Primark has announced that its store in Westfield Stratford City is set to double in size.

The expansion will see the current store move from two floors to four and increase from 45,100 sq ft to 81,000 sq ft.

Set to be completed in early 2024, the expansion will also create 250 new vacancies, the retail giant announced on Monday (February 20).

Kari Rodgers, Primark retail director UK, said: "After setting out an ambitious investment plan a few months ago, it’s exciting that we can now reveal another one of the stores set to benefit.

"We’re looking forward to extending our offering at Westfield and giving shoppers in Stratford even more of the great style and incredible value they love the most."
