PRIMARK shoppers will be thrilled to learn that the retailer is to open almost half a dozen new stores – with some coming in just weeks.
The high street giant announced in February that it is investing £140million into its UK stores.
Primark said the move will create at least 850 new jobs and increase selling space by more than 160,000 sq ft over the next two years.
It currently has 191 stores across the UK.
The plans include a number of refurbishments and relocations, as well as new stores.
Shoppers in Salisbury, Wiltshire, will be thrilled to learn that they are one of the cities that will be getting a new store.
