MetiNews.Com - The high street giant's latest tweet has rubbed some people up the wrong way
Breaking News ! High street giant Primark has been forced to shut all of its 190 stores in the UK yet again, meaning shoppers won't be able to get their hands on items until lockdown rules lift. Understandably, this has left many shoppers frustrated, as it's often a lifeline for those wanting to buy new clothes, shoes, homeware and accessories on a tight budget. But despite a projected £1bn lockdown loss, the brand is still refusing to offer online shopping. Posting on Twitter, one person wrote: " @Primark i saw there was an online shopping coming, what lies have i been fed." Primark quickly responded, explaining: "Hi Aimee, we can confirm that it is not in our plans to open an online store."

Shoppers are now livid with people for hitting out at Primark for refusing to open an online shop. One person said: "If people actually done their research they’d understand why Primark repeatedly say that going online isn’t profitable for THEM personally as a business. Just bc it works for others, doesn’t mean it will work for them and their particular style of business." Someone else explained: "Why is it hard for you guys to understand that Primark can’t afford to go online? Like are you guys doing this on purpose? Do you think you will still see £2 socks online??" "All retail is struggling. Primark has already explained why they're not going online but also do we really want another fast-fashion brand online given everything we know about that industry?" said a third.
