"I was shocked the employee discount wasn’t all-year round but we were told it’s because their products are already cheap compared to other retailers.
"Primark employees can do shopping during their break and lunch, and before or after their shift, however, employees have to tell the cashier their name and the time they finish or write it themselves on the printed receipt so employees can collect their shopping once they finish their shift.
"I have shared that secret about getting free hangers from the hanger bin to some customers and they were shocked.
"They then went to the checkout and asked for some spare hangers.
"I’ve also had some customers ask me if it’s true we do that and I said yes and guided them through where to go to get them and how to get it."

Tanzia left Primark in March 2022, looking for a job with a higher salary but says she will "miss my friends I made for life there".
She added: "If you want to work in Primark, then be prepared to get a lot of difficult customers.
"Working in Primark is also physically tiring, even if you work for four hours a day, so make sure you have enough fuel in your body to get through your shifts."
Fabulous has contacted Primark for a comment.
