What you see - Writing instruments, files and folders, drawing instruments, digital cameras, gifts, computer accessories, diaries, organizers…you name it and it’s all here at Venus Traders. This 6,000 square feet store is sure to amaze you by the sheer number of items that it stocks. In fact, we think that it is a complete stationery supermarket. So just like you would do at any other supermarket, pick up a nice shopping basket as you enter this store. You may not do this at any other stationery store, but at Venus Traders, you may just need to.
What you get - As you make your way through the aisles, you will come across racks of writing instruments, where you can find pens ranging from a lowly Rs. 5 to a pricey Rs.18,000. Prominent brands like Reynolds and Parker and designer names like Cartier and Senator, all share the same shelf space.
The best thing about the store is its excellent display, which makes browsing a pleasure and zeroing in on a specific product, extremely convenient. This means, separate aisles for files and folders, drawing material and the like. In fact, the store seems to offer everything that an office would need. A small but useful item that you should pick is one of those pocket diaries that can be hung around the neck. These cost Rs. 30 a piece.
Another impressive section of this store deals with products related to art. So if you are an artist looking for paint brushes, water colors and pens for calligraphy, Venus is the store that you should head to. They have a different area earmarked exclusively for art supplies which also stocks an interesting collection of books on art.
Computer accessories like pen drives, anti-virus software, speakers and CDs are also available here. If you can’t find something specific that you are looking for, the friendly customer support executives are always ready to help you.
Our verdict – Venus is a one-stop-shop for all your stationery needs with the only negative aspect being its limited parking space.
