Yesterday, international fashion retailer Primark officially open its doors at 1033 Market Street, which has recently been rebranded as the Fashion District Philadelphia! This is the 13th location in the US and thanks to the beautiful, new two-level one-stop shop, 350 jobs will be created! With 900,000 square feet you’ll have no trouble social distancing while getting some great deals. RowHome Brenda (www.brendaonbroad.com) stopped by for a quick visit and to pick up some “essentials”…
I stopped by yesterday en route to an evening event, so I missed out on some of the fun that has happening earlier in the day at the store. But DJ Neek Nyce was still there getting the shoppers moving and grooving while buying stuff we didn’t know we needed! We’re lucky here in PA, as the only two other Primarks in the state aren’t that far from Philly- King of Prussia and Willow Grove. But for someone like me who doesn’t have a car and is always trying to kill a bit of time before something in the city, this new location is perfect!
My three-year-old has a birthday party to go to this weekend and I completely forgot to get a gift. So a sweatshirt, a t-shirt and an ABC stamp set went in my basket! I got my three-year-old a sweatshirt too. I can’t wait to bring him back so we can try on some pants!
A little about Primark:
This international retailer offers incredibly affordable and awesome fashion, beauty and homeware. It was founded in Ireland in 1969 and is currently in 14 countries across Europe and North America. Today, it has 397 stores and employs more than 65,000 people! Primark is committed to a better future for people and the planet and is working to become a more sustainable business. This includes joining the United Nations’ Fashion Charter (UNFCCC), supporting the Charter’s net-zero ambition and committing to a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. Alongside this, the business has signed up to Textiles 2030, the WRAP initiative to accelerate the fashion and textile industry’s move towards circularity and system change in the UK. Primark continues to expand its Primark Cares label – clothing and other products which are made using more sustainable materials or manufacturing methods which now account for more than a quarter of all clothing sales.
