Primark opens a friends-themed cafe in Manchester
Primark Manchester has opened its very own Central Perk café to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends.
Primark Manchester’s Central Perk Café is the first of its kind to open on the UK high street, featuring a New York-inspired menu, exclusive branded products and a chance to take a selfie on that famous sofa (or a similar replica).
Primark’s Director of New Business Development, Tim Kelly 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 whilst also enjoying our amazing fashion at amazing prices in our Manchester store.”
One difference between the fictional Central Perk and this one will be its impact on the environment, as the new version is totally sustainable, using only ethically sourced coffee beans and compostable cups.
In addition , the Primark version of the cafe offers to customers an array of Friends-themed merchandise and memorabilia to buy, including t-shirts and mugs.
