“Not the best shopping experience”

Cargills Department Store
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Decent stock of vegetables and groceries but the place pretty much smells bad all the time. Staff clueless about what is available on what aisle. SInce they are present everywhere, it is a convenient place to shop, however.

Cargills is located in an old colonial building that is one of the most beautiful colonial buildings in Colombo. The store itself is rubbish but I heard the owners were going to convert the building into a fancy hotel. Lets hope they keep all the nice elements of it and incorporate them into the hotel. The exterior of the building is absolutely gorgeous and every time i go past it I stop and admite it.

Cargils Dept . Store is located right in the heart of Colombo. You can not miss this landmark building which has a unique brick red colour building on York Street. it is just a stones throw away from The Presidents House.
This dept store also has a Super market. The prices are very competitive.

Open from 6am to 11pm. You get every ware in Colombo and out side Colombo... Its a super market... If you want to go for the biggest and the oldest store please try Colombo -2 (Union place next to Hilton residences)
