Castle Mall to welcome new anchor tenant

Castle Mall in Antrim is to welcome Northern Ireland-based Lynas Food Outlet as a new anchor tenant this autumn.

The news follows the scheme’s acquisition by local owners Keneagles in August 2021.

Works by Mascott Construction are due to start in the middle of May to restructure part of the mall to facilitate the 8,500 square foot store.

The new shop forms part of family-owned Lynas’s plans to have 18 stores by 2024. It will carry several new product lines including the retailer’s exclusive restaurant quality ‘Frozen For Freshness’ range, own brand Chefs’ Selections, multipack bulk value deals, as well the own-brand butchery label, Causeway Prime.

Lynas Foodservice chief operating officer Gary Mills said: “We are thrilled to see work beginning in Castle Mall for our latest Lynas Food outlet. Antrim is going through a huge regeneration and with more investment in the town centre and additional family homes under construction, we see the potential in this catchment area and are delighted to not only bring our product range to the town but also create additional jobs throughout the construction and retail operations.”

Situated directly across from Antrim Castle Gardens, which attracts 500,000 visitors per year, Castle Mall has recently seen Holland & Barrett, Specsavers and Card Factory upsize and relocate their stores within the scheme. In addition, pet shop Furbies is due to join the line-up in June.

Pamela Minford, centre manager at Castle Mall, said: “Lynas Food will reshape Castle Mall completely by opening it up onto central carpark and inviting customers to continue their shopping experience right through the centre. We have a strong local community in Antrim who want to see Castle Mall succeed and this is just the beginning of our regeneration strategy with further exciting development plans to come soon.”
