4. Nathani Shopping Center

The latest addition to this list – Nathani Shopping Centre is just opposite Mumbai Central Station. Its main advantage is that people coming by train do not have to walk longer as they used to reach City Centre.

 

It has shops selling all types of spare parts and accessories of mobile phones. As it is a new mall, only time will tell whether it will succeed or not as one more similar mall by name Aditya Shopping Arcade started in year 2012 in Grant Road had miserably flopped and failed to catch the eyes of shoppers. It is now converted into a market for computers and laptops but has still failed to succeed.

 

All shop owners import their goods from China from Shenzhen and Guangzhou – the two most famous cities for wholesale purchase of smartphone accessories and spare parts.

 

Important tips and advice to shoppers of any of the above markets:

  1. If you are visiting these markets to buy spare parts and accessories, its better to get rates at 3-4 shops before buying.
  2. There is a lot of room for bargain – so you will save a lot if you are good at bargaining. But some of the shops quote competitive prices and do not allow bargaining.
  3. If you feel any of the shopkeeper is quoting you a higher price, tell him you are also a mobile shop owner who buys accessories at more cheaper rates at other wholesale shops.
  4. As it is a wholesale market, there are 2 sets of rates – 1 for retail and the other for wholesale. So if you buy in more quantities, you will get the goods cheaper.
  5. If you feel a shop has good quality goods with good pricing – ask for their business card so that you can visit it later as well.
  6. When giving your phone for repairs – get it repaired in front of you. It is because many of the repair technicians in these markets may replace your original spare parts like motherboard or LCD with fake ones. Although some of the technicians are honest – do not trust anyone until you are sure and gain confidence.
