You’re Not Really A Chennaiite If You Haven’t Shopped In T Nagar
From sarees to kitchen utensils to hair clips to diamond earrings, there’s very little you can’t buy in the central hub of Chennai. Big shops in T Nagar, like Pothys and Nalli have been around for generations and offer sarees and other women’s garments across budgets and for different occasions. You need to see how big their stores are to believe how big a deal they are. For your jewellery needs, you have VBJ, OKJ, and NAC Jewellers; names sound confusing? Don’t worry, after the 15-minute interval in any movie theatre, the countless jewellery ads you will have seen will ensure that you’re well versed in every jewellery store’s USP and gold wastage percentages. For your other knick-knacks, there’s Pondy Bazaar, which is a collection of local smaller shops that sell pretty much everything else. There’s also the ridiculously massive Saravana Stores that is essentially the Walmart of our city.
