Ex-Primark employee explains disgusting meaning behind store’s ‘code two’ Tannoy message
You’re browsing through Primark, just minding your own business, looking for that cheap, yet modern piece and then you hear it “cleaner to menswear, code two, code two” announces an emoloyee. Have you ever wondered what that means?
Well former Primark employee George Allen decided to share the meaning behinde “code two” and we actually wish we didn’t know.
Well it means staff have found a bodily fluid.
George explained “urine and faeces on the shop floor is pretty common” – but always cleared up fast.
George also offered up tips for how to get some money off items when you arrive at the till.
He said: “If you want a customer discount at Primark, it’s very easy. If you want an employee discount, you have to wait until Christmas and even then you only get 10%.
“For customers, an item with any kind of slight fault or mark gets 10% knocked off without debate if they ask for it, as I saw many times on the tills.
“But don’t take it too far or else you will end up in the Book of Faces. Behind the customer services desk on the third floor is a thick folder full of CCTV close-ups of the faces of customers who have nicked, conned or otherwise behaved badly in the store.
“I still see some of those culprits walking around the city and I wonder if they know of their notoriety.”
