Poll: Following the factory collapse in Bangladesh, will you still shop at Primark?
25 April 2013 11:34 AM
At least 175 people were killed and hundreds more injured after an eight-storey building housing garment factories supplying the budget clothing store Primark and other UK brands collapsed in Bangladesh.
The clothing firm said it “has been engaged for several years with NGOs and other retailers to review the Bangladeshi industry’s approach to factory standards” and vowed to “push for this review to also include building integrity”.
In the last few years Primark has become one of the UK's most popular clothing stores, thanks to a combination of bargain prices and fashion-conscious styles. Will news of this latest tragedy in the garment industry change your shopping habits?
