It is Primark... but not as you know it.

The popular department chain will reopen four of its Northern Ireland stores on Thursday - almost a week after the Stormont Executive gave the green light to the resumption of 'non-essential' retail on our high streets.

Outlets in Belfast - on Castle Street and Fountain House in the city centre - Londonderry and Omagh, all of whom have street access, will raise their shutters, with shopping centre-based units in Ballymena, Lisburn, Newry, Newtownabbey and Newtownards following suit on Monday.
