A spokesperson for the Abbey Centre said: “We are so excited to announce that our fabulous new Primark will officially open on Tuesday, May 21 at 9.30am.

Work on the new store started in January.

“Leading value fashion retailer Primark, will up-size its current trading space by 3/4 when it moves to the unit formerly occupied by BHS.”

Work on the fit out at the store started on January 14.

The development was first announced in September 2017.

Commenting at the time, Emma Mackenzie, Director at NewRiver REIT said: “We’re thrilled to have secured Primark’s upsize at Newtownabbey, testifying the growing popularity of the Abbey Centre as a convenient fashion retail and leisure destination for the community and beyond.

“Primark is taking the former BHS store and we are working on various other exciting opportunities for the existing Primark store once they vacate.”
