The cult-fave store will reopen this Friday.
Retail giant Primark has announced that their store in Braehead shopping centre is set to stay open for a 36-hour period in the run up to Christmas to help shoppers. The high street retailer was forced to shut for three weeks whilst Glasgow, Renfrewshire and nine other local authorities were under Scotland’s highest restrictions, Level Four, meaning non-essential stops had to remain closed.
But now it is set to re-open all stores in Scotland on Friday, December 11 with extended opening hours, as all 11 local authorities move down to Level Three restrictions, in an effort to ease high customer demand during the busy festive period. However, non-essential travel is still banned between Level Three areas, meaning Glaswegians won’t be allowed to shop at intu Braehead shopping centre in Renfrewshire.
Primark Braehead will be the only store to trade overnight for a 36-hour period – and will open at 9am on December 11 and stay open right through until 9pm on 12 December. All other stores across Scotland will trade until at least 8pm on weekdays until December 23.
Safety continues to be the highest priority to Primark and all stores continue to have extensive safety measures in place in line with government guidance. This includes strict social distancing protocols, limits on the number of customers allowed in store, hand sanitisation stations on entry, Perspex screens or cubicles at tills, the use of face masks in-store and increased in-store cleaning.
Primark CEO, Paul Marchant, said: “We are delighted to re-open all of our stores in Scotland on 11 December, with longer shopping hours to give our customers more time to safely do their festive shopping.
“We have everything this season that our customers expect from Primark, including our famous Christmas jumpers, festive pyjamas and much, much more. All of our extensive safety measures remain in place to help ensure shopping at Primark is an enjoyable, safe experience for everyone.”
