This building was built during British rule, the architecture is good. One of the famous landmarks in Chennai. Used to be the window shopping place for youngsters earlier, replaced by the new malls in city. It has all the branded shops. Located in the hot spot of the city

Spencers has seen better days. The crowds are missing and the high end shops have moved out. As a traveler you have not flown 15 hours to Chennai to shop for an Omega or Louis Vuitton.

So, if you're used to shopping in American shops/malls (like me), be ready for a much different experience. Not saying bad (per se), just different. In a U.S. mall, you stroll from shop to shop and if you're approached by an associate it's typically non-confrontational. If you say you're just looking, they will tell you, "Just let me know if...

a pretty old mall which has been around for such a long time ...one of the first malls if im not mistaken. shows its age from the deco inside and shop layouts. but choice of shopping and brands are adequate if you are not looking for designere wear. would reccomend it nevertheless as you can use it as a sounding...
