26 reviews of Primark in English
They tend to copy quite a lot of shops and their current trends which annoys me personally but if you're looking for a cheaper version of an expensive item you like, i guarantee they'll have it.
This particular Primark store isn't that big compared to the one in Oxford St. but you'll find their stores in a lot of places if they don't have what you're looking for here. There's new ones opening all the time.
In general this chain of shop seems like an injection of hell. However the Hammersmith branch isnt the worst one (Oxford St branch is unimaginably awful).
It all depends on when you go. If you can visit it on a weekday during the day it isnt a complete mess and you wont have to wait to pay for longer than 10 minutes. If you foolishly decide you want to go on saturday then expect the worst, iv been waiting to pay in this place for 30 minutes before and i ended up just leaving! Don’t expect anything from the staff, but then your paying rock bottom for the clothes so you shouldnt expect much anyway.
All in all though try going to H&M or Uni Qlo, they are almost as cheap and are much better places!
Not my favourite Primark store, I like Primark in general for cheap summer holiday clothes, always a good selection. But the Hammersmith store does seem to be messier than other stores, most things I looked at today were not on the correct hangers which lead to a bit of a headache going through the racks. But in a good location and can't argue with the prices.
i went to primark hammersmith this morning, i was looking for women shirts, so i was just turning around because everything was messed up because of the size, and the security guy came to me and he told me,move from here otherwise i quick you out, i told him why he said this is the primark policy,he said you just turning around, i told him of course everything is messed up!!!i was so furious, i was looking for the manager but couldn't find him, but this security guy was so rude and it's not his business, if i want to spend 10 hours i will, i'm paying with my money!!!!!anyway i will come back this days to talk to the manager!!!!(i'm a man just to specify)
I've been to loads of Primarks, but I definitely prefer the Hammersmith Branch!!! It is nicely section, so it is so easy to browse for the items you like.
There are two floors and I find myself spending an hour on each floor.
The selection is fantastic, but it can get really messy.
I would definitely advise people to visit the store during school time, as from 3.30pm it becomes overly crowded and the store is practically tipped upside down!!!
Primark is the epitome of pile 'em high and sell 'em cheap: the racks are absolutely bursting with stock, often making it hard to find the size you want, and this store seems particularly bad at putting the right size on the correctly labelled hanger.
The clothes are amazingly cheap, generally well designed, and not bad quality, although in menswear at least, polyester generally triumphs over wool and cotton, so to that extent you get what you pay for. Bear in mind there is some controversy about the conditions their suppliers’ staff have to work in (along with some other well known High Street retailers), so do your research and come to a view yourself if this is important to you.
Excellent selection of bedding accessories and towels upstairs. Excellent women’s and men’s clothes downstairs. More women’s wear upstairs. Excellent budget prices throughout the store.
Busy place from late morning onwards - payment queues can get very frustrating.
Great store, eveything is set out very neatly and its not a complete jumble sale like some of the stores i have shopped in, in the past.
It has some great items… but there is a lot of tat in there so you have to really dig for the good stuff! Very good prices - credit crunch beating prices infact.
Sometimes it is hard to find your size though but there are usually lots of staff about to give you a hand.
I like this branch of primark. Hammersmith is quite well laid out and spaced out and, with the opening of other primarks nearby, is a lot less manic than it used to be… at certain times of day it is almost pleasant to shop here!
It has a good range of stock. Granted, not as good as Oxford Street, but it’s a lot easier for us West Londoners to reach, not to mention the shorter queues!
Hammersmith can still be pretty crowded though, don’t get me wrong. Best to avoid Saturdays if possible as the queues can be very long!
Overall, this branch doesn’t have the biggest range of clothes but it has a decent one, and I’d rather come here than face the ridiculous queues in Oxford Street!
ok it`s a primark so nothing new to add here as most people have been to one that might go, but it`s pretty big for the shops in that area. Always busy to best go outside of peak shopping times. Cheap and cheerful things so do not expect things to last years after year.
This store is based on 3 levels and is quite well spaced out, one big problem is the size of the queues expect to wait in line for some time. If you want to bring something back another big line. So try before you buy and look at the items well.
Great clothes for cheap prices. The quality of the clothes is very decent.. I DID have a coat with a hole in the pocket & missing buttons but they exchanged it quickly & easily.. the only problem is that they may be out of your size if you don’t exchange your item quickly. This store is so popular you can literally find it by following the hoard of people carrying brown paper bags labeled primark on oxford street. The reason everyone’s such a fan of primark is the variety of nice clothes for such great prices. So it’s very likely you’ll find something for you. Especially if you’re a tourist on a budget. From jackets to lingerie they pretty much have everything you need. (jackets for example can be 25£, underpants 1.50£..)
