While I was at my internship for six months in awesome awesome UK, I thought shopping would definitely be out of the subject – due to the currency at that point of time (SGD1 – 3 pounds). What more, home to stores like Marks and Spencer, Warehouse and Topshop, I did not think I’d be bringing home much shopping. UNTIL I found their local departmental store, PRIMARK! Trust me, I had an overload of almost 30kg of excess luggage just by my shopping. Ranging from shoes, to summer dresses, leggings to tights, accessories from earrings to bangles to sunnies, you name it – PRIMARK has it. Prices are so cheap, its unbelievable! One tip – wait for their almost weekly sales, then you would know what a steal it is – from summer dresses at a mere 1 pound, what more can a girl ask for. PRIMARK is located in any state of the UK. What more, I went crazy when I found PRIMARK in Dublin as well!

Any state in the United Kingdom has an outlet

Ranges from 1 pound onwards

Opening Hours:
9:00am - 6:00pm (Mondays to Saturdays), 9:00am - 8:00pm (Wednesdays),
