Downtown Crossing has finally come back to life! Since Filenes Basement closed years ago there was a huge empty lot just begging for something amazing to be built. First thing was the Millennium Tower, then Roche Brothers, now Primark. This is Primark’s first store in the U.S and I was invited to the pre-opening shopping party. Bloggers and press received a gift bag filled with information about the Primark & Refinery 29 event along with a $50 gift card so I headed straight for the clothes! The store is over 70,000 sq. feet and four floors high of women’s clothing, men’s clothing, accessories, and miscellaneous items scattered around the store.
Around 8:30 everyone gathered around the Refinery29 stage waiting for Tinashe to perform and she did an amazing job. I’m officially a fan of her music now and she’s a great performer. After some sliders and two cocktails I was ready to end the night. I left with three sweaters, a pair of gold earrings, and a belt. It all cost $54 which is a great deal. Now that H&M’s studio collection is out and Primark is next door my wallet is going to be hurting these next few months. I will definitely make another trip to Primark soon to pick up some basic tees and some cute boots. The prices are low but the quality of clothing is A+.
