PRIMARK is set to open a new store in Salisbury in September.
The cut-price fashion giant will open doors to the two-storey shop, in the Old George Mall, at premises previously occupied by BHS.
Coming in at a whopping 29,700 sq ft, 100 new jobs will be created, the retailer said. The exact opening date will be confirmed nearer the time.
Primark Salisbury store manager, Christopher Carter, said: “Our construction team has been busy getting the store ready over the last few months, and now it’s time for the next step on our journey.
“Primark is an amazing place to work and we’re looking forward to welcoming 100 new members to the family over the coming months as we prepare for launch in September.
“We know that Salisbury shoppers have been eagerly awaiting the opening, so we can’t wait to welcome them to store.”
The Salisbury store will be Primark’s first new store opening in England in more than two years – the chain’s 192nd shop.

In addition, staff enjoy a year-round 15% discount on Primark products, as well as benefits such as an employee assistance programme and pension package.
