The owners of Lisburn Square are welcoming renowned brand, the Shane Bennett Salon as their latest high profile arrival.
Shane Bennett Salon, which has been based in Hillsborough for the past 15 years, has an established reputation for quality. Founder of the salon Shane, has been NI Hairdresser of the Year three times and is the youngest member of the elite British Hairdressing Hall of Fame. The salon also recently became the first ever in Northern Ireland to win the British Artistic Team of the Year.
The unit taken by the Shane Bennett Salon occupies a prominent location within the Square, adjacent to Argos, Next, Square Bistro and the newly opened Alfredo’s on the Square. It has already been fitted out with quality finishes, including 12 salon chairs and 3 shampoo stations.
Belfast based commercial property consultants CBRE secured the letting.
Nicky McCollum, development director, Lisburn Square Ltd, commented:
“Shane Bennett Salon is a highly revered brand across the province, not just in Lisburn and Hillsborough. This expansion into Lisburn Square is a very positive move for Shane as well as the Square itself. Lisburn Square is now establishing a core of very strong and popular brands among our tenants and the Shane Bennett Salon is certainly one of these. We are delighted that CBRE have been able to deliver this letting for the scheme.
“Lisburn Square has become extremely successful in terms of the quality and diverse range of tenants we are attracting. There is a palpable momentum building for the Square as a strong location for eating, shopping and general leisure, and we have already seen a notable difference in footfall.”
Shane Bennett said:
“The Shane Bennett Salon has recently been going from strength to strength and as a result, we felt it was time to expand and give the brand a city status and move into Lisburn Square. It has always been a destination salon – we have an extremely loyal client base that travel from all parts of the province. This means the move to Lisburn Square is a perfect fit to suit our re-branding but without any disruption to our clients.
“This move will allow us to continue expanding and develop new experiences for our existing client base and a diverse offering for new customers. We are delighted to be able to bring our unique style to a location that has established itself as a key destination both in terms of leisure and retail. This salon will take on a completely new look from the existing one; we are giving it a contemporary feel with a sense of space but still the luxury factor Shane Bennett Salon is known for.”
The announcement comes just weeks after it was revealed that a popular Italian restaurant, Alfredo’s, was opening its doors in the Square.
