The Irish retailer is looking to continue its recent US expansion drive with the launch of two new stores at two Macerich centres, Tysons Corner Center in Virginia and Green Acres Mall in New York.

The new leases further expand Macerich’s relationship with Primark, which currently has three stores in the company’s portfolio: Danbury Fair Mall, Danbury, Connecticut; Freehold Raceway Mall, Freehold, New Jersey and Kings Plaza, Brooklyn. A fourth, a two-level flagship on Market Street in Fashion District Philadelphia is under construction and expected to open later this year.

“Primark has experienced first-hand how well its brand connects with shoppers at our destination centres in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut – and we are confident that people in Center City, Philadelphia, Long Island and Northern Virginia also will gravitate to Primark’s well-priced, on-trend offerings,” said Doug Healey, Senior eExecutive VP, Leasing, Macerich. “Primark is a terrific retailer and Macerich appreciates our close and expanding relationship with this growing brand.”

Primark currently has more than 390 stores, with approximately 16.5 million square foot of selling space, across 13 countries. In March, it opened its 12th US location and first store in the Midwest, on N. State Street in Chicago.
