Associated British Foods retail division: store numbers worldwide 2008-2019

Primark has increased its global presence since 2008, and doubly so. As of 2019, there are 373 Primark store locations worldwide. The clothing retailer’s biggest expansion happened between 2016 and 2017, adding 30 stores to its portfolio including new locations in new markets such as the United States.  

Low prices, high revenue

  Primark is a value retailer, meaning the company sets its clothing prices at the lower end and does not sell online. Over the past eleven years, the retailer delivered impeccable revenue figures, rendering it the retailer Associated British Foods’ most successful division. Between 2017 and 2018, the revenue of Primark went from 7 to 7.4 billion British pounds.  

No stopping Primark

  In terms of its share in the UK apparel retail market, Primark currently holds second place. While the value retailer was beaten to the crown by Marks & Spencer, Primark’s share in the market has grown tremendously since 2008, unlike its closest rival’s. This led to Primark jumping from fifth to second place with a strong claim to a leading position.
