Sports Direct NHS discount: As the chain announces a 50 percent discount for NHS workers, hundreds of eager shoppers have been spotted queueing up outside Sports Direct.
As of today, the sportswear chain is reopening 374 stores including those across Greater Manchester as the government is allowing non-essential shops to restart trading after nearly three months of lockdown.
In Stockport, the queue slithered from Warren Street entrance up the hill on Vernon Street and around the corner on Turner Street and Shawcross Fold, waiting in line at 10 am for about 300 people.
While in Bolton, where several major shops have once again opened their doors, MEN reporter Tom Molloy says Sports Direct is the town’s biggest shopping queue.
He tweeted along with a video: “By far the largest outdoor queue I have seen in Bolton town centre so far is Sports Direct which stretches all the way round the corner onto Deansgate past the Slaters Menswear entrance.”
In Sunderland city center lines are so long they had to be segregated from the store itself and diverted out of other shoppers’ way onto High Street West.
One tweeted: “A bit of queue management has taken place outside Sports Direct.
“People have been asked to wait in the middle of High St West, away from the doors of other shops so people can still get into other stores.”
“Monster queues” have also been documented outside of Sports Direct in Salisbury and Liverpool, while hundreds of shoppers were seen queuing down the middle of the road at Taunton.
As a way to say thank you for their front line work during the coronavirus crisis, the sports chain announced a half price offer to health care staff.
NHS employees can claim 50% off menswear, womenswear, and children’s clothing as long as they have a valid ID card.
