This store is at the place called ``Chalikkavattom'''. This place is between Ernakulam Medical Center and Vyttilla, and is about 1 KM from Vyttilla junction. If you are going to Edappally from Vyttilla, (that is towards Alwaya/trichur side), this shop is on your left hand side.

You have to enter the side (parallel / service) road from the point just before the Chalikkavattom bus stop. You cannot wait till you reach in front of the shop and just drive in. There is a huge drain between the four lane part of the High way and this shop itself. So, look for the Orange colour name board AND the neighbouring shop - ``PH MEtals'' The neighbour is more prominent, since they will have 3 or 4 of their lorries parked loading/unloading heavy metal. (hmmm... pun?)

Thanks BackSeatDriver. That was quite detailed. Appreciate it.

And to the original thread starter, it'd be nice to include this info somewhere in the first post [with the help of a moderator?] without users having to go through the entire thread.

It'd not be unfair advertising, just useful information.

Man, This shop has attracted so much attention that even Tyre dealers from Delhi are giving out directions on how to get there.

Sam, I am pleased by the quality of the installations too. A friend had an install from there and he is very happy of the quality work they have done. Kudos! Keep it up.

Only lately that I've bumped on this thread !!!

And, what about the quality of installations ? Is it better than Emperor ?

Sam you should get them to do something about that - we had to LOOK for the shop. All the huge Orange signboards are INSIDE the roofed shelter outside the shop. Its wasted on the inside.
