Perfect destination for Puja Shopping in Kolkata.

Kolkata’s popularity comes as we speak of the cost of living. Its way cheaper than any other metropolitan cities in India. Perhaps that’s the reason why it is called ‘The City of Joy’. And if everything is on the cheaper side, then what could be the ideal pastime for people in the town? Well of course it’s shopping!  

Shopping is the most proper thing to do, next to eating foods! From road side stalls to big shopping malls, you will find everything of your need. And it’s not that the street side shopping will fetch you non-lasting products. Rather you have to hop into the most popular street side shops for gaining cheaper as well as tough and hard-wearing clothes and accessories. 

Plus, Kolkata’s shopping destination is highly known for its bargaining culture. No doubt Bongs are extremely talented in their bargaining skills.

Shriram Market next to New Market is also a good place to buy good stuff at a reasonable price.
