Primark’s expansion trail continues, as the value retailer plans to move into BHS’s Bath store.
The high street chain will open a store on the 36,300 sq ft site of the current Bhs store in the middle of next year.
The BHS store will continue to trade until January.
The move follows last week’s news that Primark is expected to take on the BHS unit in Canterbury next year. Arcadia owner Sir Philip Green sold off 10 BHS leases to Primark in 2010.
Primark’s market share in the UK clothing market increased from 3% in 2007 to 4.1% in 2012, according to Euromonitor.
