Primark has confirmed that its new store at Priory Meadow in Hastings will open next month - half a year later than previously expected.


The value retail chain was due to fill the premises left vacant by BHS in summer 2018, but in June it announced a delay due to unforeseen circumstances.

Its arrival will be crucial for the future of the shopping centre following the closure of Topshop, Topman and River Island last year. Deichmann, Clarks, New Look and Shoezone are also housed there, while JD Sports has recently upgraded to a larger store within the shopping centre.

Primark will officially open its doors in Priory Meadow on 6 March, creating more than 120 jobs.

It will fill more than 30,000 square feet of space with its women’s, men’s and children’s fashion collections, as well as footwear, accessories, lingerie, beauty and homeware products.

Customers can enjoy free Wifi and “recharge” seating areas.

Stuart Mitchell, director at NewRiver, owner of Priory Meadow said: “Primark is a fantastic addition to Priory Meadow and to Hastings.

“Primark perfectly complements the existing fashion retail mix at the centre and provides a broad and affordable range of on-trend wares for our 8.5 annual million shoppers.

He added that news of the Irish clothing giant’s signing has been been “extremely well received by the town”.
