I’m a guy so I wouldn’t normally visit a place like Kontessa. However, I’d accompanied my mum during one of her visits and decided I’d write this review for my sisters and other females who may be interested.
Kontessa is located in a decent area in VI on Agoro-Odiyan St. off Adeola Odeku. Fun fact: It’s owned by Ijeoma Ubosi, wife of Chris Ubosi (MD of Beat FM and Naija FM).
Kontessa is a multi-departmental fashion store which caters to women, men and kids. Upon checking out their website, it appears they actually have stores across Nigeria.
The VI store, which is the location I visited, is located in its own compound with parking space for up to 8 cars. There were about 4 floor staff who were friendly and helpful in identifying particular items we were in search of.
The store was pretty spacious and all the shoes were neatly arranged on the racks. Kontessa stocks a very wide variety of shoes for all occasions (work, wedding, casual, etc.). Shoe prices range from N10k – N30k for unknown brands and N50k and up for the designer brands.
The men’s collection was upstairs with about 2 racks of slippers and dress shoes. Not really much to choose from in this section.
I’d give Kontessa VI an A for location and layout, A for friendliness/attentiveness of staff, but B for pricing because some of the prices may be on the high side for most people.
