Fixed Price Shopping

Fixed Price Market Shopping in Tuban

??????????

If it is hassle-free market shopping that you are seeking, fixed price market shops are very appealing!

??????????

Not surprisingly there are a multitude of Fixed Price Market Shops now that soothe the keen shopper’s stress levels.

It had been quite a while since I had ventured out to South Kuta, in Tuban so I was fascinated to see numerous shops featured often side by side, advertising “Fixed Price”.

??????????

?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????? ??????????

Simply head south from Discovery Mall on Jalan Kartika and you will easily locate these shops.

Happy Shopping!

FIXED PRICE SHOPPING TIP:

 

Image

The ever popular Ketut’s Fixed Price shop in Legian is often crowded these days and you have to stand in line to be served.

You can easily bypass this however by shopping at Ketut’s Family Shop, run by her baby brother, Wayan!

Image

Ketut’s Family Shop is literally a short walk away and it amazes me that not many people know of it.

Image

Shopping here is a breeze!  There are no crowds and stock is plentiful.  Clothing, sunglasses, bags, belts, perfumes and even small toys are sold here by the helpful and always friendly, Wayan.  He will offer you bottled water, just as Ketut does (and has even been known to offer a Bintang!!)

Image

By shopping at Ketut’s Family Shop, you are continuing to support her family and benefiting from a trustworthy fixed price source.

  • Did you know that Ketut is one of 9 children?  (8 girls and 1 boy, Wayan).

*Please let Wayan know that Exclusively Bali referred you ~

Wrought iron ❤️LOVE…

Over the years, I have often frequented a little wrought iron store in Seminyak, purchasing a variety of items from fruit bowls to candelabras.  They’re always so easy to bring home as they truly are indestructible!

A recent visit however, showed this little shop was now selling the very fashionable coloured wrought iron products.

The range included animal figurines, chandeliers (extra small/small/medium/large), peacock chairs, pineapples, candelabras, loveseats, garment accessories, home décor, shelving…  and the list continues.

ONE STOP Seminyak Shopping…

BINTANG SUPERMARKET

Address:  Jalan Raya No 17, Seminyak

Bintang Supermarket is a handy one stop shop for all your holiday essentials!  Go here early in your trip to purchase basic necessities.  Always busy, this supermarket is the stock-up place for expats.

image

It’s located on the main street of Seminyak, close to the Legian end. It’s large  and has two levels.  Mostly, I’ve found it stocks all the basics – and a few surprises too. You can purchase food, drinks, bathroom products (including sunscreens, though a little exy on the island), baby goods and many other supplies here also.  It really is a one stop shop!  Don’t forget to head upstairs for stationary, hardware and all your home bits.

image  image

Bintang is great for imported as well as local goods. It opens early around 7.30am and closes 11pm.  Such a handy shop if you’ve forgotten to pack something!!  Some friends stock up here for supplies to take back home since they’re so inexpensive eg. toothbrushes, moisturizer, soaps, hand sanitiser, panadol, rubber thongs, bodywash, bandaids, shampoo….

HINT: I use Bintang as a a land mark that people and taxi drivers will instantly recognise.

HINT 2:  There is a reliable Money Changer across the road.

image

HINT 3:  A fab PHONE SHOP for sim cards and data is located on the RHS of the Bintang Supermarket carpark.

image

HINT 4:  If you are looking at posting goods back home, head to the POST OFFICE – also located on the RHS of the carpark.

image

HINT 5:  Although Bintang Supermarket sells alcohol, there is also a specific LIQUOR STORE several shops along on the RHS of the Bintang Supermarket.

Happy Shoppping!! x

Pre-loaded USB Flash Drives are the new DVD’s!!

DVD’s have been available for some time in Balinese DVD stores.  Some are ‘good quality”.  Others, not so good.

The going price is usually 10,000Rph each.  If you buy 10, you get 3 free; buy 20, get 7 free; buy 30, get 11 free etc.

Image

There is always a risk:  some are acceptable quality, others stop before the end, lose quality or shadows of people in the cinema are seen on film since the movies are literally filmed whilst in cinema.

Although DVD’s are still readily available, an improved solution is to buy movies on a portable USB flash drive.  This way, quality movies are purchased that are easily transportable.

