Beauty brand Moulton Brown opens unit at Boulevard

The Boulevard in Banbridge, where beauty products retailer Moulton Brown has signed a temporary lease

BEAUTY brand Molton Brown is creating seven jobs at the Boulevard with the opening of a pop-up shop in the lead-up to Christmas.

The retailer, which sells luxury bath, body and home products, will set up in a 1,075 sq ft unit in September, with the option to extend its lease until January.

It comes on the back of a strong trading period for the Boulevard since reopening in June, with footfall up by an average of 15 per cent compared to the same time last year.

The retail destination's director Chris Nelmes said: “Molton Brown is an iconic brand which complements our existing tenant base and matches perfectly with our shopper demographic. The signing is testament to the success of the scheme and our ongoing investment in it.

“We invested heavily in our post-Covid environment and successfully executed a clear strategy for welcoming shoppers back to the scheme in a safe and welcoming way.

“The past six weeks of trading have shown this has been effective. We're confident our approach will continue to attract shoppers for our tenants, including the latest member of the Boulevard family, Molton Brown.

“This exciting development will not only benefit the scheme and its shoppers, but is also incredibly encouraging for the overall outlook of retail in Northern Ireland.”
