Back when android mobiles were just taking their baby steps in the market, the city people literally had a lot of time on their hands but nowhere to go. VOC and other few places used to be their ‘go-to’ destination for a weekend idea. But when things were turning monotonous, came the unexpected intervention in the form of a mall. A mall like none other, Brookfields which was huge on the paper and in real life as well. I have curated a list of all you need to about Brookfields and what you can do there
Brookfields was opened in 2010 in a glittering event with party lights adorning the beautiful and the roof. People flocked the scenes waiting to be a part of the historic night that will go down in the books of Coimbatore.
Brookfields is tucked away on the busy roads of RS.puram. It is just minutes away from the Coimbatore railway station and city bus terminal. Brookfields was opened to complete public viewing in May 2010, exactly a decade back on a huge area of roughly around 450,000 sq ft.
It was built by the Brookefields estates pvt.ltd and we definitely are surprised as well on the coincidence of the name of the road being Brookebond road as well. Brookfields is a 5 story building with basement parking.
Bringing the parking to the equation, the mall has a ground level parking and also an underground parking lot specially for the cars. The mall also offers 2 wheeler parking just outside the mall just in case if the parking at the basements go housefull during weekends.
Stores in Brookefields
There are a whopping 120+ stores in brookfields, the highest numbers in Coimbatore indeed. Infact Brookefields was the pioneer in bringing many bigger clothing brands to Kovai for its people to taste the luxury essence of western fashion world. RMKV was the anchor store at first when you occupied a whole 2 levels for its exclusive collections.
There are other stores for clothings like Pantaloons, Trends, Maxx, Raymonds, Indian Terrains, Westside and more. There are a lot more well equipped Clothing stores that serve the purpose of a fashion getaway at affordable prices here.
When we talk about sporting fashion outlets that focus on apparels related to sports, we got woodland for outdoor activities, Puma, Adidas and a few more added to the list. Puma is the most sought after outlet here simply for their newer collections and also unparalleled offer prices and discounts.
If you are a gadget freak, Brookfields might just be the right place for you that houses 5+ retail outlets under its roof, all in one place to satisfy your cravings. There is redmi and Apple authorized service and retail stores at the ground level. Brookefields also has multi brand showrooms like Reliance digital and more.
So overall Brookefields stays true to its service, offering Coimbatore people a complete shopping experience under roof, you name it, they got it. The shopping experience is never a relaxing one here like Prozone Mall, thanks to the overwhelming crowd during weekends but you get everything you need here.
Perhaps Brookefields was the first to have graced the Food court concept in Coimbatore. Plenty of diverse food ranges to offer, be it the finger licking good KFC or McDonald, you got it just around the corners. There are food outlets, south Indian favourites, savouries, puddings etc.
You also ID near the multiplex theater, café coffee day and our personal favorite, Burger King. Should you decide to grab a quick bite during a tedious and long day at shopping, you know where to head straight to.
The cinemas, Brookfields
The second multiplex theater to have adorned the streets of Coimbatore after the legendary KG multiplex. The 06 screens multiplex was launched 2 years later after the Mall opened, it was developed by the prestigious SPI cinemas that has its name carved all over India in the entertainment industry.
The cinemas offered the Coimbatore people a rare experience of luxury cinemas viewing with more sophisticated ambience and a dedicated food counter to get your popular combination of a masala popcorn with a diet coke. The picture quality is exceptional with the screen 1 being the biggest of the lot.
All the 6 screens are loaded with Dolby atmos that offers an amazing sound quality. The food bar offers you a variety of quick snacks as well as soft drinks to dampen down your cravings during intervals. You can get the tickets directly from the counter or through Brookmyshow. They also got self booking computers set up at the entrance.
Brookefields is more than just a mall, it is an emotion, a nostalgic wave of memories woven close with one another, be it the first to bring new things to the city or the melodic ambience it offers on weekend night. Brookefields will always be everyone’s favorite here even if newer or bigger ones are making it to the scenes. Stay tuned to know more about Coimbatore, a side that you haven’t explored.
