I have come to accept that I don’t have luck when it comes to getting discounts on clothing items. My roommates told me about IJK last year and explained that they sold clothes at ridiculously low prices, think 1k – 1k5 price range. I had promised myself to visit and purchase a lot of things, but never got to it. Fast Forward to April 2014, after so much preparation and fussing, I decided to head over to IJK…and the items were now like 3k plus! 🙁
It is a very big store and they sell basically everything! Okay I’m exaggerating, but they sell quite a number of items. I got into the store and was welcomed by an angry attendant. I asked where I could get dresses my size and she just ignored me… whateverrr.. nobody can kill my vibe. So, I checked out items downstairs and picked up some things I liked. I searched for another attendant who was more helpful and directed me upstairs to pick up more items. Let me also reiterate that items were going for 3k +, so I kept on minimizing items I was picking since I had a budget.
Before going upstairs, I tried on some of the clothes I’d picked, and decided to purchase 2 out of 5 as the others didn’t fit so well. I got upstairs and saw more beautiful items! I bought leggings, a dress, sunglasses, running shoes (Goal: to lose 4 pounds this month) and shorts. Leggings and shorts range from 1k to 1k5, and dresses range from 3k to 8k and so on. Not bad at all if you ask me.
In the end, all my items cost 6,300 naira, 1,300 naira above my budget, and I don’t regret it one bit.
Overall, not a great shopping experience, but the items made up for it and I’m looking forward to returning! Head over to IJK London and buy beautiful items.
