I went to the Primark Boxing Day sale & made a disappointing discovery about their prices, I won’t shop there again | The Sun

BETWEEN Christmas and New Year, Brits flock to their local town centres to find the best bargains on the high street.

Boxing Day sales are often filled with some of the biggest discounts of the year, but one TikTok user has discovered something very disappointing about one of our much-loved bargain stores. 

The video creator, called bhussain079, was stunned to realise a secret behind Primark’s fabulous sale stickers. 

Over 142,000 people have viewed the short clip, which appears to suggest that the store’s discounts aren’t as good as we think,

The TikTok user focuses their camera on a small vibrant red handbag in their local store and picks up the price tag attached to the strap. 

Zooming in on the sale label, it claims the bag was £14 and has been reduced to £7.

But the original label below shows that the bag was £7 to begin with. 

This suggests that bargain seekers may not be enjoying a hefty discount at all. In fact, they may be paying full price no matter what the sale label says. 

This TikTok user was quick to pick up on the dodgy price tags, and their followers are thankful.

And unfortunately, it seems Primark may not be the only high street store having us on during sale season.

One user explained: “And this is why I avoid the sales. Because they’re never actual sales.”

A second replied: “Yes they do that in most places. They think people are thick but we are not – we are one in front of them.” 

A third claimed: “This happens in most places, that’s why the sale in January is the actual reduction.”

And a fourth said: “Yes! I bought this bag for £7 a couple of months ago.”

Another disgruntled shopper stated: “I stopped shopping there a few years ago… not what it used to be.” 

And the video creator replied: “Same, I don’t go often either anymore.”

Some shoppers said Sports Direct and even retail giant Marks and Spencer are guilty of the same tactic. And a few angry folk even called the whole thing a scam. 

Other users found the clip hilarious and joked about the ‘amazing savings’ to be had in the post-Christmas sales.
