Many times we end up buying so many things when we are out shopping in a mall without realising whether we need it or not. There have been many circumstances where I did not want to spend beyond a certain price but always got tempted and filled my cart that left my wallet empty! *Sigh* If you can relate to this, then you are going to love what I am about to share next. I love shopping from Pune`s Phoenix Market City, it has the whole shebang, and so to stop myself from buying additional things, I carried just 1000 /-Rs note in my wallet. Now because I know I have a minimum amount, I won`t enter the expensive shops. I am going to list down 10 stores where you can shop from that too for just 1000/- bucks! Either you shop for yourself or you want to gift someone in that budget, this will definitely help you the next time you visit Phoenix Market City.
1. Max Fashion
Your first budget-friendly store will be on the ground floor of Phoenix Market City. You can easily pick up basic tees and style them up in various ways, or purchase a single pair of jeans. If you are looking for something Indian, you can opt for basic yet bright design kurtis. If you want a variety of things in your cart, then opt for a basic tee, accessory and nice casual footwear which will easily stay within the budget.
Don`t expect to return with a bunch of things from this store. If you are happy with just one good top or a pair of denim, then you can enter the store to pick your favourite. Westside is situated on the upper ground floor of the mall and has been there for many years now. If you are looking to gift someone from this store, you can even opt for a gift card/voucher of 1000/- INR.
I know you must be in a state of shock after reading this brand name, but yes, you can get things in that budget. You might just be lucky if you enter the store during their sale. But, if you do plan on shopping from Zara even without the sale month, one can only expect a basic tee that starts at INR 490 or you can pick up a perfume bottle for INR 990.
from Japan has really marketed their brand very well. It has opened recently
in Pune. Their advertisements showcase only budget-friendly items. I didn`t
believe it until I visited the store. It is a huge store with a lot of accessories,
footwear, organisers, beauty products, kitchen items, and lots more. Feel free to pick
what you like from here, as you will leave with a bag full of cute and useful products
for INR 1000.
Address: Survey 206/3, 15, Shiv Hari Complex, Viman Nagar.
6. Reliance Trends
A budget friendly store for all those who hate spending too much but love shopping at the same time, then this will be your favourite. All the men & women out there, you will find a lot of variety here for your regular college or office wear. From basic design tees to fancy kurtis, and shirts, you will get it all. This store is situated on the ground floor right opposite Max Fashion.
7. Much More
Doesn`t the name do complete justice? It is actually much more than what you think. This store has many outlets in Pune. But if you visit the mall, then you will find this store on the ground floor. You can buy a lot of things like accessories, clothes, footwear, bags and makeup products. For someone who doesn’t opt for branded items, this will be your go-to store.
8. Bargain Book Hut
This is a huge shout-out to all you book lovers in Pune! This store on the 2nd floor of the mall is going to be a good steal deal. They have a variety of books that are all under discount. If you are lucky, you might even get 80% off. What are you waiting for? If you haven’t been here, you better visit this book shop today.
This is the most reliable store for buying budget-friendly gifts on any occasion. Be it birthdays, anniversary, festival or corporate party, you can choose from a lot of options. I love buying greeting cards for every occasion and hence Archies has always been my favourite store. If you are planning to take your child, then you are definitely leaving the store with the cutest stuffed animal toy. A little bit of something for everyone here!
10. Go Colors
Pick up harems, patialas, leggings, churidar, or palazzos in every colour! The fabric is great and can be teamed up with literally anything. You are going to find many shades and shapes in your budget. Super comfy and stylish, isn`t that what we look for when choosing a bottom? Head over to the second floor of the mall and start picking your favourite colour to match with your kurtis, tops or tunics.
Now that I have mentioned 10 great stores to shop from, you are never going to buy unwanted things. Always shop smartly, take a friend along for a second opinion if you are someone who gets confused with what to pick, always keep a budget in mind to avoid emptying your pocket on unwanted things, and plan efficiently regarding what you really need than what you want. Like I mentioned, Phoenix Market City in Viman Nagar is a huge mall and you are definitely going to find a lot of variety here, and that why I love shopping from this mall. Happy Shopping Guys!
