Budget clothing chain Primark are again being wooed by the City Council in an attempt to a long awaited store opening in Carlisle.
So what you might say? Well to a man in his thirties, Primark is the staple fashion hub for a man in his middle years whose primary concern is easy wipe shirts and comfortable cargo pants with a draw string.
The issue seems to be, according to Primark’s deputy managing director – Seamus Halford that they cannot find anywhere quite big enough to move into. Despite the general economic rot which has set into the city centre and closure of several large stores and hotels.
They need in the region of 30,000 square meters and to put this in context an average football pitch is 5,000 square meters, so that is a lot of area although split over a couple of floors should mean somewhere in the town centre could support them.
Until this day comes, ASDA George will continue to do good business on less than fussy males looking for cheap comfortable clothing.
