A representative says the retailer
Plans for click-and-collect options ‘from time to time’ are underway.
If you have always been dreaming of purchasing the most recent and trendy top-notch items at Primark online, it might have caused you so much joy to see positive reports of this desire turning into a possibility soonest.
Nevertheless, sorry for disappointing you, it’s unfortunate that the dream is not anywhere close to getting real.
The Irish retailer has refuted some spreading reports and laid everything on the table by saying such plans or anything close to that is not currently underway.
Last Tuesday, a number of publications released reports that a click-and-collect invention is underway for the retailer as a result of a recent statement published from a financial management company Davy.
As per The Sun, Davy gave a report that Paul Marchant told a Primark’s chief executive Paul Marchant told a crowd of commentators earlier in this month they look forward into inaugurating the service.
Davy reportedly said that a click-and-collect is “on the horizon”, adding that “even when rolled out, a click-and-collect initiative will only cause an increasing benefit for Primark”.
Nevertheless, a Primark representative tells The Independent that even if the web is an instrumental platform for the retailer, online shopping is currently not planned for.
We have a powerful digital and a fast developing presence on social media, currently with fourteen million followers. Our clients love looking online for the newest offers and visiting into our stores to purchase,” the representative says.
“From time to time, we will check at click-and-collect as one possible option to provide to our client’s service. However, there exist no such imminent plans to trial click and collect.”
Primark still is the image of fast fashion as development goes on.
The report will come as a heartbreaker to Primark fans who have time and again expressed their desire for an internet-based shopping choice from the retailer over the years.
One shopper comment read, want the kind of a world we live in if Primark is incapable of offering online shopping services. Another one on twitter was seen commenting that water can be sourced online from any planets yet at Primark, no online services are offered. He continued to refer to that as a scandal.
Feedback written by one of Primark representative under the client’s tweets stated that Primark does not offer internet shopping but is committed to offering amazing prices at their stores. This is a clear indication that they do not intend to establish the initiative but rather continue selling at their stores.
At the beginning of this month, the retailer opened a new flagship shop of their own in Birmingham, which has now become home for a restaurant, Disney-inspired cafe, and a beauty studio.
The shop, which is Primark biggest store so far and it’s one hundred and eighty-seventh in the UK holds five floors in one hundred and sixty thousand square ft.
