Reopening date for Primark confirmed
The opening date for Primark stores has been announced.
Associated British Foods (ABF), which owns Primark, announced this morning that all of its Primark shops in England will be reopening on June 15.
This includes sites in Norwich’s Haymarket and in King’s Lynn.
The news comes after government gave non-essential retailers the go-ahead to welcome customers again.
In a statement, the company said: “As European governments have begun to ease restrictions on clothing retailing we have been able to reopen stores.

“Social distancing protocols, hand sanitiser stations, perspex screens at tills and additional cleaning of high frequency touch points in the store are among the measures we are implementing.”
The firm added that “as long as social distancing is required, we expect it to restrict the capacity of our busiest stores from achieving their aggregate pre-Covid-19 sales”.
