OMG for HMV. 9000sqm of fashion oxygen was injected into the East side of Oxford Street with the opening of the retailers second flagship store in central London on the site of what was once HMV.

One year on, and with an extension looming the Primark band-wagon shows little sign of slowing, and why should it. The Oxford Street second store proving to be a watershed moment bringing tears to the eyes of competitors across Europe.

The design marked a more contemporary move from video walls, walk-through entrance tunnels with wall to wall graphics, the continued evolution away from impractical table displays to hanging garments and a variety of display developments inspired by the relatively new visual merchandising department.

And so the empire grows across now established markets in Spain and Portugal and through the still largely unexplored but potentially massively profitable cities of Germany and continental Europe with plans to cross the Atlantic. A watershed in deed!

For Penneys in Ireland read Primark for the rest of us, but the fashion, fun and fabulous prices are familar to all. However here Penneys show another facet with the structural work not only creating a striking escalator and lift well but also used to open up original ironwork and glass roofing that add unexpected character and charm to an operator admired for its ruthless commercialism.
