#PrimarkMeets Francesca Cinà
This year we’re celebrating 50 years of Primark, to mark the occasion we’ve chosen some of our favourite faces to front our latest campaign. When they weren’t striking a pose, we took a moment on set to ask each of them a few questions. Read on for their top Primark shopping tips, must-have Primark items and more…
FRANCESCA CINÀ - ITALY
What are your top tips for shopping in Primark?
The first rule is to take a shopping basket immediately at the entrance of the store, because if you’re planning to avoid buying too many things, you're definitely wrong. For me, it's impossible! So unless you want to try and carry everything in your arms, get prepared and grab a basket when you walk in.
Another tip is wander around every department and check every aisle. Primark always has nice things, and even when I think there might not be anything I need, I always find something interesting.
What kind of Primark shopper are you?
After years of shopping at Primark, I realized that it is useless to go into the store with the idea of just buying "the thing I need" or making a wishlist in advance. The only thing I plan is two hours where nobody has to bother me at all, because I have to go shopping! I end up buying at least one item from each department.
If you could only buy ONE Primark item for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
The hair bands! For years now I've been using only Primark’s, they're a real must-have. I buy a bunch every time I shop at Primark.
What Primark item do you still have in your wardrobe from years ago, that remains a forever fave?
A denim bag with white cotton handles, I've been using it for years, in the city and when I travel. It's also useful when I go to the beach. Irreplaceable!
When you think of Primark what comes to mind…?
When I think of Primark, I think of a fun time shopping, but at the same time I think of how useful it is, because you always come out satisfied with your shopping experience and always finding something that makes you happy!
