EYELASHES and pyjamas were top of the shopping lists among the masses that queued outside Penneys in Cork City today.
A lengthy line of people waited patiently on a dry but dreary summer’s morning to stock up on “the essentials” following a three-month closure caused by Covid-19.
Such was the extent of the queue that the premises opened its doors at 9am, an hour and a half ahead of the advertised time of 10.30am.
Primark CEO Paul Marchant, said: “We have really missed our customers in Ireland, and we are delighted to be back open, providing customers with the quality, affordable products they love from Penneys.
“While it might take a little longer to get into store, once inside, customers will find all their favourite Penneys products and plenty of choice as usual."
"We have worked hard to make sure that clear signage and extra help will be there to guide them through the changes we have made to allow for social distancing."
