Hundreds of people queued outside Primark and and other shops in Harrow Town Centre today as England entered the next stage of the roadmap out of coronavirus lockdown.
As of today (Monday, April 12) the latest rules allow for non m-essential shops to fully reopen their doors for customers again, two weeks after the previous lockdown easing on March 29.
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 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.
