Primark in Bluewater to stay open later than any other shop

by Lauren Abbott

Bluewater's new Primark store is to open later than other shops in the centre.

Shoppers heading for the discount chain's much-anticipated new Kent store, which opens for the first time on Wednesday, will have longer to snap up a bargain during the week.

Between Monday and Friday Primark will open until 9.30pm.

The majority of the centre, with the exception of Next and Bluewater's restaurant, bars and cinema, closes at 9pm.

The later opening hours could be music to the ears of many shoppers and busy parents - with the new Greenhithe store set to be open later than any other Primark in Kent.

It was back in September 2017 that Primark first announced plans to open a store in Bluewater.

Primark has leased 60,000 square ft of space between House of Fraser and All Saints, with the remaining 14,000 being used for stock and office functions.

It is a spot once occupied by toy shop Early Learning Centre which has since opened a concession within nearby Mothercare.

And while it's a far cry from the size of Primark's other big spring opening, which is in Birmingham in April where 160,000 sq ft of retail space has seen it dubbed the 'world's biggest Primark', there is still set to be plenty on sale just perfect for Kent families.

Alongside menswear, womenswear and homewear is a much-anticipated childrenswear department.

The new store, which has created 400 jobs, is also set to stock Primark's popular collaborations with Disney - the latest of which is a Dumbo homewear, clothing and beauty range to co-incide with the release of the Disney remake on March 29.
