“Belfast is one of the largest international travel hubs on the Island of Ireland, making it the perfect location for a newly remodelled Dixons Travel store," she added.
The new store will has a similar look and feel as the award-winning format launched at Heathrow Terminal 3 in 2017
and offers customers top electrical brands with a varied product range including computing, audio, imaging, phones and smart appliances.
The new Dixons Travel store in Belfast fills the void left by Maplin. The electronic goods retailer collapsed earlier this year after being hit hard by a fall in consumer demand.
The company 60 staff in Northern Ireland at five stores located at Boucher Road (15) and Connswater Shopping Centre (11) in Belfast, Coleraine (13), Derry (12) and Belfast International Airport (9). The overall closure led to the loss of 2,335 jobs across the UK at 217 stores.
