Primark confirms commitment to Spain

primark to open store in cordoba

VALUE clothing chain Primark will continue its expansion in Spain, despite closing two stores in the country in less than six months.

The Irish fashion retailer, which now has 39 stores in Spain, closed its Zaragoza store at the end of January when the mall in which it was based shut down. While other stores sought new locations, Primark said it had no plans to do so at present.

The store was not the first to close its doors, last autumn the store in Dolce Vita shopping centre, in La Coruña, was shut citing declining footfall.

It’s not all bad news however, and Primark said in a statement it still views Spain as a key market.

It is due to open a new store in Tenerife this weekend (February 27) and there are plans to increase the number further this year.

The 3,000 square metre store is located in the Meridian Mall, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and has created 130 new jobs.

The company opened its first store just outside of Madrid in 2006, and since then Spain has grown to be the company’s second largest market in terms of number of stores, after the UK and Ireland.
