Primark, one of Europe’s leading retailers, has announced that its new store at Citypark Ljubljana will open its doors in 2019. This will be Primark’s first store in Slovenia.

The new store in Ljubljana will feature the latest trends in women’s, men’s and children’s fashions including footwear, accessories, as well as lingerie and homeware. The store’s design and layout will build on Primark’s latest contemporary shop fit.

This store opening will also create local employment opportunities. Employees in ‘back of house’ will enjoy open spaces designed with modern features and comforts such as a ‘Recharge café’ with a kitchen area and bright décor. This space is designed to feel like a home away from home for employees.

Stephen Mullen, Primark’s Retail Director for Republic of Ireland and Southern Europe said: “We are delighted to announce that we will be opening our first store in Slovenia next year, in this fantastic location at CityPark Ljubljana. We are looking forward to offering our amazing fashion at amazing prices to customers in Ljubljana and the surrounding areas”.

Confirming the conclusion of the contract, Marcus Wild, Chief Executive Officer of SES, said "It is now official that Primark will enter Slovenia. SES is delighted that Primark have chosen Citypark as their first location to open a store in this market”.

Toni Pugeli, Citypark Manager said: "We are excited that Primark will soon be opening in Slovenia and that Citypark will be the first shopping centre in Slovenia to host this great brand”.

Citypark Expects Increased Number of Shoppers Because of Primark's Arrival
As the biggest shopping centre in Slovenia's capital, stretching over more than 53,000 square metres, Citypark is the trendsetter. "Slovenian shoppers are eagerly awaiting for Primark to open. Citypark is known for its rich selection of diverse fashion brands and its new acquisition will further enhance the status of Ljubljana as a cross-border shopping destination," said Toni Pugelj, Citypark Manager, “Primark's arrival to Slovenia means a new fashion milestone both for Citypark and for Slovenia as a whole”.
