Shopping in Chennai- Kumaran Silks, T. Nagar- Review

So i thought I will start this feature with review of my favorite store for dresses and silk sarees. Yes I love Salwars and Sarees a lot. I try to get something new every two months. Whenever I decide to purchase this is the place I end up. It is Kumaran Silks, Chennai. People staying in Chennai may know this but it is not popular as Nalli.

Kumaran Silks has been a family shop for us. We have been purchasing from this shop for more than 30 or 40 years now. Yes this is place of purchase from the time it was started. My grandma, my mom and now me. I prefer shopping here than any other place.

So lets see a detailed review on this shop.

email: kumaransilks@vsnl.net

Online Shopping: Not available as of now
A Little about the company: From their website:

My Thoughts Floor Wise:

Ground Floor- Section A
Cotton Sarees, Fancy Sarees, Furnishing Materials
My Thoughts: This floor is where you can get all type of Regular sarees. I love this section. You can find a saree for every budget. Saress range start as low as 100 rs. Love the variety. This is only place I prefer for purchasing cotton sarees. Their variety is awesome. Do check out their silk cotton collection. They have an awesome range. I have many sarees from this range. You can find silk cotton from Rs.700. If you want cheap desingner sarees this is the place to get it. You can even find a embroided saree for around just Rs.300.

Ground Floor- Section B
Kumaran Park Street- Readywear for children
My Thoughts: This is not only for children you can get ready made for women also. They also have night wear. I personally don't like shopping for my son here. I am very picky when it comes to my son's clothes. Can try out nightwear, leggings and salwars. 

Ground Floor- Section C
Men's Collection
My Thoughts: They do not have a wide collection. Definite No No for young people. Nothing much to tell about this section. Can purchase shirt and pant materials for stitching.

First Floor
Silk Sarees, Material and Dhoties
My Thoughts: Love this floor. Love the variety of silk sarees they have. This place has silk sarees for all occasions. I got my engagement saree, baby shower saree and few other sarees here. Love it. I prefer these sarees than what I got from Kancheepuram for my wedding. I dint find variety in Kancheepuram. This floor is for people who want to get silk sarees on a budget. Prices are lesser than Nalli in my opinion.

First Floor-Extension
All Kind of Dress Material, blouse materials, lining materials.
My Thoughts: I am a slawar person and love to get salwar materials from here. You can get saree blouses perfectly from here. People here are very well experienced and can get you the blouse color you need. Huge variety of materials.

Second Floor
Choice in silk, other choices, Silk material, gents wear, salwar set
Second Floor- Extension
Sarees, Special Launches.
My Thoughts: This floor also has variety of products

Customer Service: I love the service here. Most of the SA are men and are working in this showroom for many years. They have good knowledge about the products and wont mind if you ask them to show you hundreds of sarees. 

Price: Affordoable in my opinion.

Offers: They do not provide any offers as far as I know.

Best Place for: Cotton Sarees, Fancy Sarees, Silk Sarees, Silk Cotton Sarees and Salwar Materials.

Best Time to Shop: All Days. This showroom is huge and you will find people coming and going. This shop is not very crowded which I like.

Parking Facility:  Yes for Cars.

Branches: No