Primark on Oxford Street is the biggest and one of the best. The stock that comes into there, you will either see before the smaller Primarks or you will never see it. When you see something just buy as you may not find it again. There is a whole floor of clothes and the lingerie section is massive. The top floor has sooooo many shoes for ladies, handbags, jewellery. There is a kids clothes section on the same floor as well as home decor like cushions etc.
The only down fall is that there are so many people there all the time so shopping can get hard and you will never get a chance to go in the fitting room as queue’s are ridiculous so you may have to try on the shop floor as people do tend do that.
Overall a very nice look of the store, greatly staffed and very clean even though a lot of people shop there, the staff is working hard to keep it looking good. Also you always get served very quickly at till points no matter how long the queue may be.
What you have to remind yourself before you enter in the fray at Primark, is that you are still a decent human. A sort of madness seems to overcome people on a weekend visit to any Primark country wide. People push and shove and throw piles of clothes about in the hunt for a bargin in the right size….
If you want something cheap and cheerful for a night out, definately a must. If you need basics ie plain tshirts, shirts, jumpers, then a great place, and these days I have about 7 drawers full of primark underwear in every colour going…..
Its definately an experience even if you don’t buy anything!
There’s one thing you have to ask yourself when holding up a pair of shoes for £2: 'Can I live with the fact that this was quite likely stitched together by some under paid lady/child/lady carrying child in another country?’ Luckily I seem to be able to. Primark is great for what I love to call 'disposable fashion’ - the everyday women’s answer to staying up to date with the rapidly changing fashion. No of course it’s not going to last long but if you think things at those prices are you’re horribly mistaken. But there as some great. colourful clothes and accessories out there and as much as we’d deny it, we all own something from Primark.
This shop is one of the large ones but avoid on Saturdays as you could queue for a very long time to try on clothes and pay.
Not a very good primark as they go, although i’m not their greatest fan anyway. The queues at the cash desk are horrendous and i’ve walked out a few times in disgust. They do try to keep it clean though but you’ll probably trip over things on the floor during peak times. I preferred the shop when it was Beales - Ealing needs a department store not more cheap clothes.
It’s Primark… there isn’t really much else to it.
As the previous reviewer stated, this only adds to the “cheapening” of Ealing Broadway and follows the recent trend of shop closures and pound shop openings.
It isn’t entirely bad if you want cheap clothing with footprints on it, but I’m not convinced that it appeals to everyone.
Definately not me…
How did I ever live without Primark? I don’t remember…
I feel so lucky to be so close to this shop, it’s a bit dangerous. It’s also slightly embarrassing how many pairs of undies I now own as a result of their ridiculously low prices. I described it to my confused American friend as the clothing section of Target, but better. She understood and got a little too excited about it.
The problem with places like this can be that you are sacrificing quality for price. However, I have a bikini I bought there over two years ago that was still in rotation this past summer! So there.
At least everyone can rest easy knowing they are getting their birthday presents wrapped in Disney Princess paper this year…
This is a new Primark, so its light, glass, mirrors, speaking queue systems, and clothes all over the floor, rather than mdf, darkness, pub carpets, and clothes all over the floor.
This new addition to the Broadway centre is good if you live in Ealing and you want to buy an item of clothing which will cost less than you would have previously paid to get to a Primark store on the train. Its bad if you are concerned about the cheapening of Ealing, with its mushrooming pound shops and empty stores in the Broadway. We’ll leave that debate for another day, and focus on what it the most important debate concerning Primark.
Wikipedia has this to say:
In England the name is generally pronounced Pry-mark (first syllable is pronounced “pry” and the second syllable with “mark”). However, in Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and Scotland the name is usually pronounced /p?i’m??k/ (first syllable is pronounced “pree”).
The pronunciation of name leads to some debate and while some believe the store to have originally been pronounced “Pry-mark” /p?a?’m??k/, the company had an intensive annual advertising campaign each Christmas during the 1980s where the store was referred to on several occasions throughout the song/jingle as “Pre-Mark” /p?i’m??k/. Although in the Republic of Ireland, this lyric was redubbed as 'Penneys’.  However on the Primark corporate video, the company is pronounced “Pry-mark” /p?a?’m??k/
We all know Wikipedia can’t be trusted, but I can personally vouch for the celtic 'pree-mark’ argument. I am also willing to believe the but about the corporate video. Pry-mark it is. The internet said so.
