Primark recently opened at Cité Europe near Calais

The retailer’s first store located within a Carmila shopping center in France spans two floors and covers a gross leasable area of more than 6,000 sq m.

The opening of Primark represents a milestone in the commercial relaunch of Cité Europe. In 2020, the center was restructured and revamped by Carmila and Carrefour Property, who replaced the nine entrances, refurbished the rest areas, and created a Wi-Fi zone as well as a new 70-square-meter play area, featuring a slide that is nearly 12 meters high. Cité Gourmande, the food services area, was also renovated and now offers more natural light thanks to new glass canopies, a refreshed facade design, and a streamlined layout that flows into the main shopping area. The refurbishment reflects Carmila’s determination to enhance Cité Europe’s appeal to its retailers and visitors. “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Primark. Its opening marks yet another milestone for Cité Europe, which is strengthening its leading position in the region,” commented Marie Cheval, Chief Executive Officer of Carmila.
