to think Primark is the nearest thing to hell?

Always packed with people. Every time I enter it there is always someone having an argument, or shouting something.
I will trip over at least three pushchairs, and have a couple more rammed into my ankles.
It will take forever to squeeze past the vast amount of people in the aisles.
We will get shoved and bumped - never get an apology.
If you want to try something on prepare to lose a good portion of your day, if you decide to buy it you will lose the other portion of your day.
All I wanted was a pair of jeans.

The only thing that fits me in Primark are the socks. It's like a darned jumble sale. Why do people think it's fine to mess up all the clothes in Primark. Would they do it in Next or Marks and Spencer? I doubt it very much. Perhaps the better class of shoppers avoid Primark. I know I do

I would think its the day and time you go in the place. I went shopping there a couple of weeks ago about 4pm and I spent ages in there browsing about , it wasn't overly busy and just a couple of minutes wait at the tills.... saturday afternoons you are mad to go anywhere near a place like primark !!

I've just stated a thread in Teens, praising it for being the only shop I've found that does a 26 waist, 34 leg for tall, skinny boys! I bought six pairs of chinos/jeans that size there today for my DC, and they are a perfect fit. The shop was empty and I spent less that £50.
But generally I agree that it's a shit shop.

Primark is a hideous place that sells awful clothing that no self respecting person would be seen dead in. YABU for going in there in the first place
But of a scary overreaction
I buy jeans from there because of the job I do. I need something that it doesn't matter if it gets messy.

Ha! My first ever job was in Primark as a Saturday girl. I was paid £1.91 an hour. There was no air conditioning and we had revolting cobalt blue uniforms and no staff discount. It was pretty hellish. If you want to/have to shop there get there at opening time, never try things on and aim to be done by half past opening time.

Get a grip!
Our local primark is lovely, neat, clean and definatly not a jumble sale. The summer clothes out now are well made and pretty. Unlike the hideous shite in M&S now.
Think it depends on your local store.
My ideas of hell is Ikea, the furniture is cheap crap and insult to injury you have to practically make it yourself.
Disney land is the work of the devil.
