My daughter and i discovered primark on our first trip to london on 2009 .
She finished school at this time and needet a lot of business clothes for her new job at a office.
We bought man things and she was ready to start the new job.
thank god we have now a primark shop in frankfurt .i tihnk she is the best customer there :-))
Oh lord, where to begin… this branch is way too crowded, and every time I walk in there I feel like my soul is dying a slow death. You’re not allowed to try on any clothes in front of the mirrors on the shop floor, instead you are hassled by the sales assistants to join the queue for a 30 minute wait for a changing room. Being a flagship branch, I would have expected the stock to be replenished but no, once they run out of a size or product, they never restock it despite being told by different employees they get replenishment stock everyday. No matter what time or day of the year you go, it is ALWAYS crowded.
I do like a good Primark bargain, but I’d rather go to a different branch, not this one.
Only go in here if you know what you want, then get the hell out, quick!
I would advise people to stay away from this store as it is too big and always mental busy and go to a different branch. I love Primark but this one brings me out in a rash, myself and my boyfriend went in a loving happy couple and came out like something out of the Gremlins (not Gizmo, google it). If you do insist on going to this particular branch then here is some advise;
1. Leave ALL loved ones at home.
2. Have a good idea of what you want to get.
3. Wear clothes like leggings and a string top so that you can just try on clothes on the shop floor.
4. Say a prayer! :)
I was in London with my Mum this summer and we were in that Primark store… The clothes are great, BUT: It’s all messed up. There were so many people, that the queue for the changing rooms were from the one end of the shop to the other one. People were chaning their cloth in the store and not in the changing rooms because they didn’t want to wait for such a long time.
It was a little bit strange, but I only bought some stuff, which I didn’t need to try on and so I was very happy about that. Everyone who wants to go there: If you are not easily annoyed by a long queue, than it will be no problem ;)
A test of endurance, not for the sick or the lame.
I would never shop here at the end of the day when I'm tired and hungry and my feet are crying out for help. Make it one of your first port of calls for an Oxford Street blow out or, believe me, you will not have the energy to elbow your way through the more 'interesting' pvc pieces in order to find one or two absolute bargainous gems.
I was quite keen to visit the flagship Oxford Street store and fortunately it didn't disappoint, unlike so many bizarrely stocked Primarks do. It is gloriously huge, although it only seems to have shoes left in a size 7 which upset my tiny feet, and who doesn't love change from a £20.
I love primark and I really do - but not this one. It is too big and is always heaving. They also never have any sizes other than really small or bigger than I am. If you are an in-between person when it comes to sizes, then this is not the primark for you.

I was in Primark, Oxford Street near marble Arch yesterday and just want to warn everyone to watch their purses / wallets as mine was stolen in there, luckily it was near to closing time, so had little money in there and my card was nearly bled dry but I blocked the card and the thief did try to use it and got caught and the police now are holding on to my purse for me. In London for when I next visit.
A woman about 5ft 2, approached me and wanted help to reach for something from a rail, she was in her 50s white / english with short/ blonde greyish hair, and was talking to me as I was helping her unaware that her buddy was going down my bag and taking my purse. was gutted when I found i'd been robbed but so please that they have arrested someone for this incident. The Police informed me that This branch of Primark where it gets so busy is one of the worst for purse theft.

I really want to hate Primark. It's insanely busy, full of rude people, and really really messy.
But I love the clothes. They're mass-produced and low quality but I love them! So, a part of me adores this store, whilst the other part finds it really stressful.
So, until Primark launch their online shopping, I'll be treating myself to a trip to this flagship store every few months.
Very good shop to buy cheap and nice product! You can find every styles as formal, casual or sportwear clothes, and accessories.
You must stop to this shop at least 1 hour if you want to go to the fitting rom and take a look on everything because the shop is quite big and busy.
This store is a monument in London. All tourists have to go to it.
It's very big just at the end of Oxford Street. The prices are cheaps and you can find a top for only 2-3£.
I went with my girlfriend and we left with 3 bags but only we paid only 40£. It's the cheapest store.
The first floors is reserved for girls. They can find underwear, tops and everything they can like.
Upstairs is for boys. there is a space reserved for costumes, one for shoes and a last for men clothes. I found one pull, one t-shirt and one coat for less 20£.
My only complaint is that it's always crowed and you can access at the dressing rooms to try.
A great place if you want cheap fashionable clothes and not bothered too much about the quality of clothing.
I find it great for tops and dresses and alot of the casual clothing and on occasions I can pick up some nice shoes too.
Bags are also a bargain if you are looking for a casual bag but be warned that you may see many others with the same bag or clothes in fact so as long as its not the stand-out type of clothing/bag/shoes then you'd be ok.
I also love the underwear and nightwear they offer. There are some really nice seamless undies which are really comfy.
The homeware sections are also good and great for value too.
The oxford street branch can be mayhem especially at the weekends. I'd say either go when it's open, if then there may be a queue. Else go during the weekday when its less busy or even better drive down to the Lakeside branch really early when it just opens up. It's a massive branch down there too. My sister and I tend to do this as we find clothes are neatly piled and you tend to find what you are looking for pretty quickly and usually we are out the shop within the hour without having to queue in extra long queues. If you get there around 11.30pm then expect to queue for a long time... although I have to say Primark have done well at these stores as they have put alot of tills out and the staff do work as quickly as they can.
overall I love to shop at Primark for the essentials that don't cost you an arm and a leg... great if you are in the shopping mood and don't want to break the bank lol
Whether you’re negotiating your way around a dozen buggies (what idiot is stupid enough to wheel a screaming kid around one of Oxford Street’s busiest stores??)or inconsiderate shoppers who refuse to move their lazy backsides out of the way even after you politely state 'excuse me’, this shop will leave you feeling exasperated and running for the nearest exit. I set out that morning with a clear vision of what I wanted to buy but needless to say, I left empty-handed. Even one of the security guards was cracking under the pressure of working there as he lost his rag with a shopper who accidentally bumped into him without realising. You’ll be doing yourself a lot of favours by just popping in to your local Primark as you’re about 100x more likely to locate what you’re looking for without feeling the need to strangle someone!
Insanely huge shop filled with all sorts of clothes, accessories and home essentials. Impossibly cheap things, some good quality and some not, but hey, when you are on a budget why not?
Here you can find makeup, shoes of all sizes, clothes and lingerie ranging roughly from size 8 to 18 (probably larger, though I’ve not had a good look) and styles ranging from smart suits to casual clothes, lovely dresses, party outfits and comfy nightwear.
However, the catch is having to wade through hordes of other shoppers, queuing for long periods of time and carrying all your finds while trying not to hit anyone!
Whatever your style, there is something for you. This really is one of the best things about Primark! Just remember to avoid weekends and start your shopping as early in the day as you can. ALWAYS check the clothes sizes from the label on the item, not by hanger (the sizes and hangers are often not matched correctly)
This place is absolutely huge and usually packed with bargain hunters. You have the main ladies section downstairs and then men’s and children’s upstairs. You have to queue for eons with your booty but it is worth the wait. I bought some lovely dressing gowns and pj’s for my children, they lasted just about as long as they fitted. I like the adult pj bottoms too, very comfy. It’s situated on oxford street up towards marble arch, I like to collapse in a near by coffee shop after.
This is probably the buusiest shop I’ve ever been in. It was horrific. Much worse than any other Primark stores I have been in. The shop its self was also bigger than any other Primark I’ve been in. They did have a wider range of products, but due to the busy nature, I couldn’t be bothered to stay there too long, which isn’t Primarks fault.
This Primark store on Oxford street replaced what used to be an Allders store some years ago. Ideally placed on the Marble Arch end of Oxford street, it’s a few minutes walk from both Oxford Circus and Marble Arch stations. Once inside, it is like any other Primark, though perhaps the range offered here is better than that which can be found elsewhere. Beware the queues, especially on weekends!
