Primark cited “technical issues” to be the reason for the delay and said it was “working with the developer and relevant authorities to ensure that we can open our doors as soon as possible.”
These “technical issues” are also holding back openings for other new tenants at Kings Plaza, including Zara, Burlington, and J.C. Penny.
“The bulk of the construction is complete,” Dawn Simon, the Area Senior Marketing Manager at Kings Plaza said. “We are in the final stages of the grand openings.”
The stores are now expected to open by the end of June, Simon said, with the exception of Zara, which is aiming for the end of summer.
In the meantime, Primark will be providing its employees with additional training.
“Some employees will be redeployed to Staten Island or other stores for shifts where needed. We will confirm the opening date in the coming weeks and look forward to welcoming customers to our new store soon.
