What you see -
Select Citywalk in Saket is like any other regular mall in Delhi. However, visit it on a Wednesday and you will see it buzzing with activity. The mall holds a special flea market from 4 PM to 10 PM every Wednesday and allows merchants to sell their wares out in the open. The fountain area outside the mall is used for this market and is dotted with small stalls.
What you get –
Select Citywalk is a three-storied mall spread across six acres. It has a range of branded stores, PVR multiplex and restaurants. There’s a good underground parking system that can accommodate about 2,000 cars.
The clothing brands here include Promod, Allen Solly, Bizarre, Kimaya, Tommy Hilfiger, Next, Ed Hardy and more. The mall also has cosmetics stores like MAC and Colorbar apart from Crossword for booklovers, salons, kids’ play area, small kiosks selling junk jewelry, chocolates, food court and a number of restaurants. The food court has a unique card system. You can buy a card (returnable) and get it charged. This card can be used to pay for whatever you buy at the different stalls.
The flea market has an ‘Adopt a Puppy’ stall right at the entrance. It is a regular feature of the Flea night and encourages people to adopt Indian stray dogs and provide a loving home to them. The clean and washed puppies with the pink ribbon tied around their neck would actually make your heart melt.
In terms of products, the flea market at Citywalk has imitation jewelry, kundan jewelry and designer jewelry. Most of them come with a silver base and semi precious stones. A silver ring with gold polish and American diamonds can be bought for Rs. 450 here. The market has vendors selling clothes too from stylish T-shirts with funky designs to plain ones with stylish necklines. Pretty cocktail dresses and short party dresses are there too. Most of these dresses are in rich fabric like silk. Cotton dresses, kurtis, salwar suits etc. for casual and formal occasions can also be found here.
Stalls selling accessories like designer mojris, slip-on chappals, jootis, bags, purses and wallets are also seen. Some of these have stone work on them. The bags and purses are imitations and therefore available for Rs. 700-2,000. You can find imitation bags for Guess, Versace, Louis Vuitton etc.
Some of the other products sold at the flea market at Select Citywalk in Delhi include bed sheets (starting Rs. 2,800 for a set of five), bedcovers, cushions (Rs. 300 each) and photo frames. Many stalls also deal in gift items and display gift packaging trays, Shagun envelopes, coin packaging, jewelry box packaging etc. So if you have a wedding coming up then it’s a must-visit.
Our verdict –
Select Citywalk is like any other mall on regular days. It’s a fun destination though on Wednesdays because of its flea market. While the product variety is good, there is not much for men here. Besides, though it is a flea market, prices aren’t all that low. Paid parking space is available.
Anytime between –
10 AM – 10 PM
