Hit or miss: Primark - 24/30

Primark continues to offer trend-led and basic products at the lowest prices in town

  • Upper & Lower Mall, The Harlequin

Product - 8

If it’s inexpensive knitwear you’re after, this is the shop to come to in Watford. Primark’s knitwear offer is bigger than Topshop’s entire store and comprises every silhouette, print, colour and product category imaginable, including mini-skirts and leggings. Elsewhere, lace, peplums, pretty blouses, dresses, faux leather, plenty of coats and even more basics complete a solid offer.

Value - 9

Knitwear starts from just £8 and pretty printed dresses are only £15, while a cropped parka with faux-leather sleeves is incredible at £25. Whatever a shopper’s age, if price takes priority over quality, it’s difficult to resist Primark’s offer. Most items are around a tenner and the most expensive product I noticed was a simple but great-looking navy coat with faux-leather piping at £30.

Experience - 7

Staff were working tirelessly to keep the store tidy and remerchandising it – so popular were its printed and lace dresses that the rail at the front of the store was practically empty by lunchtime so staff were restocking. Generally their efforts worked, but as you moved deeper into the store, it was a mess. Not that the die-hard Primark customers minded; they were happily rifling through the rails and filling up their baskets.
