Zara Reopens In Belfast City Centre

Popular fashion retailer Zara has reopened its Belfast city centre store, almost seven months since the Primark fire caused it to close.

The safety cordon, in place since the devastating blaze last August, was reduced once more creating an opening between Donegall Place and Fountain Street and allowing the high-street clothing store to recommence its trade.

Retail NI Chief Glyn Roberts welcomed the re-launch as another step forward for the city centre.

"Zara contributes a significant amount of footfall and is an important part of part of the City Centre's retail offering," he commented.

"While good progress is being made, we still have some way to go to fully rejuvenate that part of the City Centre.

"Retail NI will continue to continue work at all levels of Government to see appropriate funding in place to achieve this."
