Primark has confirmed it wishes to develop a £40 million retail space at the new thecentre:mk Milton Keynes shopping centre.
This would involve the creation of a 17,500 sq ft property and the enhancement of the nearby market site and would require the removal of Secklow Gate Bridge’s southern section.
A public exhibition on these plans will occur today (July 20th) and tomorrow in Middleton Hall between 10:00 and 18:00 BST.
Within thecentre:mk, there are currently 240 stores, cafes and restaurants, with approximately 27 million visitors attending the building every year.
Anchor stores within the development include Boots, BHS, HMV, Next, the House of Fraser, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.
“Milton Keynes provides an ideal location for Primark as it meets our requirements for store locations and is already a popular destination for our target customer,” a spokesperson for the clothing retailer said.
The representative added that Primark is looking forward to opening its new thecentre:mk store.
