Rugby needs a Primark - petition launched

We've had a flood of big names come to Rugby since the new-look Elliott's Field opened '“ but Primark has not been one of them and now a petition has been launched to try to get the fashion chain here.

A recent out-of-town addition to Primark's empire - Banbury's Gateway retail park. NNL-160711-093359001

The petition has been launched on the website by Beth C, inviting people to sign up and support the following statement: “Rugby is a city which is growing really fast and has lack of clothing stores. It would be very useful for this city and his population having a store like Primark.”

At the time of writing the petition has attracted nearly 150 signatures.

Coventry has a massive Primark in the old Owen Owen building but the company continues to grow – this time last year it opened in the new Gateway retail park in Banbury, pictured here, a development not unlike Elliott’s Field.
