The much-anticipated new Primark store at Bluewater opened this week with hundreds of people waiting to get inside.

Bluewater itself confirmed there were just over 1,000 people waiting outside when the complex opened at 9am.

The new Primark is the company's 187th store in the UK and has created over 400 new jobs for the local area.

The store is over two floors and covers 46,000 square feet of retail space.

Not only this but there is free wi-fi throughout the store and even "recharge" seating areas.

The new store also boasts late night shopping hours Monday to Friday.

Primark’s retail director Simon Gibbs said: “We’re delighted to open a new store in the Bluewater Shopping Centre, bringing amazing fashion at amazing prices to the people of Kent and surrounding areas.

"This opening brings the number of Primark stores to 187 in the UK and 366 internationally, and we look forward to opening more new stores and creating more new jobs in the UK and beyond.”
