There are calls for Primark to make a move to Newbury town centre.
The retailer's being urged to consider the Berkshire town as a base for one of its stores, after one prominent councillor in the town suggested the idea on social media.
That person was the Deputy Leader of Newbury Town Council, Councillor Miles Evans.
He's told us the town centre is in need of another big business:
"You probably want somebody who is posting a rise in sales, is prominent and will have a big impact on the local area.
"Primark is a name that just keeps coming back to people's minds."
Hi @Primark 👋🏻— Miles Evans (@MilesWEvans) January 17, 2019
It’s pretty tough on UK high streets right now - but you continue to grow and outperform rivals.#Newbury is a brilliant market town with a mix of retail offerings - but we have a large Primark sized hole 😭
What do you reckon? Come on. You know it makes sense.
Councillor Evans says the town centre is particularly an area which is in need of investment:
"If you look at footfall figures, they're slightly down year on year.
"There's obviously the need here to do something - and we know that.
"If you look at other areas with a Primark store you see the difference, so we know it has a big impact."
Primark replied to Councillor Evans' tweet, saying they'll get staff in the Store Development department to consider his idea.
Hi Miles, we are delighted that you think Newbury should have its very own Primark store. We have taken your feedback on board and passed it on to our Store Development Department. 😊— Primark (@Primark) January 17, 2019
