Primark is closing for the next month due to the second coronavirus lockdown – but bosses have plans to get us through the doors when it’s over.
They are considering opening certain shops for 24 hours a day from December 2 to help shoppers stay socially distant, reports The Telegraph.
Brits have expressed worries online about how coronavirus protocols will be upheld as thousands flood to the high street for their Christmas shopping.
And, it seems extra hours is Primark’s plan.
Chief Executive George Weston said: "If we are able to trade in some stores up to 24 hours a day, then we can keep people more separate from each other more easily.
"We can keep the stores safer if everyone knows there are plenty trading hours and they do not have to rush on a Sunday into a six-hour period."

Primark claimed the March lockdown, which shut all its stores for 12 weeks, lost the company a mammoth £650million per month.
Despite this, customers remain loyal.
Many expressed their excitement at the prospects of a 24/7 Primark on Facebook.
One person wrote: "Midnight shopping trip!"
“I’m gonna miss sleeping,” joked another.
A third added: "This isn't good for sleep walkers though.
“Imagine sleep walking to Primark at 1am and emptying your bank account!"
Primark stores will close tomorrow, Thursday November 5, for the upcoming four week lockdown.
