Dozens of Primark shoppers reacted to the sale of new official Greggs clothing at its department stores.
An 11-piece collection — including sausage pants, tees, bucket hats, hoodies, joggers and even a pair of Greggs-branded sneakers — has been unveiled.
The collaboration comes as Primark opens a new Greggs cafe in the Birmingham store – the largest Primark in the world. It even has its own donut swing.

Mixed customer reviews ranged from positive comments on its novelty factor to others thinking it was an April Fool’s Day joke or comparing it to the Greggs staff uniform.
Underneath a promotional advertisement for the Greggs clothing line on Facebook, one user wrote: “It makes me laugh every time I see it, if it makes money then fair play to them.”
Different users posted, “I’m coming for the sausage roll tracksuit” and “I think I might come for a hoodie”.
Another wrote: “New holiday gear. Rep Greggs on the trails.”
And another user posted, “Whoever came up with the concept of charging people to advertise your company’s products was a genius!”
A social media user said he was heading to Primark and celebrating with a Greggs.
And true to his word, he later posted on Twitter: “Not saying I like @GreggsOfficial but I went to Primark to buy some clothes and now I’ve been sitting in a Greggs looking at my transport feeling satiated.”
Another Twitter user posted that he had “been shopping for Greggs merchandise” and posted a snap of a gray top and socks.
But one user posted: “Why would anyone want to dress like they work at Greggs? Am I missing something? Wouldn’t it make more sense to create a top with pictures of food on it like sausage rolls and pastries?”
Another added: “I’ll repost this on April 1st. Hilarious.”
A t-shirt with an image of a sausage roll is priced at £8, while you can pick up a black Greggs hoodie for £16 and the matching tracksuit bottom for £14.
A pair of Greggs trainers will cost you £16, a pair of slides just £8, while it’s £7 for a pack of five socks, the bucket hat is £8 and a pack of two Greggs pants, one of which is with a small sausage. rolls everywhere, is £7.
In a video ad on Greggs’ Facebook page, one user wrote, “I’m not going to lie, some of these look good.” While another added: “I have to go to Primark!”
