The discount fashion retailer will open its doors in the former BHS store on St Stephens Street on Wednesday.

It announced in December that it would move into the building while work continues on the extension to its current premises on Haymarket.

It hopes to move out of its temporary home and into the newly-extended premises in time for summer 2019.

The St Stephens Street building has been vacant since August 2016 when BHS closed the last of its stores following the company’s collapse.

The sight of maintenance workers in the shop in December caused a stir, before Roche Chartered Surveyors revealed Primark would be the site’s new temporary tenant.

Primark’s Haymarket store will close on Tuesday.
