Penneys

Wouldn't it be great if Penney's had an online shop!

I've seen so many cool, funky cheap bits in magazines lately and they either NEVER stock them OR they run out asap!
They never have my size in shoes either, they are always sold out!

I think an online store would be spot on!

Anybody agree... Or are you one of those people who manage to get in there delivery day?

Hmmm.... Good idea! Might take a wander up during Easter, It'd probably be packed!
I'm getting excited just thinking about it!!!

Eh, can we all come too?
LOVE Penneys- an online shop would be great. They had lovely different coloured T-shirts last week for €2 each in scoop neck and v neck. I bought LOADS for a combination of summer holiday, lazing about if we get any warm weather and wearing under jumpers/cardis/work-clothes.

Bless you Penneys.

Online would be awesome, as the Penneys in Galway don't get half the stock you see featured in fashion editorials though. Dublin branches are a little better, but I can't help feeling all the really good stuff stays in London!

That's like having a €2 store online lol. I never got the appeal of Pennys.

Pennys is cheap but did you ever wonder why. It's because most of their clothes there were made in a sweat shop using child slave workers

Well that makes the child slave labour alright then

I was just saying that expensive items are also made in that way, it's just that Penneys sell it cheaper than other brand names.

Anywho, tis a great shop, especially for the accessories and tights n'things.

Penneys head offices- including the buying Depts are based in Penneys Mary Street in Dublin. This is their flagship store. It gets most/all lines of stock.
My friend used to work there- big new line deliveries normally come in Friday nights/Sat Morning for the shop floor on Saturdays. So first thing saturday is normally best for getting the good stuff.
No need to head to London!

Mary Street Penneys is rubbish compared to the Oxford Street Primark. I've been to the ones in Liverpool and Newry as well and they have way better stuff imo

AGREED! Always see people in college in pretty little pieces... NEVER find em! Maybe some people are just 'better shoppers'!

I've seen numerous bits in Penneys that have been in other shops (won't name the shops). I think though that material is cheaply sourced and produced next to nothing. Not necessarily by slaves.... But I don't know for sure!
If you go on ebay, asian shops on it sell clothing for next to nothing as they are so cheap to put together, mark up in shops here are crazy!

I live in Galway. Got REALLY excited about the 'new' (re-modelled) Penneys, think all the best was coming our way, but no cigar. Same old same old, shoes are gone down hill!

An article recently in Sunday papers showed really pretty summer dresses.... Heres hoping they make it to G-Way!!!
