A Primark clothes store will move into the former Lancaster market hall next year.
The shop will be the city’s biggest retail outlet and work could begin at Easter.
Allied (Lancaster) Limited, owners of Marketgate Shopping Centre, announced this week that Primark Stores have signed a deal to open a 50,000 sq ft shop on the site.
Planning permission has already been granted.
The market closed in September 2012.
