Their undies are crap quality unless you get the plain ones IMO. I got some plain black ones ages ago and they've lasted well but I got a set of frog ones (so cute) and they holed after 2 washes.

Said like a regular goer. Visit on saturday if you don't intend on buying. Otherwise be prepared to queue for upto 2 hours.
In ours all the muppets queue in the ladies section when if you go to kids theres never a queue.

I got lucky last week. I went in on Saturday and they just opened up 3 new tills in the ladies bit. So I raced over there and was out in 5 mins.

I quite like it for disposable type fashion and accessories, but saying that, it annoys me how messy everything is in there, and obviously you don't get the kind of nice store layout of topshop or debenhams etc. I like to mix primark stuff with my more expensive stuff, I couldn't imagine wearing it head to toe for some reason.

We're getting one built in our local shopping centre (they took over Index I believe?) and we've got one in Hemel. I quite like it, but I'd never go in actually looking for something in particular -I'd be there all day sorting through! It's good for impulse buying, if you see something you know you'll be able 2 afford it!!! :p:

But I hate the layout...it's a bit like Claire's Accessories - way too many things in a small space. And also nothing is on hangers, everything is folded, so when someone picks something up to look at they never fold it back up so it looks trampy. And lots of old dears go there too

I quite like the pyjamas from there though. I usually get a pair for Christmas from my dear old Nan

I bought three vest-y type tops from there, they've been washed oodles of times, and surprisingly they've not lost their shape nor have they shrunk!

I'd like it better if they carried my size.
In mine they stock 8 up to 20 which is the same as most high street stores. The 8s can either be really big or hideously small though

Too big, too much in too small a space, too many people = scared me!!!! It has some nice stuff if you're willing to spend the time in there but as of yet I'm not too impressed.

Primark is great. I did stop short of buying my suit from there though . Its good for undies as well and stuff like t-shirts and jeans where the brand dosn't matter. For coats I think you do get what you pay for so I avoid avoid getting from Primark.

Yeah their suits are a bit naff. Coats are ok, but you can get better if you're willing to spend a bit more elsewhere (I got mine in Burton and they gave 20% student discount )
