The world’s biggest Primark is coming to Birmingham
It will have five floors
As of December 2018, Birmingham will have the world's largest Primark store.
The store will be 160,000 square foot in size and will have five floors, making it the largest in the world. Due to its huge size, the store will also offer free wifi, charging points, and seating areas for its customers.
It is expected to employ around 900 people, with 430 of these transferring from Primark's current location on New Street. Recruitment for the new jobs will begin in August of this year.
A Primark Spokesperson said:
"We have a loyal customer base in Birmingham and are very excited to unveil the new store, which will be almost four times the size of our current city centre store"
Purchased by the company in 2014 for a rumoured £60 million, the new store will take over the former Pavilions building , an upmarket Birmingham shopping mall akin to the Mailbox, which opened in 1988.
