The popular retailer has introduced a number of safety measures for staff and customers inside stores for social distancing.

Speaking about the re-opening of stores, Primark CEO, Paul Marchant, said:

“We have really missed our customers in Wales, and we are delighted to be back open, providing customers 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.”

Those expecting a summer discount will be left disappointed, as products will be sold at their normal prices which means there will be no sales or special offers when they re-open their doors.
