Primark expands store at Intu Merry Hill
Primark has extended its store at Intu Merry Hill by more than 70% after taking additional space in the shopping centre’s former BHS unit.
Other retailers that have upsized their stores at Merry Hill include Topshop, River Island and JD Sports. Meanwhile, Next launched one of its biggest UK stores at the centre earlier this year.
Nick Round, regional managing director at Intu, said: “Primark is a fantastic example of how we’re repositioning underperforming retail space to bring in new and exciting brands or alternatives. At a time when retail is suffering from negative sentiment, this significant investment by Primark demonstrates not only their commitment to Intu Merry Hill but also to physical retail.”
Recent new store openings at Merry Hill have included Timberland, Neon Sheep and Typo. In addition, Footlocker, Sports Direct and Flannels will all open new or expanded stores at the centre later this year.
