“First of all, you need to go to Primark two to three times a week, minimum, otherwise you will not find the good stuff that I find.
“I only go to Eastbourne Primark which is literally a small town, the Primark is tiny compared to city Primarks.
“So it’s not like my Primark is good, do you know what I mean?
“I only ever shop in Primark on weekdays.
“Weekdays is when they have deliveries.
“They have deliveries literally most days but never weekends.
“So the stuff that I find on a Tuesday, won’t be there on a Saturday.
“Especially the good stuff, like this blazer – that’s going to be gone by Saturday.
“So I go to Primark Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.”
So, basically schedule your shopping trips for weekdays, not weekends when it’s busy, and if you can, pop in multiple times a week.
Since being posted, the video has received more than 20,000 likes and hundreds of comments from thankful shoppers.
One person tagged their friend and said: “Ok let’s start going three times a week.”
Another wrote: “I live in Eastbourne and can back this up, if she looks like this shopping in Eastbourne Primark she is doing it right.”
While a few others complained that they didn’t have time to go that often, as one person said: “2-3 times a week!? Sorry I work Monday-Friday.”
And someone else commented: “How do you have so much time to be bopping to Primark so much?”
But Brittany hit back saying: “Lol, I have two jobs. One being social media which is more than a full-time job, and two, I’m a freelance live show presenter.”
