The 5 Primark must-haves when shops open for 24hrs on December 2, from matching Christmas PJs to bargain parkas

FASHION fans are eagerly awaiting Primark’s re-opening after the store closed due to lockdown restrictions – with shops throwing open their doors for 24 hours. 

As the second lockdown lifts on December 2, 11 flagships stores will be opening at 7am on Wednesday until closing time on December 3.

As fashionistas prepare for a shopping bonanza, we’ve rounded up five key items to grab from your nearest outlet. 

Festive pyjamas

First on our list is festive pyjamas, and with Christmas just weeks away there’s nothing better than some matching designs for the whole family. 

Plus with Brits probably spending much more time indoors in the near future, it's the perfect opportunity to invest in some new PJs.

Primark is selling various designs including a red pair featuring the slogan #teamsanta, all the way Mandalorian-inspired jammies. 

And there’s even a size for the family dog, with matching pyjamas starting from £5. 


With the UK in the midst of winter, ‘tis the season to invest in a warm coat. 

Primark has got you covered with a range of parkas made from recycled materials.

There are styles for the whole family, with an adult version – which they described as ‘like a hug’ – setting you bacK £35, while there are colourful designs for the kids as well. 

Sharing snaps of the eco-friendly outerwear to their Instagram page, Primark said: “Chilly family walks, park trips & the school playground – these coats are ready to go."

Christmas jumpers

And it wouldn’t be Christmas without a novelty festive jumper either, and the high-street store has got everything from adorable animals to iconic characters in stock. 

Choose from a warm red jumper which says ‘merry and bright’ or a cream version with a reindeer on, with price starting from £10. 

Or if you fancy something a bit cheekier, why not splash out on a Homer Simpson-style jumper, featuring the yellow character saying: “Mister Plow that’s my name! That name again is Mister Plow!”

Sharing the £16 jumper online, Primark said: “Embracing the novelty knits this season.” 


The hallmark of a weekend in front of the TV is arguably the onesie, and the store has designs kids – and adults – will love this winter. 

Babies can look even more adorable in an £8 reindeer outfit, which they said was ideal for a little one’s first Christmas.

While your older babies will love a Minecraft themed version, for £13, perfect to play games in. 

£1 thong

And it wouldn’t be a trip to Primark if we didn’t stock up on arguably their most essential item – the £1 thong.

You can never have enough of the bargain underwear, and even celebrities including Mrs Hinch have confirmed they’re a fan. 

The store is also selling adorable sets from £5, if you felt like treating yourself to some new lingerie.

If you're not able to get down to one of the stores open for 24 hours, you can take advantage of their extended opening hours.

Primark plans to extend opening hours in all of its 153 stores in England in the run-up to Christmas.
