Macerich, owner of Kings Plaza in Brooklyn, New York among other metropolitan area malls, will bring Primark stores to Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, New York, as well as Tysons Corner Center in Northern Virginia. The Green Acres store will replace a recently-closed JCPenney.
“We are delighted to confirm our Tysons Corner Center and Green Acres Mall lease signings as part of our ambitious growth strategy in the United States,” said Tom Meager, group property director for Dublin, Ireland-based Primark. “We’ve seen a great reaction to our latest U.S. openings and are excited to bring Primark’s unique formula of ‘Amazing Fashion at Amazing Prices’ to more customers in new locations throughout the U.S.”
Primark features clothing and accessories for women, men and kids, as well as beauty and homewares, at value prices. Macerich is landlord to six of 12 U.S. stores from Dublin, Ireland-based Primark. The four other Primark stores in Macerich’s portfolio are Danbury (Connecticut) Fair Mall, Freehold (New Jersey) Raceway Mall Kings Plaza, and Fashion District Philadelphia (a two-level flagship store on Market Street now under construction and expected to open later this year).
“Macerich is very pleased to welcome Primark to two more of our high-performing East Coast properties,” said Doug Healey, senior executive vice president, leasing at Macerich. “Primark has experienced first-hand how well its brand connects with shoppers at our destination centers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We are confident that people in Center City, Philadelphia, Long Island and Northern Virginia also will gravitate to Primark’s well-priced, on-trend offerings. Primark is a terrific retailer and Macerich appreciates our close and expanding relationship with this growing brand.”
