Non-essential retail is set to open from April 12 which means customers can return to their favourite high-street stores after a long lockdown. In an attempt to cope with queues and demand, Primark has said it will be extending its opening hours.

The popular retailer has said that shops will be open for an extra two hours a day on average, typically an hour earlier and later. 

Huge queues are expected due to the retailer not having an online website and shoppers eager to shop once again.

When Primark reopened last year after the first lockdown, shoppers queued from the early hours to avoid queues.

The retailer has 189 stores across the UK, of which 153 are located in England.

Paul Marchant, Primark’s chief executive, said: “It’s great to be back.

“Our stores are fully stocked with fresh new season fashion, all at Primark’s famous amazing prices.

“Between our great value, everyday must-haves and hot new season trend collections, we’ve got everything our customers have been waiting for.”

Stores reopened on December 2, 2020 after the lockdown but a spike in cases meant the retailer had to close its doors soon after.
