Primark currently has two stores in the US, in Boston and Pennsylvania. It is planning to open six more this year, one more in Pennsylvania, two in Massachusetts, one in New Jersey, one in New York and one in Connecticut. They are also expecting to open their ninth store at American Dream as part of the mall opening in 2017.
At the moment, they are remodelling their UK headquarters, based in Reading, which also houses a Primark store on its ground floor. Sales at Primark are expected to be up 7.5% at constancy currency, driven by their increased retail selling space.
Primark is launching its first Italian store in April, North-West of Milan and one in Florence in a mall by Summer 2017.
