Zara, Ralph Lauren & Nike, All At Factory Prices, Can Be Found At This Store
What Makes It Awesome
This store started off from a tiny showroom in Adyar in the early 2000s. Later it moved to a bigger outlet on Sardar Patel Road, and now has expanded to a store five times the size of its original outlet, in the same location. It also has an outlet in Nungambakkam opposite Loyola College, catering to the college crowd, who are always looking for a stylish bargain. Dollars and Pounds have everything that a college goer could think of wearing or using — casual and formal shirts, tees, pants, jeans and other clothing like casual wear, sportswear, innerwear and also accessories like wallets, belts, shoes, and shades. It even sells sports posters and sports merchandise (Manchester United, Chelsea, FC Barcelona, etc), perfumes and stationery.
The ambiance of the store is quite funky. They have a hanging jet plane, a dummy tank and even have clothes arranged on a real jeep. A section of the store has a staircase going over a stream of water, giving it a tropical feel. This is a place solely for the youth and has something for all kinds of budgets. This store has three floors of happiness. One section has polo tees of export surplus pieces from Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch and Nautica. Another section has sweatshirts and jackets — ranging from Adidas to Nike rejected pieces. The formal shirts vary from brands like Zara and Ralph Lauren to name a few. The jeans section has export surplus pieces from Levis and Diesel. However, be wary of the first copy pieces, as not all products there are genuine brands. Hard to find biking gear in the city? Worry not, because this store has it all. They have a separate section for biking gear like jackets, helmets, and gloves with amazing choices too. The store even sells rock band tees.
