A shopper's paradise, a tourist's go-to spot, and a haven for electronics, gadgets and perfumes, Heera Panna Arcade is to Mumbai, what Connaught Place is to Delhi. Possibly one of the first grey markets to pop up in the the shopping sphere, Heera Panna has gradually evolved with time. The entrance has a tight security, and the whole market has a centralized A.C. People mostly hover around the shops inside for their electronic needs, and for cheap perfumes. But its way beyond what the eye sees. Read on. 


Clothes

Heera Panna is full of tiny shops in the arcade, but mainly for men’s shopping. One can find simple nondescript brands, along with Zara, Ambercombie & Finch, Versace, United Colours of Benetton and more. Bargain is the keyword here, as you can get these brands here for half the price, though the quality maybe something they vouch really hard for. One can buy a simple tee here for as low as INR 150 or spend INR 2,000 for a high-end brand. Bargain price: A Zara shirt starting at INR 500 upwards

Imported Chocolates

From marshmallows to raspberry and peach marmalades, for only INR 200, Heera Panna is a hidden gem for sweets, and imported chocolates. Toblerones, Hershey's, Guyllian, Mars and Cadbury, the shops inside have it all. You won't come back empty handed if you go there, we can vouch for that. 

Perfumes

Gucci and Chanel, you name it, and you get it at Heera Panna. Patrons can find local as well international perfume brands, and even though the price may not differ as much as they tend to sell them at the MRP, there is always a scope for bargaining. 

Accessories

Now when we say accessories, it sort of encapsulates it all-branded watches, to sunglasses to belts and even women’s jewelry. One can imagine all sorts of brands here-Rado, Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Omega, Spencer and more. The bargain price for a classic omega watch is INR 2,000

Shoes

We found a lot of sneaker shops here which were selling them for as low as INR 700. From original vans, to leather and sports shoes, it’s a great place to come and bargain for shoes for a really good price as they tend to score the export surplus here. The bargain price is INR 700 per pair

Gadgets

Heera Panna is known more for its electronic gadgets, especially the mobile phones. With its notorious reputation of getting the latest models and soft wares even before it hits the official stores, a lot of stores here will offer you some kind of discount. Find phone covers starting at INR 150 upwards, to USB sticks, hard disks, phones, and more.
