BRITISH supermarket chain Iceland has completed a £750,000 refurbishment and expansion of its Park Centre store in west Belfast.

Iceland has operating at the shopping centre for 20 years and the major investment is only the second of its kind in the UK behind London.

The works include a new shop format, significantly increased frontage and floor area, new food ranges and Lavazza coffee. Furthermore, staff levels have risen considerably to 41.

Park Centre manager Ruth Lindsay said the investment was a "huge boost".

“Iceland has been trading here for years and is a well-established store with a loyal customer base. This investment and transformation is a huge boost for the local community and adds significant value to the Park Centre.”

CBRE manage the property and agreed the new lease.

Associate director John Lowry said the investment demonstrated Iceland's commitment to west Belfast.

“It is great to see investment of this scale by Iceland in Belfast, demonstrating their commitment to its store at the Park Centre.

“With the flagship store in London being the only other store to experience this refurbishment to date, the importance of this location within Iceland's portfolio in Northern Ireland is clear to see.”

Iceland operates over 30 stores across the north, with four stores in Belfast on the Antrim Road, Shankill Road, Newtownards Road and Finaghy Road South put on the market last year.
