Irish retail chain Primark has expanded its presence in the US with the opening of a fourth and fifth store in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The Pennsylvania store, located in Willow Grove Park Mall, spans 58,600 square feet over two floors, while the New Jersey location, in the Freehold Raceway Mall, counts 50,600 square feet. Both stores will respectively create over 500 jobs.
”These openings mark another important milestone in raising awareness of Primark’s unique formula of amazing fashion, amazing prices,” Primark CEO Paul Marchant said in a statement.
Primark opened its first location in the US in Boston last September and the retailer has plans to open five more stores along the East Coast over the next months.
