NEW EV Charging point!

ESB have installed a new two point Type 2 22kw fast charger at Bloomfield. A breakdown of the charging rates are noted below.

To ensure a charge point is available for the next user and to respond to EV driver feedback , an overstay fee of £8 will apply for charging sessions longer than 10 hours on this 22kW charger. (Note: this charge is applied once). We recommend you turn on your notifications on the ecar connect app so that you can receive a prompt to remind you when the overstay fee applies while you are charging.

Waterstones is now OPEN!

“We are thrilled to open a brand new bookshop in the seaside city of Bangor, Northern Ireland. Our location in the busy Bloomfield Shopping Centre will have an exciting range of books and gifts, from the newest bestsellers, inspiring Children’s books and an exciting non-fiction section. Our booksellers are very much looking forward to meeting each of our customers and we can’t wait to recommend your next read.”

The comfort of bees

You may have noticed some characters have appeared at Bloomfield over the last few weeks. We have been working with Daisy Chain Inc on an Arts and Business project which has created our Bloomfield story ‘Comfort of the bees’. Comfort of the bees was written by local writer Paul Hutchinson and local artirst Ray Bonner @francoisgotbuffed brought the characters to life.

You can read our story below and listen to a little bit about each of our characters read by writer Paul Hutchinson.

Bloomfield Recycled Garden

It’s National Gardening Week so no better time to showcase our Bloomfield Recycled Garden!

Jamie the Centre Manager has worked hard transforming this former dumping ground into a green space which creates a 5 star hotel for our bugs and beasts, absorbs carbon emissions and is a quiet area that can be enjoyed by our staff.

The Bloomfield Bees will be happy too!

Quiet Hour Every Thursday – Autism Awareness

From Thursday 14th November the hour from 6-7 every Thursday will be Quiet Hour. #autismawareness

As part of our commitment to making Bloomfield a pleasant and easy experience for all customers, we are introducing a quiet hour from 6pm – 7pm every Thursday from 14th November 2019 onwards. During this time, we will turn off the music on the mall and within may of our stores. We have also asked the stores who have the capability to mute their tills during this quiet hour.  

We are working closely with all stores to try and make Bloomfield accessible for all. This is an ongoing process and we appreciate any feedback on how we can continue to improve and make the centre a pleasant experience for all.
