Advantages: cheap, fashionable, good range
Disadvantages: long queues, cheap quality, miserable staff
I was very excited at the recent opening of Primark in Milton Keynes at the MK1 retail stadium. I have always been a fan of Primark but my nearest shop for many years was Watford or Northampton but this was always a long trek for me so I was overjoyed when this one opened literally down the road from me. Yippeee.
Primark is a cheap shop for Men, Women, kids and even homeware where you can buy clothes at low prices, ok yes you do get what you pay for and the clothes wont last a lifetime but you cant go wrong for some things in there.
In this store all downstairs you have the womens section with the tights, socks, underwear and also shoes and accesories, I found skinny jeans in all different colours for just £11 which I think is a bargain, ok so they wont last an age but I dont expect them to at that price, with having 3 kids and dirty hand marks always over my clothes these are ideal. They do many kinds of jeans/ trousers in lots of colours. They also do lots of cheap tops and you cant go wrong with their basic range vests/ tops as they last quite well and are very reasonably priced.
I love buying their fleecy pj's at christmas as they are so warm and these do last years as I still have some left from years ago as I buy them every year, I also buy these for my kids and they really last.
I love their variety in underwear so I stock up here for these to, they are cheap (about £1.50 each) again wont last forever but so good when you are not to flush one week.
Upstairs they have the kids section and the mens section, the mens jeans are great because my husband buy these just for wearing about the house.
I love shopping for my 3 kids in here because my kids are young and they grow so fast and ruin clothes easily, this shop becomes a godsend!! where else can you buy t shirts for a £1, thats madness whether they last or not lol.
I do find they have a really good variety of kids clothes, and not the usual plain, boring clothes some other shops sell. I will kit my kids out often with their clothes.
I generally find the fitting rooms are always crowded, the queues are always lonnggg and the staff really dont want to be there and cant even fake a smile but what can you expect for such a discounted shop?? everyone else is there for the same reason as yourself.
The shop generally always have things thrown on the floor and things put back in the wrong place, there is always staff going around putting them back but seems such a seemingly pointless job as me or you come along and mess it all up again lol.
I would reccomend this shop for many everyday clothes because you cant go wrong with having all the up to date fashion at just a fraction of the price.
