Much-loved homeware store EZ Living Interiors has expanded its business and created 25 new jobs in Belfast, with the investment in a 9,000 sq ft warehouse.
The warehouse based within Titanic Quarter in Channel Commercial Park supports its ‘last mile delivery’ strategy in Northern Ireland.
CBRE NI Director Lisa McAteer, who acted on behalf of the landlord Titanic Quarter Ltd, commented: “We are thrilled to have helped facilitate this extremely exciting phase of expansion for EZ Living Interiors, as the business up-scales to a new fulfilment and delivery facility in Belfast.
“There has been increased competition for industrial and logistics units in Northern Ireland over the last year due to Covid-19 and the surge in online retailing, which has led to a demand for manufacturing, storage and distribution space.”
James Eyre, Commercial Director at Titanic Quarter Ltd, said: “We are delighted that EZ Living Interiors has chosen Channel Commercial Park in Titanic Quarter. The strategic location of Channel Commercial Park was a key deciding factor for EZ Living Interiors and we welcome them alongside a number of existing local, national and international occupiers in the park.”
Oliver Campbell, Store Manager at EZ Living Interiors, said: “A central warehouse means our customers can easily collect smaller items six days a week, making our services more accessible to families whose free time is precious considering the difficult times we find ourselves in.
“We’ve invested in six delivery vans and three container lorries to allow us to deliver furniture quickly and efficiently.
“Covid-19 has been a strain on everyone but at EZ Living Interiors we used the time as an opportunity to improve our customer experience including better order fulfilment on our product range to ensure that our customers can have what they want quickly and easily.”
