The place offers Flat 60% off on all purchase. And had some decent Collection. Shirts can cost you a max of 120 - 150 INR and Trousers for like 250 INR. Got myself a jean , 3 shirts and 2 T-Shirts and the whole things summed up to only 800rs after discount!!!!!

Watch out for the EXPIRY dates on products guys. By mistake, got expired goods like juices etc. BE REALLY CAREFUL about the products

It happened when i brought the real juice pack from reliance Bangalore. After one day they swelled like balloon without opening then I saw the date. It was expired. They took back and gave me the fresh ones. I put the complaint in their register but i think nothing will happen
Other deals were really good !!

Its even better in Hyderabad. Reliance retail's clothes business has some setup in Banjara Hills here. They are SMSing with offers of 50%+30% flat off everyday. I was just wondering how they are managing to do this! A Rs. 1200 worth of Van Heusen shirt for Rs. 240? Is it really a genuine deal? Somehow I am very circumspect about it. Sounds to me like one of those basement sales.

But for a Van Heusen at Rs 240 might as well go for a cellar sale.

The Banjara place is hardly any distance from my home. Will be checking it out.

the chennai outlet does not stock any Van Heusen shirts. I guess its their own brands but definetly not allen solly / van heusen or any other madura garments product.

Not any big brands. Guess its there own production. But for the price they are worth it!! My view.

IMO, if it isnt a brand and they are selling for Rs.150, it is not cheap but decent. As there are so many clothes store outlet that houses un-branded stuff and they all price between Rs.150-Rs.250.

I think Biz Bazaar is an example. But, the quality of these unbranded stuff really sucks and they shrink way waster than branded stuff.

In Hyderabad, Koutons has a sale 365 days a year. 50% + 30% on 50% ( some unique scheme). I think it is only a tactic of raising the price and offering a discount all year long. Though, Kouton has good quality clothes.

They should have picked up export surplus in a very large scale.
But, transferring the price advantage? Sounds quite fishy.
I've never known Reliance to have a Halo over it.

for that matter, no one has a halo

Except for a few C-TBHPians.

Thanks buddy. Just visited the shop. But never thought I would buy for 2.8K

Btw, got a free coupon for 3days/2nights stay around India in select hotels. Ofcourse, it does have some hidden charges like 500+ but,... seems fine.

You get this couppon if your bill exceeds 2.5K, so additional bonus
