International clothing retailer Primark will open a new store at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois on October 12th, 2023. The store will encompass more than 37,000 square feet of retail selling space. The store is the second in Illinois and is located less than an hour from the city of Chicago.

“With the success of our North State Street store in Chicago, we see a huge demand from Chicagoland shoppers, and are pleased to soon open our doors in Schaumburg, providing even more access to Primark’s high-quality products at prices anyone can get behind,” said Kevin Tulip, President, US. “With this expansion in the market, we anticipate making quite the splash at Woodfield Mall, and are gearing up to surprise and delight shoppers with an opening weekend and a holiday season they won’t soon forget!”

This opening is part of the brand’s plan to reach 60 US stores by 2026. Woodfield will bring the total to 22 US stores and more than 434 stores globally. The 21st Primark location is due to open in Hanover, Md., this Thursday.

Retails start with denim at $10 and T-shirts for $4.50. Categories include apparel, homewares, beauty, and licensed collaborations, including with Disney, Netflix and the NBA.
