I used to hate cheap shops and Primark is a good example.
Walking into an evironment which looks like a church hall jumble sale on a Saturday morning is not a pleasant shopping environment. I do not care how cheap it is.
I will only enter the shop, if a friend has specifically recommended I buy something from there.
I recently bought 4 or 5 differently coloured vest tops in microfiber that I wear a lot under low cut dresses to save my modesty. Too much boobage is not really office appropriate. They were £3 each and just brilliant, no ironing and come in such a variety of colours.
Today I walked into the office and my friend "G" was pouring us both a brew (what a woman!). The first thing I noticed about her? Great pins! I mean her legs looked fabulous! And I told her straight away. They were a lovely natural tan and very shiny.
She had bought a box of tights out of desperation from Primark. 5 pairs in a box for £3.
|Primark £3 / box|
I have paid £6 per pair for shiny posh summer tights before now and not looked any better.
|60 pence per pair!|
So today I went and bought 10 pairs for £6 to last me through the summer. At that price they are great value. And they come in small, medium, large and x large. I am 5ft 7 and need a large otherwise I get penguin crotch.
|A classic example of penguin crotch.|
I am fully expecting, wolf whistles and random bouquets of flowers being thrown my way june, july and august in these babies ....
I also threw in 30 hair bands for £1 and a batman flannel for my nephew at £1 too. A good little stocking filler for him when I want to send him a well done present.
The truth is I still hate Primark as a shopping experience, but have got to admit. You cannot beat it for a bargain.
