How to shop Primark during lockdown

The holidays are just around the corner, and we all need to get our Christmas shopping done. Unfortunately, due to lockdown 2.0, we’ve all been limited to our phones and computers to find all we need on the world wide web. Be it whether you need to find something for your grandma or your beau, Primark presents a great shopping destination to get all that done in one store. However, they don’t seem to have an online store. Therefore, here are some of our top tips to ensure that you get all your Primark shopping done without the hassle.

1. Primark on Amazon

If you can’t find what you want on the official Primark website, simply head over to Amazon and type in ‘Primark’. In doing so, you can browse a ton of budget store items that may be out of stock on the website. Additionally, it has the added benefit in terms of shopping for your gifts as an Amazon Prime user. Meaning that you could buy some of your gifts and choose next day delivery. Perfect if you need to do a last-minute shop or you forgot a present! It happens to the best of us.

2. Primark on eBay

Another great platform to find Primark goods is eBay. They’ve got several products from clothing to perfume. At the minute, there may be a surge of shoppers wanting to get their hands on selected items. But there is no doubt you will find most of Primark’s catalogue in eBay. But be wary of sellers selling certain products at inflated prices.

3. Compare before buying

A great way to not get scammed by sellers wanting to sell their product for extortionate prices is to compare the online store’s prices with Primark’s official website. In doing so, you can find out whether the product you’re buying is genuine and if you’re paying the right price for that item.

4. Buy gift cards

If you’ve got the patience and not that fussed, you could just get yourself a couple of gift cards. Unlike actual fashion, home and beauty products, Primark gives you the opportunity to buy gift cards and vouchers for your friends and family. This way, you don’t get scammed by unfair Amazon and eBay dealers. An added benefit would be that you wouldn’t have to worry yourself sick contemplating whether you bought the right present for that special someone.

5. Take it easy

Don’t stress yourself over trying to find the perfect present. These are special circumstances, and we are in a crisis after all.  Some would say there are bigger issues at hand than worrying about presents. Even if you are unable to find the perfect present for your friends and family, I am sure they would understand. Your presence and the joyful company should suffice, at least until we all get through this together.

Happy holidays everyone, stay safe and have a happy new year.
