Monaghans has a long standing relationship with Primark having worked with them across the UK for over 17 years and supported them in entry to various overseas markets. In our latest opening with Primark Monaghans’ project management team has just delivered a new store closer to home with the opening of the new Primark store in Sheffield.
The new store on The Moor replaces the retailers existing city centre store and with 43,900ft² of retail space, 48 fitting rooms and 28 cash desks, provides extensive ranges of the latest fashion, home, beauty and accessories. The new Sheffield store also benefits from the latest Primark design concepts including new display systems, signature wall graphics and a Trend Room highlighting the very latest products and looks.
The Moor is a major shopping district in Sheffield city centre and an ambitious programme to redevelop and revitalise the area is currently underway. Phase 1 was completed just before Christmas 2013 with the opening of the new indoor Moor Markets and other retail stores, whilst the public realm has also been reinvigorated to create an engaging space with a lively calendar of events and activities.
The opening of the new Primark Sheffield anchors Phase 2 of The Moor regeneration which will also include further retail units, a nine-screen cinema complex and a number of restaurants opening in time for Easter 2017.
At this busy time of pre-Christmas retail openings, Primark Carlisle also recently opened its doors to customers for the first time on 6th October, after having been successfully delivered ahead of schedule by Monaghans’ project managers.
The store was the retailers 172nd in the UK but its first in Carlisle and was enthusiastically received in the city. After being officially opened by the Mayor of Carlisle, Councillor Colin Stothard, the 35,500ft² store was inundated with excited shoppers throughout the day.
Located in The Lanes Shopping Centre, the new store has created 180 new jobs and behind the scenes employees benefit from naturally lit open spaces filled with modern features and comforts including and a ‘Recharge café’ with bright décor, a fully equipped kitchen area and free Wi-Fi.
