Primark Looks to Create a Footprint in the North Carolina

Primark, with over 400 stores in 16 countries, has strategically expanded its presence in the United States since opening its flagship location in Boston in 2015. Kevin Tulip, President of Primark in the U.S., shared insights into the company’s journey and its thoughtful expansion plans.

  • “Our success outside of Primark’s existing North-East footprint has shown that our formula of fashion and homewares at great value and low prices is resonating more widely. We recognize a gap in southern states which Primark is uniquely positioned to fill.”

The Concord Mills location, spanning more 30,000 square feet and situated next to Entrance 3, will offer a wide array of products, from clothing and beauty items to home decor. Tulip emphasized that Primark’s commitment is rooted in everyday affordability for everyone, ensuring that sustainable and stylish fashion is accessible to all.

Committed to Sustainability

In an interview with Cabarrus Weekly, Kevin Tulip shed light on Primark’s commitment to sustainability. He explained, “Primark Cares is the company’s commitment to doing better every day by making more sustainable products every one can afford, reducing its impact on the planet,” said Tulip. This commitment includes using recycled or sustainably sourced materials, designing recyclable clothing, and halving carbon emissions across the value chain. Primark’s Sustainable Cotton Program, launched in 2013, stands out as a leading initiative, training farmers to adopt sustainable farming practices.

Primark’s commitment to providing an unparalleled in-store experience is evident in its approach to brick-and-mortar retail.

  • Tulip emphasized, “The Primark business model is built on our choice not to offer e-commerce, resulting in our ability to offer access to quality items at low prices.” The company’s new website format allows customers to explore products available in their specific location, creating a seamless shopping experience.

For those curious about the latest fashion trends, Tulip revealed that essential items for men, women, and kids, along with licensed products like Disney and NBA gear, continue to be top performers. The recent Rita Ora x Primark collection, with prices starting at just $5, has garnered significant attention.

Kevin Tulip invites residents of Cabarrus County and visitors to Concord Mills to experience the uniqueness of Primark. He asserts, “Primark is not like any other store you’ve shopped at in the past, and we are confident that if you come visit us, you are going to leave with the majority of your holiday shopping list complete and room left in your budget to get yourself a holiday treat as well.”

Engaging with the Local Community

As Primark steps into Cabarrus County, it aims to become more than just a retail destination. The grand opening weekend at Concord Mills is a testament to Primark’s commitment to engaging with the local community. Tulip expressed his excitement, saying, “The grand opening kicks off with a DJ and giveaways for our first customers in line. Primark fans will be cheered on by The TopCats, the Carolina Panther Cheerleaders, and Wild Roots Coffee is offering free drinks for patrons while supplies last.”

So, mark your calendars, fashion aficionados! Primark’s grand opening at Concord Mills Mall is not just an event; it’s a fashion extravaganza that promises affordable style, sustainability, and a memorable shopping experience for all. Don’t miss out on the PRIMANIA!
