A Primark spokesperson said: “Nothing matters more to us than the health and wellbeing of our employees and customers.
“That is why we will only reopen our stores in the UK once we are convinced that is it safe and right to do so.
“We are closely following all safety advice from Government and will treat this as the minimum standard across all our stores.
“We will put in place rigorous health and safety measures including a strict social distancing protocol, providing personal protection for employees and customers and increased in-store cleaning.
“Of course, this is uncharted territory for us and our high street neighbours, which is why we will constantly monitor our reopening and our health and safety policies to ensure we are doing the best we can to help protect our people and customers, as we all continue to adapt to the new normal.”
