Primark is getting ready to open its first ever store in this European country

Exciting times.

Primark or Penneys as we refer to it is getting ready for more expansion. The retail giant is set to start trading in its 12th country this summer as it opens a store in Slovenia.

This will be the first store in Slovenia for Primark, taking to the countries capital city, Ljubljana.

Penneys first began trading in Dublin in 1969 with the first ever store located on Mary St, Dublin 2. Since then, the company has seen major expansion and is now recognised as both Penneys and Primark, with over 350 stores globally.

The latest move will see the company take to Poland, Czech Slovakia and now, Slovenia too, with leases signed on stores.

Outside of Europe, the retailer is also planning a store for a major shopping destination in Florida. This will mark the company's 10th US store having opened the first one in Boston in 2015 and the latest one in Brooklyn, New York in July 2018.

Next month, Penneys will also open a new store in Belfast. Their last premise burnt down in a freak fire last August and so, the new permanent premise will open on April 16 at Fountain House.

Penneys currently has 46 Irish stores.
