Vinod K G, 32, who has been running the shop for eight years, says that they sell more than 75 varieties of products, sourced from various co-operative societies from around the country.

They offer 40% percent discount on apparels and dress materials from August to November. However, the discounts are not applicable on herbal products, national flags and Gandhi topis. “Flags and topis are considered national symbols, hence there is no discount,” says Vinod.
