Primark has announced it is set to begin work on a huge extension to its flagship store in Belfast next week.
It comes as reports reveal that the budget clothing chain is continuing to flourish – despite the recession and tough trading conditions facing other retailers.
Primark is expecting staff numbers to rise by 100 as a result of the new extension.
The development will be one of the largest retail builds in the city since Victoria Square opened eight years ago.
It’s understood the new extension will be around 46,000 sq ft in size.
A spokeswoman for Primark confirmed work was due to start on the new store. Bennett Construction and Tusker Demolition have been appointed to start work.
