Primark (Shop)

Community Quote

... I don't mind long hours in the shopping malls looking for a superior bargain (which can be quite a challenge)! One of the shops that I am most obsessed with was Primark. People in England pronounce it as Pry-mark while Scottish, Irish and Welsh people call it Pree-mark (I l heard it when ... Read review

Pry-mark or Pree-mark? Who cares? ... I love it! Diamond review

Advantageslatest fashion and designs at affordable prices

DisadvantagesLong queues, the mess and some unhelpful, rude staff

" easier on the ear! ''' Primark store LTD and their slogan . . . (look good and pay less)''' '''Primark is trading as Penneys in the republic of Ireland.''' Surprisingly it was founded in 1969 in Ireland (I didn't know that). It has in total over 26,000 employees and 181 stores; 139 in the United Kingdom, 34 in the republic of Ireland and 8 in Spain (Yippee!), of which 2 are humongous megastores in Madrid. This chain store has grown ..." Read review

Cheap Chic, But At A Price... Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesFull of Fashion Bargains...

DisadvantagesCheaply made, Crowded Stores, Questionable Ethics

"...sighed this glamorous twenty-something, 'when Primark started to get featured in Vogue. It used to be MY secret… Now EVERYONE goes there!' Seen any Primark advertising lately? I certainly haven't. Primark, it seems, don't 'do' advertising, at least, not in the traditional sense. But then again, why should they, when the media (especially the print media) seem to be cheerfully supplying them with an almost constant stream of free publicity anyway… ..." Read review

Pradamark - Enter At Your Own Risk Review with images

AdvantagesCheap, Cheerful, Latest Trends, Fast Turn-around

DisadvantagesQueues, Messy, Jumble Sale a-like, Stressy.

"...Known as 'Penneys' in Ireland, Primark slowly started to enter the UK in 1995 and now has 140 high street shops dotted around the country. These huge shops are often bombarded with shoppers on a daily basis as word of the Primark phenomenon has spread. Even celebrity Pete Dochety was seen wearing a rather fetching floral dress from the shop in one of his recent concerts - Rock on! Primark sells Clothing, Shoes, Linen and Household ware (although ..." Read review

Primark: Prepare Yourself Diamond review

AdvantagesGreat prices, fantastic value, good returns policy.

DisadvantagesLong queues, very messy stores, unhelpful staff, uncomfortable conditions.

" not in the know, Primark is a department store chain that specialises in clothing for men, women and children/babies. They also include a home section and ladies...ahem...err...yes. Unmentionables, in other words. They have been operating for several years and they are currently buying out the Littlewoods stores, several of the best of which will be turned into Primarks and the rest sold for a tidy sum to other retailers. It's a good move that ..." Read review

Bargains Galore!

AdvantagesVery cheap, but good quality too.

DisadvantagesSome clothing stops at a certain size, length of the jeans

"=== Primark === When I saw how many reviews for Primark there was on here, I thought does Ciao really need another? Well the answer is- Yes, I don't think there can be enough praise for the bargain store that is Primark! On appearances from the outside, Primark fits into the high street perfectly- the blue illuminated sign is simple yet effective and is easy to spot on a long street of retail heaven! Some of the stores still have the green ..." Read review
