Great price for upto date throwaway fasion, their items were not made to last more than 1 season and their basics such as t-shirts and underwear is great value. stores can look a bit like a jumblesale on a busy Saturday. It would be great if they developed an online store too.
Primark always has the REAL bargins!! If you can't find something for yourself, you are sure to find something as a gift for someone else! Don't be duped by the expensive high street stores, Primark has quality stock and great styles so you won't be disappointed. The stores are huge and have everything from fashion (men/women/children), accessories, to things for the home.
With myself (I like to think of as a modern thirty something) and 2 teenage daughters of 16 and 12, (both with different ideas of fashion ~ one a typical girly of skirts, pretty tops and dolly shoes and the other a check shirt, khakis and pumps/boots type of girl ~ PRIMARK is the place to go! With fashion changing every few minute and trying to keep up with the costs of 2 growing girls and a new monthly wardrobe for each, Primark really is the only constant option for me! The only downfall the shop has, is the clothes can warp and the quality of materials isn't that of say Next, however as the prices are unbeatable almost £10-£20 cheaper than the likes of Next, Debenhams and New Look, who can complain! With a forever changing fashion society, Primark's fashion is as hot as the catwalks and really are leagues above their expensive high street chain or boutique counterparts. Primark has the ULTIMATE FIVE STARS and then some from me!
Primark may be temptingly cheap but everything I have ever purchased from there has brought home the old adage, "Buy Cheap, Buy Twice". I no longer shop there and prefer to save up for better quality versions. The only way I could justify ever shopping there again would be when buying for babies / small children as the life span of their clothing is much shorter, making spending lots of money to buy them a waste. Having said that the fact that their supply chain allegedly has some very questionable links (i.e. workers in developing countries not being paid a living wage by Primark sub-contractors in order to keep wholesale prices as low as possible) makes me feel uncomfortable about buying from there at all.
primark are popular because of their low prices and good clothes, I beg to differ on the 'good clothes' aspect.
Labour is driven by slave trade abroad and the clothes don't last as long as clothes should. Customers are only happy because they can go back and buy another hand-made-by-child garment then the current one inevitably breaks.
I like your stuff for the summer wear. But I speak for every guy when I say your in-store experience is monsterous. Any mention from the missus of a visit to Primark, my answer is "I'll be in the pub, ring me when you're done". You need to up your ecommerce game and install a shopping cart onto your site. Not only will it increase your revenue but make many average bodied UK blokes like myself very happy by having not to wait in a Primark queue listening to kids crying and middle aged mums talking about "oh no she didn't" on last night's Eastenders. (not a stereotype).
Another great shopping experience though at times looks like a jumble sale as people are so awful the way they pull things out look at them then throw them not only back on the displat unit, but floor as well cloathe litter bugs i call them.
The cloathes are good value for money and there is no need to go around looking like a rag bag when you can get items as cheap as they make.
A branch of Primark recently opened near to where I live, I bought a 5 pack of underpants "Jersey Slip" but was unable to actually see them properly because of the packaging they were MUCH skimpier than the picture on packaging showed and subsequently a VERY POOR and uncomfortable fit. Another single pair (most expensive I've EVER purchased) bought at the same time were OK when bought, but a few washes later (hand washed - never in very hot water) had lost all elasticity. I had lost my receipt and one of 5 pack had been worn so I was unable to do much about it - although a trip to trading standards has been contemplated. I would suggest anyone purchasing anything from Primark keeps their receipt very safe, although I personally won't be shopping there again.
I gave this a one star rating because the staff were pleasant and there was no way not to give any stars at all.
i used to love primark for work clothes & pj's.
whilst being poor quality and coming away after a few washes - they were cheap enough to throw them away.
like most other "cheap" companies, they have used price to build a good reputation, opened loads of stores, then started to hike the prices of their products.
i can now get better quality clothing and pj's for the same price, at a supermarket.
This is almost pointless. It's good because you can apply for jobs without having to go into town but otherwise. pointless. However the clothes are ok. Cheaply made i had to exchange a few items because the sizing was off but i wear their clothes all the time as they look good and are comfy.
Hardly disspointed when I go in store I allways manage to find something I like.
Baby clothes have very off sizes I brought a 'dress' sized 18-23months to put away. My daughter had one wear out of it at 4months old - as a top! Wouldn't recommend for baby clothes.
I have to say i love primark more than any other clothes retail outlet. The shoes clothes and underwear last a while and the prices are impossible to beat! The staff are mostly friendly and my only criticism is that sometimes it looks like a bit of a jumble sale, but i do have fun sifting through for my bargains!
When you look at the stuff in the shop it looks good quality but most things my daughter has brought, we have had to take back because holes have appeared or come unstitched. Having to take things back becomes a pain after awhile. Customer service is not very good and staff are abrupt.
