Bag and shoes shopping in JB

Postby sssdarlings » Sun Dec 27, 2009 10:36 pm

With two children in primary school next year onwards, I need to look at more cost-effective school shopping options.

Am considering going up north to get shoes and bags. Any recommendations of places to go or views on this?

MTIA :D

The Pallas brand shoes are better than Bata's. Can't help you with JB shopping as we don't go there.

sssdarlings' mummy - you using your kid's account??!?! :|

Perhaps it's safer :roll: (after all those disappearing cars, accidents etc) to buy in bulk here and also wait for the sales! Or lurk in our trading posts for pre-loved stuff if you're so inclined :love:

Hi,

We just came back from Msia and I think school shoes are indeed cheaper there. Bata shoes is around MYR 26 - 30 (B first brand most expensive range). We got some shoe white that has got brightening effect for 2 for MYR 6.99.

We also bought school shoe from kikilala (they got local most trusted brand awards?) for around MYR 25 as well.

But you need to weigh the cost. If the cost savings is good enough to make the trip there.

For school bags, I am not sure if they have those ergonomic school bags over there just in case you are hoping to get it.

We bought them at Parkson at some mall in KL. Also saw them in Batu Pahat Mall when we were there 3 weeks back. Most of the schoolshoes and uniforms manufacturers have promos in the bigger malls at year-end.

Any such big mall in JB? We are not going to KL this time round. City square good place? Actually I was under impression that shopping in city square will be no different from local shopping

Hi,

Two weeks ago, we went to Angsana, JB.
Bought shoes and socks for DS1 at Parkson. They have many brands and price range from RM19.90 to RM29.90. Got free shoe whitener (that thingy used to make the shoes white). :?
At Angsana, they also have BATA. Price about there.
Even got socks, selling at 3 pairs for RM12.90.
:lol:
