Isn't Primark meant to be frightfully common, though?

Jarvis should've taken her to Primark.

On a serious note though these gift receipts which are available at marks, debenhams boots etc and most high street stores should allow to exchange for other purchases to the value.
Primark have decided that they are not which is why i have highlighted it.

I didn’t mention or hint at any insults. Most people don’t shop or receive items from there or they’d be absolutely huge, and they’re not. They may just seem big on the high street, or that part of the high street. Online clothing accounts for over 75% of clothing retail. It might be over 80%.

By shopping at Primark you’re also supporting exploitation and damage to the environment. There is also charity shops. I bet a lot of people shop at Primark not because they need clothes but because they want, or think they need a particular item or look.

Cmon rudi i was jesting as i beleived you were.
You may be a lot higher up the food chain than i and not require their services.
I think though that wherever you may purchase your clothing might also use; shall we say cheap labour and slightly unethical means to make their profits.

The cheaper the clothes the cheaper the wages exploiting the people including children making the throwaway stuff, so Primark are indeed the worst offenders. I see the need for it with children’s wear but not really adult wear.

Possibly they have done this to deter those who would buy something (especially for the Christmas party season), wear it for an occasion and then return it to exchange for something different for next time.

I gather this is not an uncommon practise with some women

To some families in the countries making these goods it is the only way they can eat.
If we didnt buy from them their lives would be a lot tougher.
The minimum wage doesnt exist everywhere.

Not according to Primark's Code of Conduct for Suppliers - and they were the first high street chain to refuse to use plastic carriers too!

The extra on top would be minimal.

I'd check my consumer rights.
Store policy counts for nothing if it conflicts with trading laws.
