Others have begged the store to restock, while others have taken advantage of the situation by selling them for more than ten times the price on eBay. One listing, in particular, shows that people are willing to pay above and beyond to unleash their inner Hawkins High nerd, with the seller flogging just one coveted tee for £150, according to the Mirror.

It's easy to see why the graphic top has proven so popular, looking more or less identical to the one sported by metalhead Eddie Munson and the rest of his Dungeons & Dragons team.

After checking online for a UK size medium, it appears the top is still available in a few Primark stores up and down the country, including at branches in Chester and those further afield.

However, there are far more shops where the item is currently out of stock, as further illustrated by various fruitless shopping outings recounted via social media. One person tweeted: "Trying to get the Stranger Things Hellfire Club T-Shirt in Primark is literally the PS5 scenario all over again. It’s sold out everywhere."

Another said: "Every Primark in my whole county is sold out of Hellfire Club t-shirts. Please tell me what I've done to deserve this."

Meanwhile, eBay sellers are profiting off such frustrations, with one size small top going for a whopping £150. According to the listing: "From a smoke-free, pet-free home. This has been packed and stored ready for delivery. Will be posted first class recorded delivery.

"Sold out in the store and no restock as advised. This is sold in the men's department so sizing is men's sizing."