Pre-loaded USB Flash Drives are the new DVD’s!!

A USB preloaded with 22 recent movies are now selling in DVD stores for approximately 450,000Rph.

Alternatively, you can provide a blank USB to the DVD store and 32 movies of your choice (from their list) can be loaded for approximately 300,000Rph.

No scratching, warping or weight of DVD’s to worry about!

Simple, lightweight and easy!

One Stop Shopping in KUTA SQUARE

Image

If you’re a little “over” bartering at market stalls, head to Kuta Square for no effort shopping.  Here you will find a variety of shops including jewellery, shoes, sports and clothing stores with fixed prices.  Although fixed, prices are still very reasonable and allow for a wonderfully relaxed shopping experience.

Matahari Department store is located in this precinct too.  With air-conditioning and fixed prices, it’s a shoppers dream!  It covers several levels and sells almost everything.  Don’t forget to take advantage of the supermarket and reputable Money Changer on the ground floor also!

If you’ve worked up an appetite whilst shopping, there are several restaurants situated in this locale.  You’ll also find standard takeaway staples, McDonalds and KFC here too.

With Kuta Square on the doorstep to Kuta Art Markets, it’s too good a stress-free shopping destination to pass up.

HINT:  Drop hubby off at Gloria Jeans whilst you shop til you drop.   They sell decent coffee here and delish iced coffee too.  There’s also free wi-fi and he can chill in air-conditioning as you take advantage of the shopping bargains throughout Kuta Square.

Bluebird taxis’s are plentiful in this part of busy Kuta so there will be no problem in getting your shopping back to your hotel or villa once you have had enough.

Happy Shopping!!

FIXED PRICE Shopping Tip in Sanur:

TOOTSIES

image

If you want hassle-free bargain shopping in Sanur, head to “Tootsies”. Tootsies sell clothing for adults and kids, handbags, shoes, jewellery, quilts, sunglasses, table runners….and more.

The glass-fronted shop is air-conditioned and nicely set out.  It’s not huge but has a good selection and prices are very good.  In fact, you can use them as a guide for other non-fixed market shopping,  Eg,  Roxy/Quicksilver/Billabong jumbers $10Aus, Vans $10Aus, Nikes $15Aus, Sunglasses/hats $2.50Aus.

There are PLUS sizes available also.  If Tootsie has not got what you’re after, she will get it in for you.

The easiest way to find Tootsies is to take a taxi to Jl Pantai Sindhu.  Walk towards the beach and when you get to the path that runs parallel to the ocean, turn left. It’s about 100-150m along the path that you will see Tootsies Restaurant sign. Her shop is directly behind the restaurant and is over 3 shops

Address: Tootsie  No 28, Sindhu Beach market, Sanur 

Phone: (0361) 285184

Where to purchase MANCHESTER bargains….

MANCHESTER BARGAINS 

You will find manchester galore and service plus at Matahari Department store in Kuta Square.

Photo Above of Matahari Department store in Kuta Square

Towels, tablecloths, bathmats, sheet sets, pillows…… You just have to look to find what you’re after.  With so many 40 and 50% OFF SALES happening, it is not difficult to secure a “bargain”.

This store, along with Centro Department store in Discovery Mall, are  my “go to” for quality bedding.  High thread count bed sheets and pillow cases can be purchased here at much reduced prices to what you would pay back home.   I also purchase luxurious pillows for sleeping here.  Again the quality is superb and the prices ridiculous eg. the quality of bed pillows that would sell for around $200-plus each in Australia, I purchase at approximately Rp400,000 each in Matahari or Centro.

Image

The sales people at these department stores are plentiful too.  (Myer and David Jones in Australia could take a leaf out of their book!)

*A word of warning with sheet sizes:  Do take your regular sizes from home and compare them with those written on the packets in Matahari since Indonesian sizes differ.   (I find that I can purchase King sheets that have more depth to the mattress, hence the fitted sheet has an easier fit to an Australian size mattress and the loose sheets too are more generous).

Image

HINT:  Watch the waves roll in over Kuta beach while you chill with a cool, cold drink at the restaurant on the same floor as Manchester in Centro at Discovery Mall, between shopping for bargains.

Happy Shopping!!
