A most imposing 5 storey Edwardian building with its conglomeration of large windows, columns, pedestals, balconies and a copper roofed cupola. This flamboyant building was built between 1904 and 1907 after the original department store was destroyed by fire.

Matthew Robinson, who had earlier designed Rosemount factory in Derry, ater reconstructed the Guildhall, and designed Craigavon Bridge. Inside, the main feature was an open stair well running through the floors, topped with a fine glass atrium.
