Primark, a global apparel retail chain, will be opening its first Long Island store this week at Roosevelt Field in Garden City. 

The new 44,290-square-foot Primark store is slated to open at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17 and will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. The space was formerly occupied by Bloomingdale’s Furniture. 

The grand opening event will feature performances by Hip Hop Dreamz and DJ Jessica James, gift card giveaways and holiday-themed dreams. 

Primark offers a wide assortment of clothing for women, men and children, as well as beauty products, housewares and accessories with a focus on affordability. 

Founded in 1969 as Penney’s in Dublin, Ireland, the chain still operates 36 stores there under that original name. Primark now has more than 400 stores across the United Kingdom and Europe. Its new Roosevelt Field location will be Primark’s 14th in the U.S., where it plans to grow to 60 stores within the next five years. The company will soon be opening a second Long Island store at the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream.
