Finding things in Primark can be a total nightmare! It seems like so many of the things you see people posting about never show up in store, especially when you’re local store is a smaller one.
Early last week a few news articles started circulating claiming that Primark was now selling their merchandise online, and there was free next day delivery!! The world lost their minds, but upon further inspection, it appeared that whilst their products were available on Amazon, they were double and sometimes triple the price!
Personally, I love Amazon, it is so convenient and saves me so many precious hours, but I also love nothing more than a wander around my favourite shops too! Primark especially. It is filled with so many gems that are usually a total bargain, and as a Disney fan, its the best way to rep your favourite characters without having to pay the often crazy Disney store prices!
However, don’t get too excited. Primark don’t actually have any deals with Amazon, and are not selling anything online at this moment in time, it is in fact third party sellers that are listing the items, which also explains the price hikes.
It is devastating news that the Minnie and Mickey date night set that I’ve spent weeks and weeks looking for still isn’t mine, and that I won’t be buying it online any time soon, but I’m also glad that Primark have quickly let us know so that we aren’t ripped off!
There are plenty of people all over the internet willing to pick up items in Primark that may not be available in a store near you, and many are trustworthy and don’t ask for much more than the RRP and postage costs, and so if you really are desperate for a must have item, it’s probably best to seek them out instead!
What are your thoughts? Do you love to wander around the shops, or would you rather have everything online?
