I remember visiting Primark several years ago and it seemed to be more like a jumble sale than a clothes shop; however, in recent years they seem to have really changed their shops and have increased the number of products they sell and stores they have.
Primark not only sell womens clothes, they also have mens, childrens, babies, shoes and also a homeware / toiletry section. Most items are reasonably priced, for example womens vest tops start at £1.
I quite like that Primark sell most things at a round amount i.e. £1, £2 rather than 99p £1.99 as you end up with less loose change if paying in cash.
The downsides of Primark, you get what you pay for, the quality of the clothes isn't as good as you would find in some other high street stores; they don't do student discount (although they are pretty cheap anyway); they don't have an online shop (I think i'd probably show with them more if they did but I tend to use ASOS instead as I don't go into town that often) and the queues often seem to be quite long.
The good points, it is extremely cheap; they have large stocks of all of their items so you will usually find they have your side; they've recently started selling gift vouchers which is handy as my little sister is a big fan and they are usually pretty up to date with fashion trends.
I've been to a few Primark stores and would happily recommend them as their cheap prices outway the large queue!
Summary: Ideal for a cheap outfit
