Primark Is Coming To Salisbury

Primark is coming to Salisbury and is opening a store at the old BHS building in the Old George Mall. I’m sure it will be very popular.

Whenever the Salisbury Journal post anything about a new shop opening , you can guarantee that someone will mention the need for a Primark in Salisbury. They even published an article to inform their readers that the store really was coming to the city, however it was posted on April 1st.

I imagine that the reason that some people are so keen to have a Primark in Salisbury is that the discount chain sells cheap clothing. In these tough economics times it would be great to be able to buy the latest fashion or children’s clothing at a reasonable price.

The nearest store is in 22 – 28 Above Bar Street, Southampton (SO14 7DQ) and is only 25 miles away. It’s less than an hour by car or a short train journey. It’s also a good chance to visit the Westquay Shopping Centre.

Opening Hours

The opening hours for most of the stores is likely to be from 09:00 – 18:00 although some may stay open for longer. Sunday opening hours are reduced because of trading laws but they may open 30 minutes earlier to allow browsing only.

Buying Primark Clothes Online

It would be tempting to think that you could order goods from the Primark website and have them delivered. Sadly this is not the case as the do not offer online shopping. I think the reason that they don’t offer delivery is that it would bump up the cost of cheap clothing. They would far rather you visited one of their stores..

Will We Have A Primark In Salisbury

The problem is that, although Salisbury is a city as it has a cathedral, the population is fairly small compared to other cities. Rumour has it that Primark would only open a new store in a city with a population of over 100,000 people although Salisbury only has around 45,000. I just don’t think that it would be financially viable for them to open a shop here..

So there you have it.. I’m afraid that I don’t think we will have a Primark in Salisbury anytime soon.

#Update# It seems that Primark really are coming to Salisbury and are opening a new store. They will be moving into the old BHS building in the Old George Mall.
