The Park Centre in West Belfast, is celebrating 30 years in business, having opened its doors to the public in 1985 – and to celebrate this milestone, it’s giving away £30 vouchers to 3 lucky Belfast Times readers.
If you haven’t been, it is located on the Donegall Road, just off Broadway roundabout, and it is situated on the 11 acre site is situated on the grounds of the former Belfast Celtic F.C. In between times, it also enjoyed a spell as a boxing venue and a greyhound track, before it was acquired by a property developer and turned into what is now the Park Centre.
Growing up we regularly shopped in The Park Centre, and although my memory isn’t great, I do remember Options, Dunnes Stores and Ratners. Dunnes is still there, as is the longest running tenant, fashion retailer Louis Boyd. After a £10 million facelift, you can also now shop in Peacocks, Subway, Boots, Thomas Cook, New Look and Iceland. Earlier this year it also welcomed three new stores, DQF, Home Solutions and a Post Office.
The reason behind the success of the The Park Centre has been the support it has received from the local community. Scratching the surface I found out about the community events, school fundraisers, business partnerships etc… that have existed since it opened 30 years ago and it looks like something that will continue into its future.
Centre Manager, Chris Newton said, “The main reason why the Park Centre has been so successful is due to the support it has received from the local community. A business and its local community cannot survive without each other, so we have constantly re-evaluated and adapted the way we do business to suit our core customers.”
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, The Park Centre is giving 3 x Belfast Times readers the change to win a £30 gift voucher to spend in the any of the 35 stores. To be in with a chance of winning simply answer this question…
