North West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham has visited the discount clothes store Primark in Lynn High Street.
Mr Bellingham said that in the three years that Primark have been in that location it has gone from strength to strength, increasing turnover and staff numbers.
He said he was also very impressed with the training programme for young people, their emphasis on corporate social responsibility and the very high standards they set across the store.
He said: “I was delighted to meet many of their Lynn staff, and it was good to know that a well known national chain decided to take on a key store in our High Street – especially at a time when there has been so much emphasis on out of town shopping.”
