Primark places gagging orders on some landlords amid rental negotiations

Primark London

Primark has reportedly agreed to pay a select group of landlords ahead of June’s quarterly rent day, but has asked some recipients to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

The fashion retailer is in talks with landlords ahead of reopening stores across England on June 15 and the next quarterly rent day of June 24, and is understood to have agreed payments in a number of cases.

However, according to The Times, Primark has asked some landlords across the 189 stores it operates in the UK who will receive payment to sign NDAs.
