The extended opening hours are aimed at helping to reduce queues while maximising takings, as York retailers are allowed to start trading again in the run-up to Christmas.

The Coppergate Centre store will open from 8am to 8pm every day except Sunday, when it will trade from 10.30am to 5pm.

Primark chief executive, Paul Marchant, said: “We are delighted to re-open our stores in England on 2 December, with longer shopping hours to give our customers more time to safely do their festive shopping.

“We have everything this season that our customers expect from Primark, including our famous Christmas jumpers, festive pyjamas and much, much more.”
