Each branch of Primark is 8000 floors high, and each of those floors stretches on round infinite corners like an air-conditioned Escher drawing. On every floor there are 18,000 different types of cute animal onesies, 1200 variations of plastic aviators, and rows of XXL T-shirts featuring slogans like “Gym hair, don’t care!” or, inexplicably, “New York. Manhattan. Brooklyn.”
