The area
Neighborhood: George Town/Parry’s Corner
George Town is one of the busiest and most commercial neighbourhoods of Chennai. It may not boast of pubs or restaurants, but it surely offers something that the rest of Chennai can’t - a strong whiff of history. This historical area located in north Chennai is where the city of Madras was officially born in 1640 alongside Fort St. George. A walk here leads you to the well-established specialised bazaars and wholesale markets selling everything under the sun: fabrics, fruits, vegetables, spices, fabrics, camera, perfumes, jewellery, etc. Home to the High Court and other State institutions and famous for a large resident Sindhi and Marwari community, George Town is a rich congregation of shrines of different faiths within its boundaries – from Hindu and Jain temples to churches, mosques and synagogue. If you are craving some authentic North Indian food, head to streets of Sowcarpet for chaat, vada pav and other popular street snacks.
How to get there
  • High Court • 3 min walk
  • Mannadi • 10 min walk

This sale is a mecca for those looking to buy anything in bulk. You can find every single item that you would need at wholesale prices. All the way from electronic goods to ready-made clothes are sold at wholesale prices but be prepared to brave the crowd because you would not want to get lost in this place. If you are someone like me who would not mind getting lost and finding new places, this is definitely a place to visit, even if you do not end up buying anything, just like me.

Parry's Corner is near to George Town, Chennai and is commonly known as Parry's. It is very near to the Chennai Port and Beach station for local trains It is named after Thomas Parry who set up the EID Parry Company which is still there on the corner. The Chennai High Court and the High Court Bus Terminal which serves as the main hub for bus services running throughout the city and you have the Burma Bazaar also nearby it. The Pincode of Chennai starts from here which is Chennai-600001.

It has many popular schools like St. Mary's Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School for boys, St. Columban's Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School for Girls. I myself studied in St.Mary's Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School wherein I passed out of the school in 1996. Parry’s Corner is one of the oldest place in Chennai and very popular for shopping.

It has a wholesale shopping market dealing in a variety of products ranging from fabrics, cosmetics, stationery items, etc. There are so many streets in this area where people in Chennai come for shopping. One has to walk and do shopping in these streets as you cannot travel in a vehicle since the streets are crowded.

Some of the famous streets are Godown Street Garments where you get Sarees, Dress materials, fabrics, etc. Devaraja Mudali Street where you get Glasswares, colours, dyes, etc.Kasi Chetty Street where you get imported goods, perfumes, handbags, electronic goods, Cosmetics, gift items, hangbags, toys, etc. Nainiappa Naicken Street where you get the Surgical items, Exercise equipments, etc.Bunder Street where you get all stationery items. Audiappa Naicken Street where you get Dry Fruits and Spices. Anderson Street where you get all paper products, wedding invitations, etc.

One most be aware that since this is a wholesale market most of the items have to be purchased in bulk like stationary items, wedding invitations, paper products,etc. But Items such as Cosmetics, Perfumes, Handbags, toys, etc can be purchased on a retail basis.

Parrys Corner is a area wherein I have known it very well since my childhood and frequently visit it every week, infact I pass by this area on my way back from office to my home.

Not an attraction but a big market area. Not exactly it is Parry's corner but the place near Pookadai bus stop opposite to Broadway bus station on NSC Bose road with many narrow long streets branches off is where all whole sale markets functions in Chennai. Right from fabrics, electrical, electronics, Chinese, plastic, decorative, home and kitchen needs, stationary items, imported items, etc, etc, all can be bought here for cheap whole sale price. Except the Chinese goods, other items should be fine if you buy at a higher price but much cheaper than the same items bought outside this area. Be cautious when you enter many cuts in all those streets because every chance is there to miss the way. No cheating business is seen.
