COVID-19 recovery is on the horizon but the pandemic's impact on sustainability, retail, product development and consumer buying patterns means the denim industry must evolve. Join Rivet on April 20th at 11 am ET for the COVID, One Year Later roundtable.

Irish fast-fashion retailer Primark is set to make its United States debut when it sails into Boston on September 10.

The 46-year-old chain—known as Penneys on its home turf—will take over 77,000 square feet across four floors of the city’s storied Burnham Building, a space once occupied by the Filene’s flagship.

A second stateside store will follow on November 30, at the King of Prussia Mall in Philadelphia, and the company expects to have a total of nine stores across the country by 2016, including locations in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Based in Dublin and owned by Associated British Foods, Primark sells on-trend women’s, men’s and kids’ clothing, footwear and accessories, as well as home goods and bedding, at bargain-basement prices. It currently has 289 stores throughout Europe (44 in Ireland alone).

Seven of Primark’s planned U.S. locations will operate out of leased Sears stores.
