New BPerfect cosmetics store to open in Derry's Foyleside

BPerfect’s Clarrisa Mallon, Brendan McDowell and Eimhear O'Kane preparing for the new Foyleside store.

HOME-grown cosmetics brand BPerfect will open a new store in Derry this weekend.

The 2,200 sq ft unit in Foyleside Shopping Centre, which opens on Saturday May 1, is set to create eight new jobs

It follows the October 2020 opening of BPerfect's £250,000 flagship store in Belfast's CastleCourt Shopping Centre, which created ten jobs.

Company founder Brendan McDowell said: “The north west has always been huge supporters of our brand and the people have always been so welcoming and I am personally so excited that this is our next move.

“We have big plans for the store to make it fully inclusive with colourful, glitzy, amazing interior décor which pushes every boundary housing a range of ten top beauty brands from top make-up artists and cosmetics retailers.”

The Annalong native added: “Our Belfast store has exceeded all expectations and despite being closed for four months, our online sales have gone through the roof.

“The past 12 months have been both a challenge and also a very real opportunity for us to grow our online brand.

“However, nothing beats being present on the high streets of our two leading cities in Northern Ireland.”
