After years of waiting, Uxbridge shoppers might be delighted to hear that the Primark store in High Street is finally opening on Saturday (March 25).

The highly-anticipated discount fashion shop is opening its doors for the first time on Saturday morning in its brand new store next to KFC.

Primark had originally planned to open the store in time for Christmas 2016 but in October last year it was announced this would be delayed.

The store has been in the works since 2014 but was not officially announced until September 2015.

It's arrival has been praised by shoppers and councillors alike.

Primark have also sent over this picture from the shop before it opened.

We’re likely to never see the tills this quiet again.
