Hollister to open store at Blanchardstown Centre

Hollister is set to become the latest retailer to join the line-up at the Blanchardstown Centre.

The American clothing brand has agreed a 10-year lease for a 582 sq.m (6,265 sq.ft) unit at the hugely-successful Dublin scheme.

Hollister will join JD Sports who signed up last year for a 1,100 sq.m (11,800 sq.ft) store within a 55,000 sq.ft extension that is under construction. Distributed across two levels adjoining Blanchardstown’s central mall, the development will comprise eight new retail units upon completion next year.

Commenting on Hollister’s decision to locate at Blanchardstown, Pat Nash, managing director of Multi Ireland & UK, said: “This signing underlines the growth of our offering and our ability to provide the broadest retailing choice in both our retail parks and our covered malls.”

Separately, Fingal County Council has granted planning permission for the development of an additional 3,200 sq.m (35,000 sq.ft) extension at Blanchardstown’s Blue Mall entrance.

Existing eateries

This space is being earmarked for the provision of a number of new restaurants ranging in size from 142 sq.m to 861 sq.m (1,528 sq.ft to 9,267 sq.ft). The extension will be located within close proximity to the Odeon cineplex and several of Blanchardstown’s existing eateries including Nando’s Milano and Eddie Rockets.

Developed originally by Stephen Vernon’s Green Property in 1996, the Blanchardstown Centre is acknowledged as one of Ireland’s foremost and most successful retail and leisure operations with more than 16.5 million visitors annually. The scheme includes more than 180 stores and is anchored by Dunnes Stores, Marks & Spencer, Penneys and Debenhams.

Bannon are delighted to be part of the Blue Mall extension with strong interest from both National & International F&B operators.
