Primark unveils new and upsized store at Metrocentre

Primark has unveiled its new and upsized store at Gateshead’s Metrocentre.

With the addition of 14,100 square feet on the ground floor, the shop now spans almost 80,000 square feet, or more than 100,000 square feet when non-trading space is included.

Now Primark’s 13th biggest location in the UK, the store has also benefited from the introduction of self-checkout tills alongside its standard manned tills to enhance the customer experience.

Conor Walsh, director of sales for the North East and South West at Primark, said: “The North East is an important region for Primark as we continue to invest in our UK store estate.

“The extension to the Metrocentre store precedes the new store opening in Teesside Park next week and forms part of our overall £100 million investment this year.

“We’re so excited to open our doors today as a bigger and better Primark Gateshead Metrocentre store and welcome our customers in to shop more of what they love.”

Other brands that have recently upsized at Metrocentre include Zara, Footasylum, and EE. The scheme has also recently welcomed Go Outdoors and ProCook to its line-up.

Ben Cox, director at Sovereign Centros from CBRE, said: “Primark is a firm favourite across the retail market as well as within Metrocentre, and this enhanced space really delivers for our visitors. Having been part of the destination for nearly 20 years, this investment highlights Primark’s commitment as an established brand that has had enduring success at Metrocentre.

“This year alone several of our international powerhouse brands have upsized here, a sign of the shared confidence we have with our tenants that they can grow and evolve with us, and ultimately perform.”
