UK discount clothing retailer Primark said it planned to invest £140m, including the opening of four new stores and the creation of at least 850 jobs as it looks to increase footfall during the cost-of-living crisis.
 
Parent company Associated British Food will make the investment over the next two years in its UK operations.
 
The retailer has been boosting its in store offering in recent years by adding beauty treatments, home ranges and cafes to shops. Collaborations with Greggs are in Primark shops in Birmingham and London.
 
UK & European markets fell slightly to close out an upbeat week, as the U.S. Federal Reserve’s latest meeting minutes added to expectations that monetary policy tightening may slow down.
 
The dollar crept higher across the board in a quiet session but remained near multi-month lows as the prospect of the Federal Reserve moderating the pace of its policy tightening weighed on the U.S. currency.
 
Oil prices were stable in thin market liquidity, closing a week marked by worries about Chinese demand and haggling over a Western price cap on Russian oil.
 
Gold prices retreated as the U.S. dollar regained ground, after the non-yielding metal posted gains in the previous three sessions on expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve would scale back its rate-hiking stance.
