UniverCell-y Appealing!!

Who would've thought a gadget store can be fun for someone whose enthusiasm of shopping strictly ends at apparel and accessories; let me tell you, I never did. My impression of the store was that of the same old boring gadget dummies at display, staring at you... promising latest features with salespersons listing it's worth in their mechanical-rehearsed tone. B-O-R-I-N-G.
So, when Indiblogger came up with this event to visit UniverCell store, I registered only with a prospect of meeting fellow bloggers and owning the cute little speaker that looks like a colorful wine barrel after I write about my experience of the store.


Boy was I in for a surprise or what...
With a blogger's mind, determined to grasp the best from the store to put it on my post, I entered UniverCell's Colaba branch. Indiblogger team member was already on the floor,and yours truly along with other early birds was introduced to the Vice-president, Saumya Menon, of the UniverCell. 
The warm and vibrant lady had taken it upon herself to give us a tour of not only every corner of her store but also about UniverCell's existence.

The very first thing that I heard about the store had my eye brows jump to fifth floor. UniverCell is about 18 yrs old, probably as old as the cell phone in India itself with 500 branches strongly rooted in Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Kerala...and now spreading itself in Maharashtra with 9 stores in Mumbai and one in Pune.
Do I already have all your attention to the hilt? I'm sure I read on...

The Vibrant Lady, VP :D

A live store...
The eye brows which had by then settled on their home ground took another jump at the same floor, when we were told that the gadgets staring at us were not dummies...they were real. And customers could actually play them, hear them, touch them, tickle them...possibly do every legal thing to them that would not take them anywhere near the prison. Every phone or tab is installed with latest apps and connected to speakers where you can listen to music checkout what's new. 
Yes UniverCell is one of a kind...they were the first live store on this very earth that you are living in. Phew! Now why would anyone complain about my eyebrows not jumping back to it's place.

Drop a gadget...
Ahh!! unintentional dropping of gadgets won't make them kick you out or pay unnecessarily either. How cool and understanding UniverCell is. 

Kid friendly...

Touch me so passe at UniverCell. And so, the kids aren't left behind; the kids from the era of gadgets who are smarter than adults with 130 IQ and are wise enough to handle a new phone making us adults look naive. UniverCell's target audience have today's kids in their minds and they have the access to this playground called UniverCell where they can fondle and play with the gadgets and gizmos. 

 Friendly staff

Customer in Mind...
Prioritizing customers' needs are their prime motto. Ergo, on of their cool services include them taking your bigda phone to the respective service center...and bringing it back to your doorstep if asked for...making this unwanted process hassle-freeeee...

We got framed...
The store is a fun zone not just because of being a live one but also because they have a section in their store where you can take fun pictures with your friends and family or even ask one of the staffs to click you if you are visiting solo. Just like we got framed *wink*

Thank you Tamara for posing <3

Fun Continues...
Our session came to an end and we had to leave. Leaving a live store after three hours of fun wasn't a welcoming thought but alas we had to do it. But, we weren't allowed to leave empty handed or should I say empty tummies. UniverCell thanked u with goodies; food and drink- a spinach corn sandwich, brownie, juice and water neatly placed in a brown paper bag from CCD- for the hungry souls.


Bidding thank you-s to the staff and cya-s to fellow bloggers and carrying our goodies I walked out of the Live store called UniverCell along with fellow bloggers taking in an experience worth sharing not just for the tiny wine barrel (speaker) but because of it's unique appeal to people, which did reach to a person like me who otherwise dislikes being in gadget stores. So, peeps, just don't sit on your rears this weekend...get up and explore one of the UniverCell stores near you...even if you don't wish or plan to buy anything. Experience the live store and have fun.

Gourmet and The Midas Touch!

The Tangra fishes lay in the runny masala curry.

Tangra looks gorgeous in Borosil Hot pot.

The juicy Chicken Rezella flaunts itself in the deep Borosil dish.


The Katla Fish Kaalia made it's grand entry.

Jeera Rice happily highlighting the main course.

Dahi Kadhi blissfuly settled in the Borosil gourmet bowl.

The last entrant was the strawberry-Vanila ice-cream with choco-chips serenely awaited for their turn in the Borosil squat glasses.

The main course fit for a gourmet had the Midas touch of Borosil :)
