Primark opens new store at Centre:MK
Fast fashion retailer Primark has opened a new 75,000 sq ft store at Centre:MK shopping centre in Milton Keynes. It’s the largest new store opening at the centre in the last 25 years.
It follows the retail giant’s record breaking 160,000 sq ft flagship shop opening in Birmingham last week.
Located in the former BHS unit on Silbury Arcade, the new store features larger shopping aisles as part of Primark’s new store format, and showcases the entire range of womenswear, menswear, childrenswear and homeware.
Ed Sellick, on behalf of Centre:MK joint owners, Hermes Investment Management and AustralianSuper, commented: “The opening of Primark is a huge milestone and highlights the dedication to our strategy of ‘reimagining an icon’ that has seen over £60m investment across the shopping destination since 2016.
“Primark joins Centre:MK as the most requested brand by customers, and so we are thrilled to officially announce the opening of this firm fashion favourite.”
Primark’s retail director for the UK & Northern Europe, Simon Gibbs, added: “We’re delighted to open a second Milton Keynes store in Centre:MK offering customers even more amazing fashion at amazing prices. Today’s opening brings the number of Primark stores to 189 in the UK and 370 internationally and we look forward to continued growth.”
