 Non Essential Shops Open Tomm
Topic Originator: EEP  
Date:   Sun 25 Apr 20:57

Let’s see the usual posts on Facebook about folk queing to get inside Primark etc....
The problem I have is that most of the people going will be the age group that have not had any vaccine and we all know the rules will be broken so I would expect a surge in covid cases in 2 weeks?
A friend of mine that has had the 1st vaccine tested positive today so now has to stay in his house etc.

I`d imagine most of the people who haven`t been vaccinated will be the ones working in these establishments or working elsewhere on a Monday. Most of the people using these establishments will be the vaccinated.

That's a bit of a bold statement ... I'd like to see your data on that.
Or did you just make it up? 🤣

Well I would say the 19-49 year olds will be the percentage of people shopping and going for something to eat tomm and they have not had any vaccine?

FFS they're only going to the shops. As long as they follow the guidelines who cares?

It’s quite a conclusion to jump to.

I walked past my local pub about an hour ago and it was clearly over capacity and filled exclusively with grey haired white males - and not a even an attempt to social distance.

On the balance of probability, it will be the people in the queues at Primark that have suffered the most through the past year. From losing their jobs, not being able to attend school, university or college, unable to socialise and mix with friends, managing full time work with home schooling all for a virus that in all likelihood, will do them very little to no harm.

On the contrary, the older generation will have had little impact on their financial situation, will have had their vaccines and, at least in my experience, are the group who treat the guidance with more disdain than any others so will be most likely to dis-regard the rules on the basis they’ve had their vaccine.

..other than that, yes, when the numbers start to increase again, it will be the folk in Primark’s fault.

Every morning I'll be signing like a caged bird you might say,
John, Paul, George and Ringo help pass the hours away,
free as a bird will I be....as another dawn creeps up on me.

Load of p@sh. What you got to back that up with? Guarantee a large proportion of people in pubs/shops today will be retired and not working.

Awight Pat!

The queue at Primark probably last 2 minutes and only looked long due to 2m spaces between people. No doubt it was daft lasses wanting to do selfies for social media to show how crazy they are by getting up early to get a Primark fix. Each to their own...

Town centres will be suffering still as the offices are still largely empty. No people nipping out at lunch or before/after work.

spot on jake89, think the queue after the other shops next to primark opened started at the top of the new row so wasnt blocking other shops and with the spaces between them was probably only half of what you would prob see in the shop at a busy time.

Five cheap undersized Chinese T-Shirts for £10 is pretty hard to resist for some mind :-))

At least you don't pre judge people


Sure enough, they had all suffered through being unable to procure £2 t-shirts from elsewhere.

Lockdown has been a pretty miserable time so if folk want to queue for Primark then it’s clearly something they enjoy so if that gives them happiness then good for them.

I can only see myself queuing up if it’s Covid protocol and after acquiring a wee part time job (on the back of three years on UC) I’m looking forward to buying some essential clothes for the office. I’ve gone to Primark in the past and found it to be a great place for those of us on small / limited budgets. We can’t all afford Next, M&S or any other high end clothes shops.

I’m going to miss Debenhams a lot ~ it was also a good place for limited budgets.

What experience is that ?

As I`ve seen things, the older generation have been diligent in following the guidance.

Opinions differ, as is the norm.

I take it I've hurt your feelings? Sorry if that's the case.

As long as the people in the queue are following protocol, are wearing masks and are 2m apart there should be no problems. The biggest worry is the the crowds who drink in the street and hug each other without wearing masks. Personally my wife and I are going to Stirling on Thursday, we will probably only go into our favourite jewelers and then to our favourite restaurant for a lunch. The only time that my mask will be off is when I'm eating.
