cheap n not always cheerful

Was recently pleased to see some pretty summer dresses in store, not so pleased with quality, seams split at zip and stitching on sleeves, sizing also hit n miss. I know its suppose to be cheap n cheerful but on this ocassion was cheap n nasty and not prepared to purchase such bad quality.. when I have found a suitable dress its always to short im 5ft 8in and primark dresses are too short to the point that is unsuitable to wear. Have gone right off this shop, used to think i was getting a bargain, but now think just fit for bin im afraid.

Odd sizes and untidy stores

I have bought cloths from here is only one size. The size i KNOW I am, however Primark clothing seems to disagree. I have tops which are massive and leggings which I was barely able to move my legs in, despite them saying they are a size larger than I am.

Don't know whom they are measuring their sizes against but they certainly aren't British sizes.

Shop is usually very unorganised, with clothing strewn everywhere and some even trampled on.

Queing is usually long and tiresome and I only go here on occasion.

Woohoo Gift cards purchased online and posted to me

I can't tell you how excited I was when I went onto the Primark site and saw you can purchase gift cards online. It means I have been able to do my Christmas shopping without leaving my cosy warm bed. Thank you Primark for another brilliant idea, my kids are going to be super excited about the gift cards and I wasn't crushed by Christmas shoppers! Needless to say whenever I do go into Primark i have always found the staff at my favourite store in Stockport friendly and helpful with lovely smiles and some happy conversations.

They get by!

I love a lot of the clothing you find in Primark. Cheap and cheerful, that's all it's about... and in that department, they definitely pass 100%. Sure, a lot of the clothing does seem to fall apart pretty sharpish, but that's not always the case.

Customer service is something they might want to work on. I've met many bright happy people in Primark, but I've also met some seriously rude and angry people who need to learn that when you come to work, you put your game face on and just deal with it.

the security inside the store is literally a joke!!!

Attention tourists: DON'T GO TO THIS STORE IN LONDON!! I've been STOLEN (my wallet with all my money, credict cards..everything!) INSIDE OF THE PRIMARK on Oxford street in London last saturday!! And the store just said they couldn't do anything about it! NOTHING!!

The truth is that a lot of tourist like to go to that store, because it's cheap, and we've became "an easy prey" for the thieves! Of course, especially because the security inside the store is literally a joke!!!

So don't go there!! And if you do take care because there are thieves going there only because they know we are tourists with money, credict cards and passaports!!

Good prices, usually good quality

I always pop into Primark when I am out shopping and I will usually love everything I see or not see anything that I like at all. It's very 50/50 when I walk into Primark even though I do usually find it very nice and the products of good quality. Though you can probably find better quality elsewhere, at the prices in Primark it is a given.
Though I noticed that the Primark prices are getting higher, especially on the Atmosphere range, which unfortunately, is most of the women's section.
Tops in that section have gone from being £5 to £8, and from £8 to £12. I know that they aren't massive increases, but when you are buying a lot of items, those price increases can end up adding an extra £20 onto your shopping trip.
I do think that the quality of the products in Primark are reliably good, and if you happen to get an anomaly, in which your product shrinks, stretches, rips ect. You haven't wasted that much money- but with increasing prices, I would be more angry if I found that my product isn't to standard.
To summarise, I will definitely go into Primark again, and show people the products I have got from there- but if the prices continue to rise, there may be a chance I could get a better deal elsewhere.

Primark - Westwood Cross (Kent)

We don't usually shop in primark, and tend to favour slightly more expensive high street brands. But was advised by a couple of friends to go and have a look in this one. We went to this primark one evening (5th June) about an hour before it shut and ended up spending about £110. Although they were close to doors closing, the staff member on the changing rooms upstairs couldn't do enough to help both of us. The clothes I bought were better quality than I expected and at really low prices. We went for a meal afterwards and spent about 15 minutes talking about the exceptional customer service we received from the two girls on the tills downstairs (we paid separately but put stuff in the same bag). They made an effort to make conversation with us, not just about the products but about things generally. They were happy, smiling, and we came away completely satisfied. My partner, who is the store manager of a vey well known brand said he would happily employ either of them if they behaved like that in an interview. I wish we had found out their names, but didn't really think that far ahead at the time. Well done Primark!

Cheap and Cheerful

Love this place! I can buy a whole outfit here for the same I would pay for a dress in another shop. And they seem to be getting trendier too! Plus they go upto a size 20. All in all, I <3 Primarni!

The price just rocks

I often look into my closet and see clothes that I don't wear anymore, but are just too good to throw away. Probably they are not my style anymore or I just need something fresh - that's why I love Primark. Clothes are cheap and you don't really expect them to live for more than two seasons - which is absolutely enough for me. This way I can change my wardrobe every now and then and don't spend a fortune. Hate the mess in the stores though - it's impossible to go there on weekends or when girls finish school - you won't get out there alive. Besides that, I like to go there during weekdays in the morning - absolutely great shopping experience and I always find something and I am always amazed about the price.

Top notch for kids clothes

I was never that drawn to shop at Primark as I hated the fact that all the clothes seemed to be crammed in and it was a bit of a free for all in store.

I decided to visit the local store mainly to look at kids clothes and was impressed with the quality and value of the clothing range for kids and adults alike.

The service seemed to be much better than previous experiences and the staff were pleasant and courteous even though it was extremely busy.

Still a bit of a mine field and some items are cheap and not great quality but for kids that have grown out of clothes before they have had time to wear them out this was a great find.

Primark helped me stay stylish on a budget

I unfortunately went bankrupt this year and so have been (as I thought) 'forced\ to shop at discount fashion stores like Primark. Oh how wrong I was to think that discounted prices means discounted quality; it doesn't. In the last two years all my wardrobe now comes from Primark, and not only are my clothes still stylish and distinctive, but people have even commented on my clothes and are amazed when I tell them they were from Primark.
Trainers for £6 while Christian Loubatin ones cost £900. It makes no sense! Or rather it makes ALOT of sense to continue shopping at Primark!

Nt worth the cost

The clothes is incredibly cheap...but you get what you pay for. It falls apart, so easily, the clothing is abused by the staff, other shopper and then eventually you. Less about quantity and more about quality. It has no competitors because no one is willing to flog crap. R u willing to buy crap... is that your worth.... I implore you to rise above it, life is short, rise out of the gutter and into fitting boutiques to clothe yourself.

returns

only downside of primark if you want to take anything back you go to customer services with two people on, queue for ages as everyone takes one item back and pays for two basket fulls while they are there, i recommend that the refunds counter is for refunds only...as i wasted all my lunch hour queing to just get a refund very frustrated, or even more people on to deal with JUST REFUNDS.........

This store is a slap on British people faces

I never buy anything from Primark except my undergarments and guess what, they don't even last for a week or so, Either they get torned or just smell bad...
this store is earning huge in terms of turnover and retail franchise, I think they need to spend more on quality of products. The number of people who are using primark stuff is huge and has a huge market but they products are useless, there is no bigger slap then this one coz what they think is British Public is idiot and stupid and they can get away with it........Hope this review makes a change

staff need training

"6 quid......" with a held out hand is not the way to tell a customer what they owe you.
Wakefield Primark need to train certain members of staff in customer services. They ought to go upstairs to TKMaxx and get a few pointers off their staff. Chalk and cheese......
