Primark has boosted employment in a suburban Massachusetts city with the opening of its latest store in the US.

The fashion retailer's new shop at the South Shore Plaza in Braintree will be the third of its kind in the US state.

Following the New York launch earlier this year, Primark now has eight stores across the US in total.

The budget brand, which trades as Penneys in Ireland, boasts over 335 stores in 11 countries worldwide.

Now shoppers in the Greater Boston area can get access to Primark’s signature "Amazing Fashion, Amazing Prices" at the 41,000 sq ft store.

Like other US stores, customers have access to free Wi-Fi and "recharge" seating areas.

Primark has plans to open two additional US locations; at American Dream (East Rutherford, N.J.) and Kings Plaza (Brooklyn, N.Y.).
