Phil Goodman, centre director at Glasgow Fort, added: "Primark will be a brilliant addition to the centre, offering our visitors a fantastic range of everyday essentials and trending items for all the family.

"We’re already home to some of the UK’s biggest brands and it’s great to be able to confirm another major announcement - we’re looking forward to the doors opening at the new store."

The new Primark, which will be its fourth in Glasgow, is set to open in early 2025 and will have around 33,000 sq ft of retail space across two floors. 

It will offer a variety of much-loved Primark basics and trending items across womenswear, menswear, kidswear, beauty and home.

It comes as the opening date for Zara's new flagship store at Glasgow Fort was revealed this week.

The popular Spanish retailer will open the doors to its new shop at 9am on Thursday, November 2.
