A high street giant plans to carry out a £500,000 upgrade of its Aberdeen store.
Primark Stores is looking to transform its shop on Aberdeen’s Union Street.
The firm, which was founded in the Republic of Ireland in 1962 and now has stores around the world, has applied for a building warrant from Aberdeen City Council for the work.
According to planning documents, the firm – which has its UK head office in Reading – is looking to plough £552,000 into the Granite City shop.
If approved, the application states it would be for the “refurbishment of the retail store”.
Chesterfield firm Whittam Cox Architects is acting as the agent on the potential refurbishment.
Primark has been at its Union Street location for more than 10 years. The firm was originally in the Bon Accord Centre but moved in 2006 to its current site.
It took over the former Littlewoods premises which closed with the loss of more than 100 jobs.
The city council has set a target date of March 13 for a decision on the building warrant for Primark.
A Primark spokesman said: As Primark operates under a public company, we cannot comment on store plans.”
