Shopper’s paradise: The Primark is located in Birmingham city centre and set over five floors
The mega-store opened in April and has seemingly become a tourist destination in its own right with shoppers flocking from as far away as Scotland.
One travel firm operating a coach trip to the store is Yorkshire Rose Holidays. Its next available tour is on Saturday, October 19, departing from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, for £14 per seat.
While Woods Travel, in Bognor Regis, is selling tickets for £25 for adults on its coach tour to Primark for Sunday, September 29.
And if you live in Scotland and fancy making a night of it, Thorne Travel Experience is advertising a trip to the store with a stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Birmingham city centre on Saturday, November 2. It costs £115 per person and departs from Kilwinning.
The flagship Primark boasts five floors of fashion as well as a Disney cafe, a stylish hair salon and barbers and a custom T-shirt printing lab.
The Disney cafe, which features interactive tables for children to play with, is one of three restaurants on the site; the others being the Mezz restaurant and the Primarket cafe.
There is also a Duck & Dry Xpress, which is Primark’s largest ever beauty studio for nails, make-up, hair, eyebrows and lashes
Shoppers can also use phone charging facilities and connect to the free WiFi.
Also on site is Duck & Dry Xpress, Primark’s largest ever beauty studio for nails, make-up, hair, eyebrows and lashes, as well as Mills barbers for male customers.
The store is officially the largest fashion retail store in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
