Founder at Eeesh’s Pieces, Ayesha Foster, commented on her experience: “My pop-up experience was so fun, I feel that Primark was the absolute perfect place for my brand to get my name out there and find more like-minded people who love my products. I’ve sold online for the past four years, but nothing can replicate that moment of personal interaction with my customers – which really is the beauty of the high street.”

The pop-up shops can be found on the second floor of Primark Newcastle.
