Ireland's biggest Lush branch opens at Dundrum
Ethical beauty brand Lush is to open its biggest store in Ireland at Hammerson-operated Dundrum Town Centre. The new 2,311 sq ft store, creating 25 jobs, is due to open in the run up to Christmas, as it “strategically expands across Ireland”.
Ellen Peters, Head of UK&I Property at Lush, said: “[The] trading area will be double the size of our current largest store in Ireland and will be home to our full range of Fresh Handmade Cosmetics.
"Our goal is always to ‘leave the world Lusher than we found it’ and when fitting out shops, we utilise the same values as when sourcing ingredients for our products, working closely with suppliers to source durable and ethical materials.”
Also joining the Dundrum new list is Watches of Switzerland, which will open its first ever store in Ireland at Dundrum in February, while Irish clothing brand Gym+Coffee, has increased its footprint with an upsize and relocation adjacent to the North Mall entrance on Level 2.
Connor Owens, Managing Director, Asset Management (Ireland & Scotland), Hammerson, said: “Across our portfolio, beauty brands continue to perform exceptionally well and Lush will bring a fresh and original approach with its 100% vegetarian, natural and ethical products.
“Research shows that 87% of young people -- a key demographic for Dundrum -- pay attention to a brand’s ethics before making a purchase. Indeed, Lush’s sustainability credentials very much align with our own.”
As Ireland’s largest shopping centre, Dundrum Town Centre is home to over 169 tenants, with almost 140,000 sq m of floor space.
