Greggs’ new clothing line at Primark is a huge hit
Primark’s recent partnership with UK bakery chain Greggs has proved a huge hit with shoppers, with their brand new clothing line selling out in some stores within minutes.
The high-street favorite launched a limited-edition range of Greggs-branded t-shirts, tracksuits, sweatshirts, hoodies, trainers, hats and more on Saturday February 19, but over the weekend wasn’t even half finished when some stores reported they had completely sold out.
A shopper on Twitter said: “Primark sold Greggs stuff before I got any.”
Another said: ‘They said only 60 stores would have it. I went to the Reading store which opens at 9 and most are sold out by 9:30.
And another disgruntled customer added: “The nearest store that sells them is a train ride away. The bet is sold when I can make it!”
Now some of the savvy shoppers lucky enough to get their hands on the new lines are cashing in on ebay, with prices exploding on some items – Greggs hoodies are listed for £140 on ebay, more than seven times the price of the Primark shop from £18.
Tracksuits are listed at £130, bucket hats at £99.99, while Greggs trainers at £16 are being sold for £99 by some sellers on the popular shopping website.
eBay sellers selling their wares at inflated prices have come under fire, with one person on Twitter saying: “I don’t know what I’m more afraid of, the Russia/Ukraine situation or living in a world where the Greggs x Primark the merchandise sells and people list it on ebay with huge markups.”
