filled, and we are hoping that there will be more available in the future. We will be holding a store launch celebration event on our opening day and we look forward to welcoming everyone along.”
