What you see – With the famous address of Ramaswamy Circle, Oxford Stationers is easy to find even for newcomers to the city. Despite the renowned Navakarnataka Publications situated next door, Oxford Stationers has been able to carve a place for itself by catering to the demand for stationery in Mysore.
What you get – Situated on the first floor of Prestige Shopping Arcade, Oxford Stationers has become a household name in Mysore. It stocks school and college text books, office and technical stationery, engineering text books, competitive exam books, gifts, guides, computer stationery as well as drawing and art material. To put it simply, Oxford Stationers is a one-stop-shopping point for stationery products.
The stationery and books are neatly displayed on the walls and racks of the store. As soon you ascend the six steps leading to the store, in one glance you can see all that’s available. You will not find fiction and non-fiction books - only prescribed text books of various syllabi are sold here. There are text books for classes ranging from pre-primary to engineering and other professional courses.
They also stock books related to competitive exams like Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams, Common Admission Test (CAT), Karnataka Administration Service (KAS) and entrance exams for various business schools. You can source state syllabus text books for all classes and also Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus based text books. If they don’t have the books that you want, you can place an order with them and expect an early delivery.
Here, you can pick up study material and charts for kids of all ages and guides for degree students. Writing instruments like pens, pencils, drawing material, toys and variety of gift articles like soft toys, pen sets, glass paintings, musical toys etc are available as well.
Our verdict – The only problem at Oxford Stationers is that customers have to stand outside the shop at the counter and ask for the things they want. This system prevents customers from browsing. The sales staff has very good knowledge of the stationery items, text books and reference books which will help you in finding exactly what you’re looking for. Because it is located in a commercial area, parking space is very limited and cramped. You can park your vehicles in the lanes adjacent to the main road and walk to the store.
Anytime between – 9.30 AM – 10 PM
