Disadvantages: Some poor quality products
There's been talk of a Primark opening in my hometown so fingers crossed that becomes a reality, at the moment i can easily travel to two Primark stores in two nearby towns. I don't go as much as i like to, although everytime i go to a town where there is a Primark i always pop in.
Every Primark which i've been to the stores have always been spacious and well stocked, if not a little jumble sale like what with clothes strewn across the store which is a disappointment especially if the store is busy as it can be hard to find those particular items.
Primark as the reputation of selling products at a low cost compared to many of the other highstreet stores. They have everything for everyone; from women to men, teenagers, children, toddlers and babies. They sell clothing, shoes, accessories, a few toys and also have a homeware department. Many of the products are on trend to whichever season at the time but also sell basics too, best of both worlds.
I don't buy many clothes from the store, mainly for quality reasons as personally the clothing items i've bought haven't lasted or haven't washed too well. My favourite and most repeated purchases are pj's, slipper socks, jewellery accessories and ballet pumps, all have lasted me a while and i've found as good quality as the other highstreet stores out there for just a fraction of the cost, result.
Everytime i've visited the stores have always been really busy which equals large queues!! There's often quite a few cashiers serving though and even with the large amount of customers the queues always seem to move speedily which is a huge bonus.
I've found the stores busier at weekends so if you can it's best to go during the weekdays when it's a little more quieter.
All in all i enjoy visiting the store and experience a guilt free shopping spree as the prices are so reasonable, ideal if you're on a budget and want a little pick me up retail therapy.
Summary: Guilt free spending spree.
