The World's Largest Primark Store Is Opening This April

Do you love Primark? Would you say that you love it so much that you wish you could stay there all day? Well, now you can.

The world's largest Primark store - complete with three restaurants (one for each meal) - is coming to Birmingham.

That's right. You can get your dinner, as well as some cheap jeans, in the exact same place.

The brand new flagship store is going to be opening up in the Midlands in April, and will have not only the aforementioned dining options, but also things like a personalisation service, chairs to sit on whilst your phone charges, and free WiFi.

It's the budget clothing giant's 187th store to open, and once it does it will have 1,000 employees. That's good for job creation in the area, I guess.

When they say it's going to be big, they mean big, by the way. Like more than 160,000 square feet over five floors big. That's massive.

On top of the more outlandish things, you'll still have all the usual things that you've grown to expect from a normal Primark store. That means clothing, beauty products, cosmetics, and homeware.

Oh, and presumably queues that have to be measured in kilometres.

Some of the staff at the new store have rather cryptically said that there will be 'other surprises' in store that aren't going to be revealed until the grand opening.

If you want to know what they are, you'll have to wait until April 11 to find out.

What we do have now is a load of pictures from inside that show us how the shop is shaping up ahead of the big reveal.

Speaking to Birmingham Live, a spokesperson for Primark said: "We confirm plans to open our new flagship store in Birmingham, on April 11, 2019.

"The store, Primark Birmingham High Street, will be our largest to date and 187 in the UK.

"It will feature the latest contemporary shop fit and an enhanced customer experience across 160,100 sq ft of retail space and five floors of fashion.

"The store will create more than 500 new jobs, while 430 colleagues will transfer from our existing location in Birmingham.

"The store will have the latest trends in womenswear, menswear and kidswear including footwear and accessories, as well as lingerie, beauty and homeware."

They continued: "In addition to amazing fashion at amazing prices, this store will have many new features.

"They will include Primark's largest ever beauty studio for nails, make-up, hair, eyebrows and lashes, a barbers and three unique and amazing dining experiences."

I've always wanted to have an 'amazing dining experience' after buying 10 identical black t-shirts. Can't wait.
