Kalyan Jewellers opened its branch in Hyderabad few months back and from then there has been wide publicity. When we had to purchase gold ornaments for my marriage the first option that stuck everyone’s mind was Kalyan Jewellers, thanks to the homely image of its Brand Ambassador Akkineni Nagarjuna. Choosing the location Punjagutta for the shop is also an intelligent move. Offlate Punjagutta, Raj Bhavan Road areas have become the hub of Jewellery shops like Kirtilals, Khazana, Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri, Joy Alukkas etc.
Interestingly from bride’s side also opined that they will check Kalyan Jewellers first. We all gathered on a fine Saturday morning and went to the shop which is beside Hyderabad Central. We would have reached by 11 Am there and to our surprise the Shop was already packed with customers. The collection seemed to be very large. There were many many workers who were very active in giving utmost service to the customers. Interestingly all of the employees are Tamil Nadu based and the problem in communicating was obvious. I didn’t get an idea on why they didn’t go for some local boys as I observed this communication problem causing lot of issues.
Another interesting thing that I noticed is the intelligent ploy of the shop to intentionally arrange less number of chairs so that the ladies would not settle for entire day there looking out various items. Though the shop owners do not show it upfront but the way they carefully pull chairs and arrange them only for serious customers show their knack in improving the throughput.
Our elders and the bride checked for bangles and after checking out lot of models they zeroed on one pair of bangles but wanted to have a lesser size one. The boys searched a lot for the possibility but finally they could not provide us the required size in that model. Then I checked out bracelet models and instantly I liked one of them very much. It was a very good suggestion from the sales boy and I also liked it immediately. Again the length problem arose and they gave the provision of cutting out some portion of it. Finally they did give me in that format and I was really satisfied. The price was also reasonable. We tried to bargain a lot for discount and could get it to some extent. All my friends and relatives appreciated us for the choice of the bracelet and they all unanimously said that it was a marvelous selection. So good first time shopping in Kalyan Jewellers.
