Primark to close Leeds store

Primark will close one of its two stores in Leeds in March.

The value retailer said it is closing the store on The Headrow and will offer staff a transfer to the nearby store in Trinity shopping centre or another nearby store.

A spokeswoman said: “Primark has decided to consolidate its presence in Leeds city centre by developing its store at the Trinity shopping centre.”

The company said the Trinity store, which opened in March 2013, offers customers a “broad product range in a single destination within a newer, larger store environment, and modern work environment for employees”.

The spokeswoman confirmed no other store closures are planned in the UK.

The retailer reported sales were 15% ahead of last year for the 16 weeks to January 3, driven by increased selling space and high sales densities in new stores.

Primark has not yet responded to Drapers’ request for comment on the store closure.
