FURIOUS shoppers in Wales have lashed out after Primark only stocked England kit in its Welsh stores.

Red Dragon fans are breathing fire after England tops, t-shirts and beanies were given pride of place in one of the company’s Welsh stores, with nothing on show for Gareth Bale’s Wales team.

Primark stores from Cardiff and Swansea to Wrexham and Llandudno were left with no Wales World Cup gear – as the company blamed supply issues for the situation.

A photo taken in the Wrexham store shows England jumpers, t-shirt and beanies available to purchase on the rails but not a stitch for Welsh fans.

Frustrated Red Dragon fans called on Primark to “sort it out” with the first Wales and England matches in Qatar later this month.

A Wales supporter asked: “Why are you selling these in Welsh stores?” and questioned if they knew Wales was in the World Cup too.

One social media suggested the Llandudno store should be “annexed” for not having any Wales branded clothing available, while another asked “where’s the Wales stock?”

Another said there was “nothing Welsh at all” in their Swansea and Cardiff stores. Shoppers found red bobble hats with Wales written on them – but nothing for the World Cup.

Primark blamed a supply issue preventing their Welsh stock from reaching shelves.

A spokesperson for the clothing shop said “due to the timings of the playoffs, we’ve experienced some delays in the delivery of our Welsh stock, however these are due into stores soon.”

And they promised that Wales fans will be able to purchase Welsh World Cup Christmas jumpers, t-shirts and hats when they’re finally in stock.

A spokesperson for Primark said: “We’re delighted to offer our customers the chance to pick up official World Cup merchandise, including t-shirts, jumpers and hats, at affordable prices in our stores across all markets – this includes Welsh merchandise, endorsed by The Football Association of Wales.

“Unfortunately due to the timings of the playoffs, we’ve experienced some delays in the delivery of our Welsh stock, however these are due into stores soon – fans can expect a Welsh World Cup Christmas jumper among other items, including tees, long sleeve t-shirts and beanie hats.”
