A NEW PENNEYS store has opened its doors in the United States.

The new branch, operating under the Primark name, is situated in the King of Prussia shopping mall on the outskirts of Philadelphia in the state of Pennsylvania.

The store was opened earlier today by the Irish ambassador to the United States Dr Anne Anderson.

Speaking about the move, the company’s CEO Paul Marchant, said: “Our first mall opening comes with added excitement as we approach the holiday shopping season with our offering of amazing fashion at amazing prices for all the family.

This follows other major international openings in the last six months for the store in Madrid and Boston.
