Hundreds of people queue outside Primark as Harrow Town Centre reopens

Hundreds of people gathered outside Primark in Harrow Town Centre to grab items that they have otherwise been unable to get since just after Christmas.
 

The long queues outside the popular chain of clothing stores are reminiscent of the huge lines seen back in June last year when shops reopened following the first initial lockdown that started in April 2020.

The queues for TK Max in St George’s went all the way to the bottom floor.

The latest reopening of non-essential businesses comes after pupils returned to schools back at the start of March followed by outdoor socialising was allowed again a few weeks ago.

People are also looking forward to having a drink or meal with friends and family as pubs and bars are allowed to have customers in outside seating. This rule will also be relaxed on May 17.

People in Harrow Town Centre today.

Members of Harrow Online Group have been discussing the reopening of Harrow Town Centre today. 

One member said: “Ridiculous. I saw a lady post that she stood outside one Primark store at 4.30am with her 5 year old son. Shocking!”
 
Another group member said: “I was going to make the mistake of coming into Harrow primark but I’ll wait a few days now.”
 

In response to some of the negative comments, one person said: “I was there but it wasn’t that bad but the primark queues were mad ended up going JD, m&s and leaving. 

“There are lots of police and covid marshalls and people are wearing masks. Let them go to primark if it makes them feel better”

A Harrow Online member said: “Wonder how many of them have had a Jab or even bother having a lateral test done weekly!”
 
Someone also commented: “Why are people still moaning about this, the rules changed to allow it. We can’t be stuck inside forever. Some people seem to want that”.
