The manager of Coleraine’s Diamond Centre has welcomed the news that Furniture Hub is to open at the complex in September.
Gwyneth McQuiston confirmed that the store will occupy the former Tempest unit which means that the Abbey Street entrance to the shopping centre will be open to customers again.
Work has already begin to fit out the shop and the business - which operates stores in Belfast and Strabane - has been advertising for sales and delivery assistants, both full and part time.
“The furniture store is a great welcome to the Centre bringing what normally is an out of town shopping experience right back into the centre of town.
“The Furniture Hub, which will trade on ground floor and first floor malls, will open early September and will bring full time and part time jobs to the local community - which is always good news.”
The Times contacted the owners of Furniture Hub but did not receive a reply.
