The fashion retailer will open the doors of its new flagship in the centre of Bilbao on Thursday 20 May.

Located in the Bizkaia Tower on Gran Via, the new Primark store will create more than 180 jobs in the city. This will be the brand’s second store in Bizkaia and the third in the Basque Country. The first is located in the Ballonti Shopping Centre in Portugalete and was opened in 2008. In November 2012, Primark opened a store in Vitoria at the El Boulevard Shopping Centre.

The arrival of the new store in the city centre has raised expectations for the area and the building where it is located. The store will occupy six floors of the old BBVA tower.
