Primark Opening in Ljubljana – Special Bus from Croatia to be Introduced

Lauren Simmonds

For a long time now, a trip to the wildly successful and ultra-cheap Primark meant heading to Graz, Austria, for people from Croatia. While a trip from let’s say, Zagreb, to this Austrian city in particular isn’t much of a hassle, it shouldn’t take such a journey to grab a bargain or two, or ten.

For some time, talk of Primark opening its doors in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, which is much, much closer to the Croatian border and to the Croatian capital, has been milling its way around various media portals. Details of Primark taking to Ljubljana were always somewhat vague, with dates and times conveniently missing or being the subject of guesswork from journalists and readers.

Thankfully, the cloak of mystery surrounding Primark ”next door” has finally been lifted and as Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 10th of June, 2019, Slovenia’s brand new store is set to open its doors on the 13th of June at 10:00. It seems that those drives to Graz from Zagreb are now over for most people.

As was noted by Toni Pugelj, Ljubljana’s City Park director, the shopping centre which will include the much loved Primark, which is an Irish fashion retailer, is counting heavily on customers from both Croatia and Italy in addition to local, Slovenian customers. Primark can be found in many European countries, with the United Kingdom boasting the largest store in Europe and indeed the world (Birmingham).

It’s worth remembering the long and boring drives to the biggest Primark in Croatia’s nearer vicinity, in the charming town of Graz, and now, in all likelihood, many bargain-hungry Croats will just take a quick trip across the border to satisfy their lust for cheaper fashion, something which Croatia lacks enormously.

But that’s not all, a Croatian bus operator has already announced a special bus line that will depart from Dugo Selo and Zagreb to Ljubljana, which will cost 100 kuna. The line will begin operations on June the 22nd, just a few days after Primark’s opening.
