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.

“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”.
