Two new currency exchange outlets planned for Belfast's CastleCourt
One of the biggest private exchange bureau de change firms in the UK has invested £150,000 in two new outlets at Belfast's CastleCourt.
Up to eight jobs will be created when Eurochange opens its first premises on the Lower Mall floor of the city centre shopping complex on June 1.
Another outlet is expected to open on the Upper Mall floor at a later date.
Eamonn Murphy, of Murphy Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants, which acted as agent for the deal, said it was an exciting time for the company.
"As these stores open and bed into the retail fabric of Northern Ireland, our client will be looking for further outlets or even businesses they could purchase," he explained.
"Eurochange can obviously see a market in Northern Ireland and we're happy to open these two outlets in CastleCourt."
Giles Custerson, managing director at Eurochange, said: "We're delighted to be opening our first branches not only in Belfast but in Northern Ireland as a whole, which represents a new and exciting step forward for the business.
"CastleCourt has long been on our radar as a great location for our expert foreign exchange service, so we are excited to finally be opening.
"We are pleased to have created new jobs in Belfast and we also look forward to welcoming customers into our new branches soon."
Eurochange has been trading for over 40 years across the UK. It was named Moneyage Travel Money Provider of the Year in 2016 and 2017.
