It came. It saw. It conquered. That, in a nutshell, is the story of Shoppers' Stop. Among the first malls in town, Shoppers' Stop is still amongst the most popular. There aren't too many things you cannot buy here. And there's a very happening crowd in here at all times.
You enter to find yourself facing an up-close and very personal encounter with choice cosmetics. Great stuff, and great prices. Well, not all of the stuff is the kind you can buy unless you have a million reasons for it. And all of them are sitting pretty at the bank. Yes, the place is for the upwardly mobile Indian, but the money spent here is money well-spent.
The deodorants are surprisingly affordable. The regular barrage of make-up products is here in all its glory. The jewelry by Carbon and other leading style-designers covers a section of the store. And another section of trinkets adorns the section right behind the cosmetics'.
The store also has Crossword on the ground floor, the delightful little bookstore that allows you to browse. And a Music World on top. The first level is all about the fairer sex. Find lingerie, evening wear, saris, salwars and Western outfits right here. Psst... the lingerie is to die for.
Shoppers' Stop is also a popular shopping destination for most of men's and kids' clothing/accessory requirements. Find the leading designers along with Shoppers' Stop's own label (called Stop) here. And, of course, all the major brands. Including sportswear and footwear by Nike, Reebok and Adidas, apart from other popular brands.
Shoppers' Stop has an F&B outlet on the top level, with Great Expectations being popular. So if you get hungry after shopping for four hours here, help is right at hand. The store has a big sale once every year with the ubiquitous "upto" prefixed to a huge number in the promos, and that's a good time to visit it. There are other special offers too once in a while. And if a salesman doesn't try to make you pay up and become a "first citizen" of the store, then you're either lucky or one of his earlier victims.
