Many big retail chains have come in the news today for different reasons. While the owner of Primark stores has decided to hand back furlough funds, the merger of Asda and Bellis has raised concerns regarding competitive practices. Moreover, the news of boss of Next receiving a 28 per cent pat hike last year is also doing the rounds.
Primark is now the latest addition to the big retail chain list who have decided to pay back the government furlough support. Weston said that the company had claimed £98 million during last year and another £79 million in this year to support the retailer’s workforce.
