Signs for a new Primark store in a Suffolk town centre have been put in place ahead of the grand opening. 

Excitement around the new shop in the Arc shopping centre in Bury St Edmunds has been growing in recent weeks. 

When Primark announced it was taking over the former Debenhams unit last November it said the new store should be open by the end of 2023.

However signage now states the store will be opening in early 2024. 

Last month a job advert for a new store manager appeared on the company's website.

The 33,000 sq ft new store is also expected create about 90 jobs for the store, although only the store manager position has been advertised so far.

The basement of the former Debenhams will be transformed into a new cinema. 

The cinema is expected to be open by early next year.
