Primark was forced to close on January 4 once again when the third lockdown came into play. In the days leading up to its closure, Primark stores across the UK were rammed and had long queues of loyal customers desperate to stock up on Primark products before its closure. After almost two months without visiting the store, Primark staff and customers want to know when Primark will reopen. Express.co.uk reveals everything you need to know about the reopening of Primark. 

Earlier this month, Primark’s Twitter account asked followers to explain how much they miss getting their shopping fix.

The retailer is known for its low prices and it seems many fans of the shop are keen to get back on the floor to fill their baskets once again.

One replied to Primark to say: “I’m down to my last pair of pants, but at least I have lots of half opened bottles of wine!”

Another joked: “My underwear has more holes than Swiss Cheese does.”

Clothing stores are not allowed to remain open during the lockdown and most people have done their clothes shopping in supermarkets or online. 

Brits have become accustomed to browsing online and having parcels of clothes delivered to their doors rather than going on shopping trips and trying clothes on in fitting rooms. 

The problem for Primark-lovers is that Primark does not have an online store – you can only buy Primark items from one of the 118 Primark stores in person. 

However, non-essential shops will be able to reopen again in a matter of weeks. 


When will Primark open?

Boris Johnson has just announced that shops can open from April 12, meaning Primark customers can finally visit the store in perso”n again.

‘Non-essential’ shops include everything from book shops, technology stores, games stores, department stores and clothing stores.

Hairdressers, beauty salons, gyms, libraries, zoos, museums pubs, restaurants and bars will be able to reopen from the same date.

March 8 marks the first of four steps in the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, with schools reopening on this date. 

Hairdressers, gyms and outdoor hospitality can also open from April 12 and the ‘rule of six’ will be abolished from May 17.

Indoor hospitality, cinemas, hotels, performances and sporting events will also restart in May, and all measures could potentially be over by June 21. 

The dates aren’t set in stone, Mr Johnson stated. The dates are dependent on four tests being met.

These are vaccination targets, vaccine reducing hospitalisation and deaths, pressure on the NHS and any new variants.
