The newly-extended Primark store in Ipswich town centre will officially open tomorrow.

Work to expand the shop into the former Gap unit next door started in April and has seen Primark double in size.

A Primark spokeswoman said: “We look forward to offering our customers in the area an improved and enjoyable shopping experience alongside amazing fashion at amazing prices.”

Ipswich has been welcoming dozens of new names and refurbished stores to the high street, with the renovation of the Buttermarket centre and re-branding of Sailmakers, previously Tower Ramparts.

  • Hahaa Dozens - I walked through town for the first time in a while - and they are trying - but the only new shops I saw were new Pound Shops and now the big news is Primark has gotten bigger - great! more floor space for the sweat shop produced clothes to be strewn across
