Today we went to Chennai Silks, T Nagar, Chennai to buy a silk saree fro my wife. Due to the festival season the shop was completely decorated with bells and dolls …. every where lots and lots of xmas and new year greetings from Chennai Silks to it’s customers. The moment we entered in to the shop, there was asanta toys wishing you. My son go excited to see that. Some small kids were trying to pull the bag from Santa …that’s why they specifically placed an sales man to protect Santa from naughty kids.
In front of the gate itself there were three to four guys standing to help us. They will askyou what kind of products you are looking for and then they will guide you to the respective floors. We went to the kids section and bought some dresses for sisters. Then we moved to silk Saree section.
There we saw a doll with a dress worth of 20,000 INR. I hope that dress was too heavy to wear. The Sarees were ranging from 2000 rupees to … almost o1,00,000 rupees. Every where we were able to see the dady’s were trying to entertain their kids and all the mums or sisters …. busy in selecting the Saree .. I mean making the sales man tiered before they choose a Saree or vacate the place without buying any thing.
First we went to the 2000 rs silk Sarees section. There were full of female sales women. Some of them are polite and some of them were talkative. My wife picked the wrong girl … I saw she was murmuring about the customer who were asking her to show again and again to select the best Sarees. My wife completed a full stretch. we decided to move to the next section ranging from 3000 rs to 6000 rupees.
One lady was asking a saleswoman, “I am looking for a particular green color silk Saree (Pointing a lady already selected a green Saree and was standing in the queue to pay the bill), do you have another one like that …. another aunty handed over a Saree to a salesman and said “Young man, It took an hour to decide this Saree. Keep it in a safe place. I will go to the other floors and finish my purchase. After that I will pay for all the things I have selected”
The 3000 to 6000 range and above ranges where completely covered with salesmen. They have the patients to open and show each and every Saree , make some flits, and asking the customer to check in the mirror, …. I hardly notice a salesman missing a sale. At least one Saree they where able to sell.
Finally my wife bought a kanjipuram silk Saree. I was so happy that the bill was less than 5000 rs.
Happy X-mas and a very happy new year my dear friends. 🙂
