What you see - In Sector 9-D, Chandigarh, Brands Bargain is a well-lit, easy to locate store popular for export surplus of multiple brands. The store draws huge crowd as it sells branded merchandise at lowest possible price. The staff is very helpful and they help you locate exactly what you are looking for.
What you get - The moment you step in, followed by the cash counter is the kids section. It is stocked with the cutest possible dresses for young pixies and brats. For girls they have short skirts, shorts, T-shirts, tops, capris and jeans. For boys, they have jeans, T-shirts, shirts and shorts in all sizes and possible colors.
You move ahead and you’ll find a section which has informal wear for men and women on either side. While some clothes are hung, others are neatly stacked up. For men, the section has shirts and T-shirts and for women, they have T-shirts and Indian kurtis (mostly long ones). In the middle of the two sections is a rack that has some informal footwear for men and women.
The first floor stocks only women’s wear – both formal and informal. Here, you’ll get shirts, t-shirts, tops (long, short), night lowers (capris and long ones), jeans etc.
A walk up to the second floor will take you to the formal wear section for women. This section is full of dresses (long, short, sleeveless, off shouldered), jumpsuits (most of them are short and a few are long), knee length and short skirts, long embellished semi formal kurtis, long tops, tights, harem pants and flat foot wear. Everything on this floor is mostly hung up neatly in their assigned sections. The same floor also has a section that has beautiful standard size cushion covers and medium sized rugs. Most of these dull color cushions are beautifully highlighted with Tibetan style embellishment.
The third floor has the Men’s section which stocks casual and formal shoes, formal and informal shirts (striped, checked, patterned etc), T-shirts, sweat shirts, jackets, jeans, lowers, shorts, under garments and what not!
Brands Bargain stocks many popular Indian and international brands including Puma, Levi’s, Tommy Hilfiger, Wrangler, United Colors of Benetton and many more. As winter sets in, the store stocks up on bright and appealing winter wear including sweaters, jackets (leather and cloth), sweat shirts, woolen skirts, dresses (long, short), woolen stockings as well as tights.
The price range in the store starts from Rs.190 and goes up to a maximum of Rs.2500! Suiting your pocket, now and forever, isn’t it?
Our verdict- Brands Bargain is a store worth going to if you are looking for a variety of branded wear garments. All the floors, except third have trial rooms. Lack of variety of formal wear can be a bit disappointing. Parking as well could give you some pain since this place is always buzzing with crowd. A good time to visit the store is a little before 7.
