Primark has over 300 stores across the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA. Primark stores are often large in size and based on high streets and inside shopping centres. When a Primark store opens in an area for the first time, there is often excitement from local residents. Stores have a range of products, in departments such as womenswear, menswear, kidswear, home decor and more.
Primark clothes tend to be trend-focused but affordable. The womenswear range covers everything from basic jersey t-shirts to gym clothes, denim and going out dresses. In the menswear department, you can find everything from underwear to full suits. For children, you’ll find one piece suits for when they’re tiny, cute little outfits for when they’re toddling around and uniform for when they head off to school.
Primark also has an exclusive licence to sell merchandise for many film studios. Ranges include Harry Potter, Marvel superheroes, Disney and Star Wars.
Clothing is very cheap, with basic t-shirts starting at £1.50 and jeans from approximately £10. As such, Primark has earned a reputation for being a fast, throwaway clothing retailer which has raised questions about ethics in the past. However, Primark has been working to improve employee conditions at their factories.
The range of clothes for children at Primark is extensive. You can purchase clothes for a child that’s anywhere between newborn and teenage years. Thanks to Primark’s relationship with film studios, you’ll find lots of clothes emblazoned with their favourite film characters, such as the minions from Despicable Me or Elsa from Frozen. You’ll also be able to find clothes with popular musicians such as Justin Bieber and One Direction which are sure to please your little one.
If you’re looking to decorate your home on a budget, you don’t need to look any further than your local Primark store. You will find everything from bedding to soft furnishings, laundry baskets to stationary, all incorporating the latest trends.
Most recently, Primark launched a homeware range in collaboration with the internet’s most famous feline, Grumpy Cat. You can now purchase Grumpy Cat bedding, cushions and more.
Despite calls from Primark devotees to open an online store, Primark products are currently unavailable to purchase online. Instead, the Primark website offers you the chance to see the latest products and how to style them. There’s also a feature called Primania, where you can see what others have purchased and how they’ve worn them- you’ll often see fashion bloggers styling out their affordable attire on this feature.
Primark Store Locator
Another service which is available online is the Primark store locator. You can search for your nearest store by allowing the Primark website to see your location or by inputting your postcode. From there, you’ll be able to see the store address, how far away it is, the store opening times and how to get there, with the addresses of the nearest car park and bus station. You’ll also be able to see the Primania looks that customers have created using products purchased from the stores.

Primark first opened in Dublin in 1969 under the name Penney’s. The business became successful in Ireland and the company opened four stores outside of towns in England in 1973. The first English store was located in Derby. The company was unable to use the name Penney’s as it was trademarked by J.C Penney, so the name ‘Primark’ was created for use outside of Ireland.
Today, Primark is stocked in Selfridges stores in the Manchester Trafford Centre, Birmingham Bull Ring centre and Oxford Street, London.
The company has international headquarters in Dublin, Ireland with a corporate headquarter building in Reading, England. There are around 300 stores following a period of rapid expansion throughout the 2000’s. Primark has over 50,000 employees working throughout the stores, in management and at the head offices.
