Primark commenced fit-out in early April with works due to complete in early August.

The retailers have now confirmed the store will open on Wednesday August 24.

When it opens, the 31,000 sq ft Primark will be the largest store in Marketgate and the biggest anchor store in the city. Primark is expected to help drive increasing footfall into Marketgate and enhance Lancaster city centre’s overall shopping mix.

A Primark spokesperson said: “We look forward to opening a new Primark store in Lancaster and offering amazing fashion at amazing prices for all the family.”

The store, which will be housed in Lancaster’s former Market Hall, has caused controversy in the past among local businesses and residents after delays in its opening date.
