FASHION giant Primark's new and bigger home in the Merry Hill Centre officially opens this week.

The new store officially opens on Thursday, November 29 and takes up two storeys and 60,000 sq ft of retail space.

The new branch of the budget fashion retailer is 70% bigger than its predecessor and includes free wi-fi so shoppers can stay connected.

It includes a designated seating area so that customers can recharge their batteries while shopping.

The bigger store has increased in size by extending into the former BHS premises next to the existing Primark store.

Over 80 additional jobs have been created by the creation of the new store, which follows on from the new arrival of Next in the centre.

The new store joins the 173 Primark branches that operate in the UK
