Former "Pizza Hut", Belfast
Former "Pizza Hut", Belfast
A former “Pizza Hut”, on the Dublin Road, almost opposite Ventry Street. A long-term vacancy since the insolvency of a local franchisee in May 2009. Continue to J3373 : Disguised buildings, Dublin Road, Belfast (September 2014).
Closed, closing and vacant shops. Belfast
On 20 February 2012 the BBC reported “Northern Ireland continues to have the highest town centre shop vacancy rate in the UK, according to a new survey. The survey, on behalf of the British Retail Consortium, recorded high street footfall and shop occupancy. The survey reported that 14% of shops in Northern Ireland's high streets and shopping centres are empty, compared to the UK average of 11%”.
This shared description shows some of the vacant shops in the Belfast City Council district. There are many reasons why shops close including the expiry of a lease, illness/death, redevelopment, corporate acquisitions and rationalisations, reorganisation and insolvency. The photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of record only and do not attempt to comment on the reasons for closure. They should not be used to draw any conclusions and are unlikely to be suitable for business or academic research.
Note added 17 February 2013. This collection probably shows the peak of the recession in Belfast. Some of the premises have since been re-let and are trading with new occupants. I do not intend to add any further photographs taken after today.
