The Primark Liverpool mega-store is located at the centre city across from the Marks & Spencer at Spinney House, also known to locals as the former Littlewood’s store building. The physical address is 48-56 Church Street in Liverpool. From the James Street Train Station, it’s about a 10 minute walk up Church Street. When scouting out a Primark there is a saying, “just follow the paper bags.” These stores receive so much traffic, there are generally lines of customers going to and from the shops.

Store Products & Layout
The Primark in Liverpool contains 4 floors equaling 84,000 sq ft of retail space, serving up fashion and value to the masses. In fact, this is all part of the company’s marketing strategy to keep cost down, produce in bulk and serve to the masses without the use of advertisements. Each floor is dedicated to an area of service, like many of the other Primark stores. However, many stores do not follow the same layout. With the size of the shopping space and crowds, planning ahead will make the trip more productive and enjoyable.
1st Floor – Women’s apparel and accessories
2nd Floor – Men’s apparel, sportswear, and footwear
3rd Floor – Children’s apparel and accessories
4th Floor – Housewares and decor
Fashion, accessories, and housewares are all sold under the private brand labels only found at Primark stores . Fashion essentials, undergarments, active-wear, formal attire, shoes, handbags, and jewellery is just a hint of what to expect inside. When it comes to staple fashion items, the prices are unbeatable and who cares if someone is wearing the same khaki trousers? However, outfits for special events or clubbing can be a bit trying.
Compared to Other Locations
In contrast to other locations, the sales staff was reported to be friendlier, the floors are cleaner, and although the till queues are long, they work quickly to keep the lines moving. The large crowds are still an issue. This can be partly alleviated by shopping early through the weekdays.
The store sells in bulk, so the chances of someone else owning the same item is more likely. Many fashion savvy people have saved the deals for the office for this reason to avoid embarrassment whilst out and about. While common complaints of the shops in general are the long lines, messy sales floors, huge crowds and lack of attentive staff, the Liverpool Primark has a better reputation in comparison to other locations.
Shop Liverpool Online
Shoppers have expressed their need and want for availability to a service offering Primark Liverpool shopping online. Though the company itself does not plan to open sites for this location or any for that matter. The company has a commitment to keeping overhead down by no advertising, manufacturing in bulk, and selling in large quantities to keep cost down. A website providing online sales would cause the company to revise its strategy and raise overhead cost.
It’s still impossible to find Primark clothing online from other sources, however. As so many people do buy clothing from the retailer, these people do sell their new and used items on sites such as eBay, Amazon.com, and Bonanza. Thrift shops, second hand stores, and car boot sales are also awesome places to find Primark items in the Liverpool area.
