Primark buyers were happy to line up after waiting months for a bargain.
Many returned to shopping malls in Middlesbrough on Saturday after the coronavirus restrictions eased earlier in the week.

Among them were Middlesbrough’s mother, Jo Lee, 42, and her 13-year-old son, Isaac.

“He’s had a growing push, so we’re going into a few basic games, but we’re going to go online for other things that he needs in places like JD Sports,” Jo said.

“You can’t with Primark, that’s why we’re in line. I don’t care, the weather is nice and it seems to go pretty fast.

“I think we really need another – I was hoping they would put one in the old Toys R Us store in Teesside Park. “

Only essential stores like supermarkets and pharmacies have been allowed to open during the lockdown that began in January.

Earlier this week, Boris Johnson urged the country to “behave responsibly” when non-essential stores and pubs reopened.

“I’m sure this will be a huge relief for the business owners that have been closed for so long, and for everyone else it’s a chance to get back to doing some of the things we love and missed. “, did he declare.

“I urge everyone to continue to behave responsibly and remember ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ to suppress covid as we continue our immunization program. “
