Primark’s newest UK store opens to the public at Rushmere Shopping Centre

Rushmere’s latest new store openings create more than 170 new jobs and promise more variety and value for excited shoppers as Primark and Poundland arrive in time for Christmas

Popular fashion retailer Primark officially has officially opened its doors at Rushmere Shopping Centre, thrilling thousands of visitors who streamed through its doors for a first look at the stunning new store.

Primark confirmed it was locating its new store at Rushmere Shopping Centre in March and following a major refurbishment of a 30,800 sq. ft space in the former Debenham’s unit as part of a £6 million investment, it finally opened at 10am on Friday.

The new Primark Craigavon-Rushmere store follows the retailer’s recent announcement to invest £140 million in its UK business over the next two years, by growing its store estate in addition to store upgrades and refurbishments planned for existing stores across the UK.

Hundreds of shoppers queued in the dark to front the long queues for the official opening which was attended by senior representatives from Primark, the Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Councillor Paul Greenfield, and Rushmere Shopping Centre Manager Martin Walsh.
