AFTER intense public debate, Irish clothing giant Primark has settled how its name should be pronounced.
On their website they say: “We like to use Pr-Eye-Mark."
So if you’ve been saying ‘Pree-mark’, then you don’t have the support of the company.
Let's settle the debate, how do you pronounce Primark?

Of course it’s known as Penneys in the Republic, pronounced ‘Pinneys’ in much of the country.
Sadly, there’s no mention of that on the website.
Pree-mark or Pr-eye-mark? Twitter's been all a fluster since the announcement, take a look...
Can't deal with primark coming out and saying it's pronounced pr-eye-mark, it's preemark u r wrong

Just read an article stating that some people actually pronounce Primark as "Pree-Mark". Who are these people? Why are they not in prison?
