Following government guidance, there will be strict social distancing guidelines in place, which includes limits on the number of customers and mandatory face coverings.

Primark has no online shop and the company didn’t make any of their products available via any online retailers during the pandemic.

This means the only place you can officially get Primark products is in one of their shops.

Chief Executive, Paul Marchant 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."
