A discount fashion store has confirmed plans to open a branch in Bluewater.

Primark announced plans this morning, September 21, for a store at the Greenhithe shopping centre.

A spokesman for the retailer said: "Primark will be opening a store in Bluewater, which is currently scheduled for completion in 2019."

The news follows a recent announcement that Kate Spade New York will be opening a store for "luxury accessories" in time for Christmas.

Primark has stores in Dartford and in Gravesend, but shoppers have long wanted a branch in Bluewater.

It's reported that the store will be in place of Early Learning Centre on Upper Thames Walk, with the children's shop moving inside Mothercare in the Lower Thames Walk.
