New Primark and KFC branches will open in time for Christmas


Fast food restaurant KFC and budget retailer Primark will open the doors of their new premises in time for Christmas.

KFC, in the High Street, has been closed for a revamp and has taken over a neighbouring unit to double its size.

It will open for business on Monday (December 9).

Crawley’s new Primark store, in County Mall, will open on Wednesday (December 18).

The shop – which measures 37,800 sq ft – has been planned since February 2012 and the budget retailer will hold a 25-year lease.

The shop will open at 9am.
