    I'm from Edinburgh and I pronounce it Pry-mark
    Ah I'm from Ayr and since we are near Glasgow, the Glaswegian pronunciation of Primark must have rubbed off on us

    But yes, the part of Edinburgh I'm from makes people develop a very soft accent .

    I'm Scottish and call it Pry-Mark and I have never heard anyone else call it Pree-Mark although to be fair when I'm out shopping with my mates I don't think I have ever been in Primark so we have had no reason to say its name.

    Pre-mark, although I think that's a scottish thing!

    English people I know, and Edinburgh ones call it Pry-mark, which just sounds silly to me ><
    Yeah Pry-mark sounds silly to me too! Sounds a bit too posh for my liking and Primark is anything but posh anyway lol.
