Large queues build at Nottingham Primark as shops reopen

Shoppers have been eagerly queuing outside Primark this morning (April 12) ahead of its big reopening.


As part of the government's roadmap out of lockdown, the rules have eased further with more of society opening back up.


The lockdown was first eased on March 8, when schools reopened, followed by March 29 when the 'stay at home' order ended.


From today, 'non-essential' retail can now open again, hospitality venues can serve customers outdoors and personal care businesses and gyms can reopen.


And large queues had built at 6.30am outside of Primark in Long Row in Nottingham city centre.


Millie Hallam, 30, a nurse from Sherwood, had been queuing outside Primark since 6.30am on Monday ahead of its 7am reopening time.


She said: "I've just come about 10 minutes ago.


"My family needs socks, they all need socks - we need socks and pyjamas.


"(We want) a bargain but Primark is where we always get our socks and pyjamas.


"I knew it opened at 7am, I thought I would be one of the first just because it's cold.


"Everybody's mental health has been suffering. Everybody has needed something small, something normal like Primark to open and other things to open - just to get back to a way of normality.


"A way of life how it should be. People have lost people, people have been ill. I have seen it first hand, it's not nice."


Mum Kelly Jones, 44, of Hucknall, was in the Primark queue with her family. She said: “At 6 I got on the tram, I am going just here - just Primark and then home.


“One of them needs clothes - socks, pants and whatever else we can grab while we are here.


“Normally I come at least probably once or twice a month. We came last time when it reopened. We came here at 20 to 8. The queue was right up to Five Guys when they reopened just before Christmas. By the time we got to the front at about 10 past 8 it was queuing on Market Square. This time it’s not as bad as I thought.


“It’s the first step to normality, isn’t it.”
