People Are Queuing Around The Block To Get Into Primark As It Reopens All Stores Today
Guys, the time has come - Primark has opened its doors to the public today, after months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
And it seems shoppers are chomping at the bit to get inside, with mega long queues forming outside the stores from as early as 5am this morning.
Primark opens all of its 153 stores in England today (15th June), following the recent green light from the government.
Of course, there will be some increased health and safety measures in place, including strict social distancing, PPE for employees and customers and more frequent in-store cleaning.
All the usual Primark products will be available in store at the normal prices, but there will be no sales when the stores reopen.
And shoppers have *definitely* been missing their Primark fix, with queues already forming outside the huge Birmingham flagship branch.
In Lincoln, the first shopper is said to have even arrived at 5am. While in Wolverhampton, shoppers were queueing by 8am and in Liverpool, one store has already started letting the public in.
On Twitter, people have been tweeting some of the busy scenes, with one writing: "Down at Primark this morning as it opens for the first time since lockdown and the queue is ENORMOUS."

Primark CEO, Paul Marchant said: "We have really missed our customers and we are delighted to be back on 15 June and able to provide them with the quality, affordable products they love from Primark.
"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.
"We are also asking customers to respect the measures we have put in place to help ensure shopping at Primark is an enjoyable, safe experience for everyone."
