I dislike Primark cos it's so unclean and way too many people at all hours of the day. Aside from that, depending on what type of clothing you purchase - you can get some really great things there. I have a lovely cotton/linen green skirt from there.

I actually think their jewelry is very good. All the pieces I got there last year are in perfect condition. I wish I had bought more cos three [?] items only cost me £5/$10, when normally one necklace would be at least £10/$20.

Ok my coat got it's first outing yesterday to the cinema. I love it! It's quite light, soft material & can keep you warm or cool. One of my fav buys this year

I bought a pair of Slim Fit Jeans from there a few months ago, for knocking around in. I washed them and they went down about 2 sizes
For women this shop is amazing, but for men it is rubbish.
the t-shirts weidth are absolutly stupid.

yeah, me neither. Well some of the mens cardigans are nice, but you can only wear them once and then they feel like crap.

Those are nice pieces, but unless you're styled up they're going to look cheap and tacky I should imagine. I have bought pieces from there and either they fall apart, look cheap, or twenty other girls are wearing them.

i find that the tills in the mens section is a lot better to queue at than downstairs, it just seems to move quicker.

more than the tills i think its the lack of changing rooms...whenever i am in there and see that huge line of people waiting to just try on a skirt or something i just get discouraged and leave.

The prices are excellent but the quality is dreadful :-/ i've bought t-shirts from there in the past and after 1 wash they've gone all ropey...
