International retailer Primark opens at Roosevelt Field mall in Garden City



The popular fast-fashion retailer Primark is now fully involved in New York City and Long island.

Founded in Ireland in 1969 under the Penneys brand, Primark has opened at the Roosevelt Field mall in Garden City, with soon to follow in Jamaica, Queens, and Kings Plaza in Brooklyn.

These three New York openings were designed to help kick-off Primark’s U.S .growth plan to reach 60 stores by 2026, according to an announcement.

At 44,290 square feet, the Roosevelt Field spot is the brand’s 409th store and 14th in the U.S.

The city stores are set to open in December.

“We’re excited for the future for Primark in New York, as our current stores have shown the important role we can play in the region as an affordable and inclusive retailer, bringing back the allure of brick-and-mortar,” said Kevin Tulip, the company’s president. “Primark offers shoppers affordability without sacrificing quality.

“Whether they are shopping for their own essentials, the latest trend pieces, or fulfilling loved ones’ holiday wish lists, we have something for everyone in the family and we are committed to delivering the best value on the high street.”

The three new stores will bring Primark’s presence in the New York City region to five, with another in Staten Island. Primark has also signed a lease for a new store at Queens Center in Queens., and its website lists a Green Acres Mall location in Valley Stream as “coming soon.”
