Women’s clothing retailer Bonmarché is set to open its doors at The Junction Retail and Leisure Park, Antrim, on Thursday 27th July, bringing the 20-year-old scheme to 84% occupancy. Taking a 2,396 sq ft unit, Bonmarché will join the scheme’s strong roster of clothing brands such as Menarys, Animal, and Mountain Warehouse, and will carry a variety of women’s fashion and accessories with an inclusive and varied size range.

The new store will create six new jobs for the company that currently employs 1,840 across stores in Northern Ireland and mainland UK. This will be the fashion retailer’s 11th store in Northern Ireland. Bonmarché is one of the UK’s largest womenswear value retailers, with the ambition of being the destination multi-channel retailer for women who want appropriately styled, quality products at fantastic prices. Established in 1982, the company is going from strength to strength and continually opening new stores and outlets across the UK.
