As a blogger this was possibly one of the most exciting things i’ve been involved in. When I received the email inviting me to the new Primark store, my mouth dropped open and I danced around my room whilst Cassie looked on alarmed that I had finally lost it.
Mainly for 2 reasons.
1) The people of York and the surrounding area have been waiting for a Primark store FOREVER
2) And I freaking LOVE Primark #sorrynotsorry.
I was invited to have a “first glimpse” tour of the store with local radio stations and news reporters, which then led to a speech with a video presentation and the the cutting of the ribbon and waiting for the first customers to be let in. I was sat in the very nicely decked out staff break out area wanting to be taken on the tour of the store by the area manager sounded by breakfast pastries and other refreshments with the room filled with an excited buzz, being asked questions by local reporters and as I gushed about the excitement of what the store opening meant to me. #fangirl
We were shown round the new store, with a detailed and excited explanation of product placements, what was going to be big in the summer fashion wise and what had gone into the renovations of one of the most highly anticipated stores, and guys let me tell you that place is HUGE. I drooled ever the home department, all the love for their bedding and fairy lights. Afterwards we were taken to watch the speeches and the videos, then the staff chanted excitidly before the ribbon was cut and customers poured in which I joined to snag myself some bits [of course] I had eyed up whilst being shown around.
I’d like to thank Primark so so much for letting me a part of something so exciting and for gifting me a gift card that I had fun spending in the new store ;) and of course YouTube haul to follow!
What have you got lined up in your summer wardrobe?
