Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed the announcement that Frasers department store is set to open in the city centre next year.
The Foyle MLA said:
“Today’s announcement that Frasers have bought the building occupied by Debenhams at Foyleside Shopping Centre is positive news for the city.
“Up to 200 staff are set to be employed, providing a significant boost to the local community, local economy and high street.
“This has been a very difficult and challenging year for retailers, workers and their families and many have been facing an uncertain future and it is encouraging to see this development in Foyleside.”
