Primark to be asked about Chapman's store takeover

A fresh bid to bring discount fashion retailer Primark to Carlisle could see it open a store in Victoria Viaduct.

Have your say

Why do people keep wittering on about the old GPO? Its in private ownership and is much smaller than Primarks requirement of a minimum of 30,000 ft sq'.

What about that Hotel next to the Teco? Surely that is big enough and in the city centre???

I have always thought that Primark should come to Carlisle. Originally, when Woolworths closed, I thought that building would be ideal. I don't think that the Chapmans building is right for a primark though, somehow it would look out of place. the old post office is a good idea though.

Hoopers and the House of Fraser aren't cheap and they certainly don't sell clothes for teenagers or young adults unless your talking about a certain named brand in which case they do if you can afford £50 for a t-shirt

Love Primark but agree with others I will believe it when I see it in Carlisle, Oh well more days outings to Newcastle, Preston and Blackpool. Every Primark carrier bag spotted in the county, never mind Carlisle represents loss of potential city employment and revenue including food outlets and other stores in general.

why doesnt Primark get the empty Peacock shop in the lanes,or what about the empty old post office in warwick road theres a car park to the rear.

What would be good for Primark is if they could get what used to be Peacocks & also have the JJB store. Chapmans would be too small & cramped.
It would bring more shoppers to Carlisle from south Scotland & west/south Cumbria and help to increase revenue
