Connswater 2020

Christmas Gift Guide

We are so excited to announce that Northern Ireland’s largest independent furniture retailer, HouseProud Furniture, will be opening their doors at Connswater Shopping Centre & Retail Park on Monday 2nd November 2020! Just in time for getting the house all ready for Christmas – we can hardly contain our excitement!

With an investment of £350,000 into the expansion, this 8,000sq ft store will also create 10 new jobs for the local area. Barry Muldoon, owner of HouseProud Furniture said “This Belfast store is store number 10 for us. Our mix of imports plus exclusive supplier ranges makes HouseProud totally unique and able to offer the best value at all times. We’re certainly the largest furniture retailer across Northern Ireland and still growing.”

HouseProud will sit alongside Lidl in the Retail Park which welcomed Tim Hortons first ever Drive Thru in NI last year. Laura McCarthy, Senior Property Asset Manager of Alfred Street Properties Ltd, said “It’s great to see HouseProud Furnishings opening its door at Connswater. Retail has been hit even harder during the pandemic with the fall-out of Covid-19 proving to be a challenging time for retailers, however the lockdown period has prompted many consumers to revalue their surroundings and invest their spare cash in their homes. We are extremely encouraged that there are retailers still out there looking to acquire new opportunities in Northern Ireland. We look forward to seeing our customers enjoy the stylish offerings from the popular Northern Irish brand.”

With HouseProud being named “Independent Retailer of the Year awards winner” two years in a row since it started in 2009 in Northern Ireland, we are very excited for HouseProud to open at Connswater. So, whether you are looking for new furniture for your living room, dining room or bedroom, the team at HouseProud will be delighted to assist you in choosing the perfect furniture for your home.
