Peacocks is a high street fashion retail that sells clothes at low prices. Their ranges include ladies, men's and children's as well as babies, footwear and accessories.
Peacocks is a store that I only occasionally shop in as unfortunately I have had some bad experiences with quality in the past. I am all for a bargain but false economy is no good. I purchased a pair of black trousers some time ago in Peacocks (in fairness I should have tried them on) that I found to be ill fitting, far too long, small on the waist and big on the hips. I also found that the stitching was not up to scratch so I took them back. I did not choose another item, as I was busy but instead has a refund. There were no problems at all with the refund. Another time a purchase a khaki green top that looked lovely when I wore it however once washed it looked washed out, as though I had been wearing it for years.
The shops are large and spacious and very fresh and clean looking. I do often find that the clothes are on the wrong hanger/wrongly sized etc. and find the cut of a lot of the clothes to be of a poor standard and generally quite neat (requiring larger size). Peacocks size range is good as they sell from a size 8-20 but they do sell composite sizes eg. 12-14 & 14-16 etc. I always find this sizing style to cause poor fitting.
I have not purchased anything from the kids range and I find the baby clothes to be cheap looking and materials not soft enough.
I have however purchased underwear from the store that has been great. The store has a large underwear collection that has pretty and feminine style at low prices.
The prices in the store are very low for example £10 for a top and £10 for shoes etc. just not always good value.
I think from reading other reviews that I may just had had a bad experience with this store. I think if you shop wisely there are some good bargains to be had
Summary: Not been great for me
