Primark: store numbers worldwide 2022, by country
Primark reigns in the British Isles
Primark trades as Penneys in the Republic of Ireland, where the fashion retailer had the highest number of stores after Spain and the UK in 2022. Yet Primark’s growth in Ireland has been stagnant since 2014. In the meantime Primark both upped its number of stores in the UK. The net worth of Primark stores in the UK hit a new high of over 1.1 billion British pounds in 2021.
Not quite international
Despite a growing number of stores in Europe, Primark lags behind other UK fashion retailers, such as Next in terms of its regional market scope and presence. Primark had opened its first transatlantic store in 2015 in Boston, but US expansion is still limited to thirteen stores as of September 2022. These were the company's only stores outside of Europe.
