For awhile now I have been thinking of compiling a list of affordable places to shop from in Riyadh and finally got down to writing a post.
These places have good quality and trendy clothes at affordable prices. Sure, there is Tahlia with a number of brands from Zara to Giordano to shop from. But, when on a budget the following places are great!
- Al-Haram - is located behind Shola. Haram has 2-3 branches in Riyadh (I think). Any taxi driver will know this place.
- Mubarak - is a little mall kind off, located beside Bushra Ladies Mall. I love this place! The shoes here!! They are cute and comfy and the price is mind-blowing. I must have purchased atleast 20 shoes from here. A part of first floor is kind-off pricey but the ground floor has all the budget buys. Also, be sure to check out the girls section on the first floor and ofcourse SHOES! From high-heeled pumps to boots to flats. Everything.
- Majid Souk - Now this is a big market with many different shops. Here, you can find arabian style gowns and other fashionable shirts and dresses for females, babies/children's clothes, many other items, at a bargaining price.
- Dheera Souk - is also a very popular market. You can absolutely find anything from abayas to latest fashion wear here.
I am not very good at maps and directions. So if you have trouble finding these places let me know, I will try to provide more info on the location. I will update this post with more places soon. If you do know of other such places do let me know! :)
Till then Happy Shopping!
