Primark is popular for many reasons, but the main one is its low prices. From dirt cheap kids' clothes to bargain bras, shoppers can save a fortune compared with other high street retailers.

So you'd think that a trip to the store's cafe would be a low cost affair too wouldn't you, a bit like Ikea. You don't want to be going there for budget furniture only to blow it on some expensive grub to fuel your shopping trip, hence the popularity of its low-cost hot dogs and meatballs.

Yet in Primark, the prices are a bit more puzzling. When you can pick up three pairs of flip flops for almost the same price as a latte, something doesn't quite add up.
