Popular make up brand MAC will begin to be sold in Derry on July 17.
MAC, a global brand which is so popular customers have been known to make special trips to Belfast and Dublin to purchase the products, will be based in Debenhams in Foyleside which is planning a refit to welcome its newest partner.
MAC will occupy a significant portion of the floor space on the beauty floor level and it is expected that the products will be hugely popular.
The complete Debenhams refit which will create 20 jobs and includes a complete redesign of the existing beauty hall layout resulting in a contemporary and open plan shopping environment is expected to be completed by mid August.
Debenhams Foyleside is currently home to a host of international beauty brands including Chanel, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals, Dior, Estee Lauder, Clarins, Lancome and Benefit, all of which will be given stylish new counters to showcase their bestselling ranges and offer makeovers and treatments to customers.
Ray Hetherington, store manager at Debenhams Foyleside said; “I can’t wait to unveil our new-look beauty hall to the people of Derry. We are completely changing the layout of the department and all beauty brands will be given a modern makeover. We have been working on plans for months so it is very exciting that the re-launch is only around the corner. I’m extremely confident our staff and customers will be impressed by the new look.”
Fergal Rafferty, centre manager for Foyleside Shopping Centre said: “We are absolutely delighted Debenhams is investing significantly in the Centre to create a more inviting, inspiring and easier to shop beauty hall. Our customers will love the fantastic breadth of choice and latest expert advice available from some of the world’s best beauty brands. “The investment in Debenhams follows the recent Apple and Office store openings last year and this sends a strong message that Foyleside is a quality, premium destination for potential investors to locate their business.”
