Primark opens first Central Perk Café

Manchester Primark has opened a fully branded Central Perk Café in partnership with Warner Bros. at its Manchester store, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the US TV show Friends. Central Perk Café at Primark Manchester is exclusive to fashion retail in the UK and the first to open on the UK high street.

The café features a New York-inspired menu, exclusive branded products and an opportunity to get a photo on ‘the’ sofa. It also uses compostable cups and ethically-sourced coffee beans as part of its Primark Cares initiative.

Tim Kelly, Primark’s director of new business development, said: “We are hugely excited to be bringing the first branded Central Perk Café in fashion retail in the UK to the British high street. Customers can relax and have fun there, while also enjoying our amazing fashion at amazing prices in our Manchester store.”

After visiting the outlet, customers can continue their experience in a Friends shopping area, where they can find everything from clothing to mugs.
