Lunn’s creating up to 40 new jobs

Lunn’s, a luxury high-end jeweller and watch boutique, is hiring up to 40 new employees as it opens four stand-alone brand stores in Belfast.

The family-owned company is establishing separate showrooms for some of its most popular watch brands. Omega, Breitling, and Montblack are among the brands represented, as is a Gucci Watches and Jewellery store.

Following a major revamp of the arcade in 2019, they will join the Lunn’s flagship store at Queen’s Arcade, as well as the Rolex and Tag Heuer boutiques that are already there.

The new stores are expected to be completed by the end of the year. It is hiring around 20 people for the new stores, as well as up to 20 people across the board.

The addition of new stores for four such iconic brands, according to John Lunn, managing director of Lunn’s Jewellers, is a “vote of confidence in Belfast and provides a boost for the city’s retail offering that will be popular with both local shoppers and international tourists as they begin to return to Belfast.”

“We are excited about Queen’s Arcade’s future and will continue to invest to make it one of Ireland’s premier shopping destinations,” he said.
