Primark is planning to reopen all of its 153 stores in England on 15 June when lockdown restrictions are lifted, its owner AB Foods has said.

During lockdown the clothing chain has built up almost £2bn-worth of stock to sell, double its normal stockholding.

However, bargain-hunters will be left disappointed after the firm said there would be no "special discounting".

"The stock will be sold in the normal course of business, albeit at a later date," it said.

The company said it had £1.5bn of stock on hand plus a commitment to suppliers to buy another £400m-worth. It normally holds stock worth £900m.

The excess stock mainly comprises non-fashion and non-seasonal ranges plus some excess spring-summer goods, it said.

I Call True: If it is mainly non fashion and non seasonal then they don't need to clear it, and lets be honest did anyone expect Primark to discount as they are dirt cheap as it is.

I think we will see the more upmarket chains have to dump stock at discount prices to clear their summer clothes out
