Carson McDowell has acted for Cancer Research UK in the negotiation of the lease at Cityside Retail Park, Belfast for their first ever superstore in Ireland. The 5,000 sq ft store is quite different from other local charity shops as it is fitted out akin to a larger discount retail outlet. The store includes a private “quiet room” where customers can pick up a phone and be connected directly to a Cancer Research counsellor who can guide them in any questions they have.

Victoria O’Hara, associate in the firm’s retail team said: “This was something new for retail and it is exciting to be involved in bringing a fresh idea to market for such a good cause. We wish the store every success.”
