Primark is offering extended opening hours as it reopens its shops in Bucks from today.

The retailer is taking up the Government’s offer of staying open for longer in an effort to reduce queues and give customers more space and time to shop safely.

For the first week initially, stores will open for two extra hours per day on average, typically an hour earlier and later, with times varying by store.

Primark chief executive Paul Marchant said: “Safety remains at the front of our minds.

“We have extended opening hours across almost all of our stores to help meet demand safely but we’re also asking our customers to keep up the support and spirit they showed last year, particularly if queuing outside or in-store.”
