To be baffled by Primark's non existent hosiery department?

Ok, it may just be the one I was in today but went in to pick up some socks/tights and couldn't find it.

What I did find were socks and tights in seemingly random locations throughout the store, which was extremely irritating.

Why don't they just have them in the one place?

Not sure where you are but my local primarks all have a hosiery section (not always in a logical place though). Possibly could be a seasonal thing and making room for xmas items?

My local Primark has the socks and tights near the shoe bit.

My local Primark has the tights upstairs with menswear and underwear

My local Primark has the socks/tights near the underwear and pjs.

They do also have a few displays around the shop near dresses and skirts.

Ours has socks and tights near bags and make up.

Mine is ace to b fair but the big one in brum is totally vile.

Maybe it's just my local one then. It says the hosiery department is on the 2nd floor but when you get there, NO HOSIERY! Weird.

Row upon row of onesies though.

They might have moved it to make a dept bigger for xmas. Ladies pjs etc gets extra space for stock so depts tend to get moved about and it's harder to change signs for a few months.

I've always found primark to be great for hosiery.

flippinada Mon 31-Oct-16 21:37:04

I think that may be what they've done max.

Fluffnuts I agree, their hosiery is really good - which is why it was so annoying when I couldn't find it!

I just find Primark totally random! But that's 1/2 the fun.

Our tights and hosiery are lined up next to the huge queue for the tills, but it faces into the store.

It's tops and jewellery I can't keep track of, just shoved in random ad hoc places!

Tights and socks in ours are set up beside the till queue.

Our local never sems to have any socks or tights in the older girls section, none at all, and frequently no knickers either, pleny of everything else but no undies, baffling!

My local Primark is the same. The control leggings that are hidden in the massive knicker section are bloody fantastic though! About £6, look new for months and come right up to just under my boobs.

PS I buy the massive knickers too, in case I offend anyone grin

Tesco was the same, I had to walk around the whole place to make sure I'd seen all the shoes on offer as they were displayed in ranges and sets, e.g. Brown shoes with brown scarves and tops etc. I guess they do it to make you see the whole lot and buy more!? I'm not sure but it didn't work, I just left as it was taking too long...

Is it Bristol? They changed the floor years ago, but not the signs. Third floor.

Did you ask?

flippinada Tue 01-Nov-16 08:53:01

No koko that would have been far too sensible.

Kokosjumping Tue 01-Nov-16 09:39:50

Haha! I bet it was there. I spent ages trying to find it in Bromley but it did exist.

Just have some self respect and go elsewhere.

Aren't the tights and socks by the tills? So when you Queue up you throw them in your basket as you wait, along with rolls of wrapping paper and packs of facial wipes and loads of other random shit.
