Nonsense. Retail isn't about providing the public choice, it's about profit. They're not going online because it wouldn't be profitable for them as a strategy. If they could increase profits by going online, then they would. Simple as that - there's no conspiracy / cover-up about not wanting returns.
No. You are nonsense. As I said - if someone is willing to pay more (ie. to cover the additional costs incurred) then that is a good thing.

It brings in extra business. Not everyone wants to go shopping in the real world (see examples in the article). So by having online, even if it costs more, still can yield you extra profit.

To put it more simply, if the idea would increase Primark's profitability, they would do it.

It doesn't, so they don't.

Probably a good thing judging by the picture, waddling to a shop looks like the only exercise some of their customers might be getting Removed

What a cry baby you are, reporting posts because you don't like what they say. How pathetic. Grow up. Facts are facts. Online presence benefits the consumer and can benefit the business. This is undisputable. If it wasn't, then Boohoo, ASOS and others selling fast fashion tat would not exist or have the high margins that they do. Removed
Maybe Auntie Beeb is worried that a successful business which can operate on tight margins at low cost might cause people to ask whether the licence fee is actually good value for money? Removed

i go to a large Primark in the north west of UK. there are 'homeless' people everywhere, there are also MacDonald's and Burger Kings which attracts these people also. Ask yourself. Why do UK people NEED cheap shops like Primark to dress themselves? Because there is POVERTY everywhere in this country and people are more concerned about having the best mobile phone.
"Because there is POVERTY everywhere in this country and people are more concerned about having the best mobile phone"
errr - do you read the stuff you post?
having "the best mobile phone" probably excludes one from being in poverty. Smoking & Gorging themselves on expensive take-aways too. But despite your stupidity, yes, the idiotic choices of these "yooof" are the issue - not "poverty" as such.
