As with other Primark stores, the new Warsaw site included extensive measures in place to help safeguard employees and customers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Primark’s store at Galeria Młociny features women’s, men’s and children’s fashion collections, including footwear and accessories, as well as lingerie, homeware and product ranges made of sustainable, recycled, and organic materials.
Meanwhile, the “back of house” space for shopfloor staff features open spaces and features “Recharge café” with a kitchen area and modern décor.
“We are delighted to open the doors of our first store in Poland, our 13th international market, and to offer our amazing fashion at amazing prices to customers from Warsaw and beyond,” Primark chief executive Paul Marchant said.
“We are incredibly proud to see our growth into new markets continue across Europe and I would like to thank all our colleagues who have been working hard to ensure we are ready to welcome our customers to shop in a safe environment for all.”
The opening in Galeria Młociny brings the total number of Primark stores to 382 across 13 international markets.
Primark first entered the Central and Eastern Europe market in 2019 with the opening of a store in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The value retailer has announced further expansion plans with a second store planned for Poland, in Poznan, in 2021, plus two stores in Czech Republic this year and in 2022, and a store in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2022.
