Irish deep-discount fashion retailer Primark is expanding its presence in the U.S., opening a ninth U.S. store in Brooklyn.

Primark, which is owned by Dublin-based Associated British Foods PLC, sells women’s, men’s and children’s wear items as well as home goods, beauty products and gifts exclusively through brick-and-mortar stores with no online presence, a strategy the company says helps keep prices low.
