There were huuuuge crowds outside our one when it opened.

It opened today at 10am (I was at work yesterday and hoped it would have opened then, but instead got to look into a store entirely full of clothes and empty of people. Through the window).

How can they sell it sooo cheap? Sweatshop labour? Child labour? Something is fishy - it is just toooo cheap.

Oh I love Primark. You can buy some fabbo pieces from there. I get most compliments from people when I am wearing stuff from Primark.

there were inaccurate rumours going around that every item in the shop was £1. which may have been responsible for the madness.

But where in Spain? Shoddy factories paying less than minimum wage? Not being funny, genuinly curious.
