PRIMARK has issued an urgent warning to shoppers to act now or face missing out on gifts this Christmas.
The budget retailer has released the last date that customers will be able to use its click and collect service to shop for gifts in time for Christmas.
Primark launched its highly-anticipated click and collect service at 25 stores last month
Customers have until Thursday, December 22, to place their orders to ensure that they arrive for collection in time for Christmas.
If you place an order within this time frame, you’ll be able to collect your items in-store on Christmas eve.
Those looking for last-minute gift ideas can browse from an extensive range of Primark kids’ products, including Christmas jumpers, partywear, toys and nursery accessories.
For the time being only kids toys, clothing and nursery ranges are available through the click and collect service.
That means you won’t be able to order other ranges, like womenswear and homeware, and pick it up.
But the retail giant says that around 2,000 items from its kids range are available to order.
After browsing online and adding items to a virtual basket, shoppers will be able to choose a day to collect their parcel.
Orders will be available for collection between two and seven days after the order has been placed.
Shoppers have to spend a minimum of £15 to use the click and collect service, but there is no extra charge.
Each participating store has a designated click and collect service desk.
And once the items are delivered in-store, customers can shop for additional items and pay for these at the click and collect desk while collecting their order – meaning they can skip the main queue.
Primark’s click-and-collect service launched at 25 stores in the UK back on November 14.
HOAR was given an exclusive first look at the new click and collect desk at Primark in Sheffield.
Hundreds of new items and exclusive ranges are available exclusively to click and collect customers.
All orders are delivered to stores in brown paper packaging, or cardboard boxes sealed with paper tape featuring the new click and collect branding.
The retailer said all of its packaging can be easily recycled at home.

HOAR tried the new self-checkouts at the brand’s store in Sheffield city centre – you can see our verdict here.
We also got a peek inside Primark’s new vintage section, where shoppers can get designer clothes for as little as £20.
