If you are looking for a good deal on raincoats and umbrellas, head over to the row of shops at Luz Corner, bang opposite the Vinayakar Temple there. You will find a whole lot of practical and affordable pieces, in a variety of fabrics.
For children, you can choose from flowered thin plastic ones to multi coloured thicker ones. And most of them come with a hood and a pouch too.
Oversized coats, for men on the go, are also available there.
Also check out the stores opposite the Mylapore Railway Station at R. K. Mutt Road. Colourful umbrellas were displayed there today morning (seen in the picture).
