Pets at Home, Poundstretcher, Home Bargains and Discount NI have secured 43,000 square feet of prominent retail space at the centre, bringing the number of stores to almost 70.
The Co Armagh shopping centre's current retailers include Sainsbury's, Debenhams, H&M and Curry's.
Management at the centre have said there are plans to add more stores towards the end of the year, adding more jobs to a complex which already employs 1500 staff on a full and part-time basis.
Rushmere Shopping Centre Manager, Martin Walsh, said: "A key element of Rushmere's success has been our ability to provide customers with an innovative retail mix that keeps shoppers coming back.
"As one of the leading, fastest-growing shopping complexes on the island of Ireland, I'm confident we can continue to deliver more growth, create more jobs and a great retail experience in the year ahead."
He added: "It's exciting to think we are now home to even more well-known brands and we hope this will not only encourage our existing customers to keep coming back, but also bring thousands of new shoppers to the area."
Rushmere occupies a 28-acre site in the centre of Craigavon location just minutes from Junction 2 of the M12.
It combines a 350,000 sq ft covered mall with a major retail park, served by 1,800 free parking spaces.
