Although Primark is good and carries a lot of stuff and at good prices, sometimes the quality of the items is a bit iffy, for instance, I bought 2 pairs of shoes (womens) at £15 each, and they only lasted one season, I was not wearing them every day either, the heels wore down quickly and they got very scruffy looking very quickly. One pair, the dye even ran onto my feet when it rained. Also some of the clothes sizes and styles are odd and it is best to try on stuff first to make sure it 'hangs' right, otherwise it is not a case of 'one size fits all' as some stuff just doesn't look right even though it looks good on the hanger!
The range of clothes is fantastic and the prices unbelievable. Current trends catered for and special offers in abundance. I have shopped in many different stores, from Aberdeen, down to Essex and each store is a delight, long may it continue.
although i dont like there clothes my wife and eldest daughter realy love this place. supose the way women go through clothes it makes for a bargain but i find there clothes cheap and they dont size or hang well. i might just be a funny shape but the rating is from my wife and daughter not me.
excellent value for money, even if a t-shirt lasts you a year, it only costs £2 so is value. would be good if everything could be made in the UK though. the only problem I have is the store is too warm and stuffy. I really feel sorry for the workers.
No, it's not always pleasant to shop there, but great choice of products, great value for fashion fixes and essentials. Yes, sometimes, things do shrink in the wash, and some things are not as good as you would hope, but you get what you pay for. I was very impressed during both my pregnancy, it was the only store where someone from the staff would make me jump the queues when I was heavily pregnant. I would not have expected it from this store, but none of the other stores did.
I worked for them in 2007 for 4 months and they tell you how they don't buy from child sweat shops in foreign countries but staff that were opening boxes of clothes said they had bites from insects on their hands.
The shop was terribly unorganized and most of the staff didn't have a clue what they were there to do. On top of that a supervisor lost her temper with me because I asked her what should I do, after being sent from another floor that had no jobs for me to take care of, bitch.
After working there I really had no interest in shopping there but my Mother always informs me of how when she gets something from Primark it always seems to fall apart after the first wash.
The price is crazy cheap, I love the style of most of the stuff in there but sizes seem way off, I thought it was just me being awkward but I have spoken to a few people of different sizes and they agree.
Fun to look around but beware. The goods do not last long at all, fit badly and the queues are horrible. The stupid paper bags fall to bits on the way home and the jewellery is often broken before you even wear it. For the price George is way better value. I think primark is mainly a young persons store. Even then my 15 year old is often disapointed with the stuff she buys. Its a junk shop really.
Have had the misfortune to visit Primark on two occasions. Made the mistake of buying a t'shirt- Should have known better as it was only a couple of £'s, washed on cold wash and shrunk on first wash. Will now stick with fair trade t's from sainsburys for £6.00 which was perfectly.
