What to buy at Primark now that the high street stores have reopened

As of Monday 15 June, Primark stores reopened their doors to the public – albeit with new measures in place.

‘We have really missed our customers and we are delighted to be back and able to provide them with the quality, affordable products they love from Primark,’ says Primark CEO Paul Marchant.

‘While it might take a little longer to get into store, once inside, customers will find all their favourite Primark products and plenty of choice as usual. We have worked hard to make sure that clear signage and extra help will be there to guide them through the changes we have made to allow for social distancing.’

Demand has been high from day one, with lengthy queues filling streets in town centres across the country. But while the crowds have come under scrutiny, the instant surge in foot traffic is understandable.

Primark has always been a champion of affordable basics like underwear, pyjamas and footwear, but it’s also a priority destination for anyone looking for a trend-led, mood-lifting wardrobe update that won’t cost a fortune.
