Primark will re-open its stores in England on Wednesday 2 December with extended trading hours in all stores, to cater for the anticipated higher customer demand ahead of the festive season and to help safely reduce queues by spreading shopping hours over a longer period of time.
Primark stores located in retail parks and major shopping centres will trade until 10pm at a minimum, with some stores trading as late as midnight. 11 stores will open for 24 hours from 7am on 2 December right through until closing time on 3 December. All other stores across England will trade until at least 8pm on weekdays until 23 December.
Nothing matters more to Primark than the safety and wellbeing of its employees and customers and in line with government guidance, all stores continue to have extensive safety measures in place. This includes strict social distancing protocols, limits on the number of customers allowed in store, hand sanitisation stations on entry, Perspex screens or cubicles at tills, the use of face masks in-store and increased in-store cleaning.
Primark CEO, Paul Marchant, said: “We are delighted to re-open our stores in England on 2 December, with longer shopping hours to give our customers more time to safely do their festive shopping. We have everything this season that our customers expect from Primark, including our famous Christmas jumpers, festive pyjamas and much, much more. All of our extensive safety measures remain in place to help ensure shopping at Primark is an enjoyable, safe experience for everyone.”
