After months of delays, we can all finally rejoice in the knowledge that the world’s biggest Primark will be opening its doors on 11 April in Birmingham.

This will mark the 187th Primark store to open up on UK high streets, showing just how big the company’s impression on the marketplace has grown. As expected, there are a great deal of hopes and ambitions for this new flagship store, and so here’s an idea of what you’ll find this April...


It’s going to be huge

Okay, it’s an obvious point but yes, this megastore will be 160,000 sq ft and located in Birmingham’s former Pavilions shopping centre.

Jobs galore!

A bigger shop obviously means more jobs. They will be hiring around 900 people and 430 of which will be transferring from the current Primark in Birmingham city centre which is only down the street.
