Primark Bags Now Turn Into Wrapping Paper For Lazy People

Primark is coming in for those who don't have time, money or enthusiasm to buy wrapping paper and we're all for it.

With stores still closed at the moment, the fashion retailer will be introducing the new bags again when they reopen and hopefully they will encourage people to reuse them because let's face it, a paper bag won't last too long.

The red and brown striped paper bags can be cut up to make a roll of gift wrapping. You just need to chop the handles off the top and the company logo from the bottom to leave the middle bit free to go wild.

Once ripped off, the excess that won't be used can go right into the paper bin.

The bags will be available throughout the festive period but you'll only be able to get them in-store because they don't sell anything online (sadly).

Depending on where you are, the bags might be available to get now but in the UK Primark stores won't be open until at least 2 December thanks to the second coronavirus lockdown across the country.

That hasn't stopped people from sharing their thoughts on the bags, with some championing the idea. One wrote: "If ever we needed an excuse to buy loads from Primark."

Another simply commented: "What a good idea," with a third writing: "That's the presents and wrapping paper sorted."

Others pointed out that they wouldn't be practical if the weather takes a turn when you're on your way home.

Someone pointed out: "Let's hope it's not raining when you leave the shop," while another added: "We got soaked one year running back to the car.. no bags left by time we got to the boot."

If you're getting geared up to pop down to Primark after 2 December it's worth noting that Primark bosses are considering opening some stores for 24 hours a day as they expect them to be jam-packed.

A new report from The Telegraph shows that the fashion retailer is hoping longer opening hours could help keep 'stores safer'.

Chief Executive George Weston said in a statement to the news outlet: "If we are able to trade in some stores up to 24 hours a day, then we can keep people more separate from each other more easily.

"We can keep the stores safer if everyone knows there are plenty trading hours and they do not have to rush on a Sunday into a six-hour period."
