The Kochland GmbH serves your domestic and kitchen requirements. A variety of products are available here ranging from herbs to cook-books and a wine store. It offers free shipping and quick order processing facilities.
A comprehensive selection of billiard and pool tables fill the large main room of this shop. The length of one wall is filled with cues and cue bags while different styles of light fittings for illuminating your game from the ceiling. Accessories for the game include racks of pool balls, chalk, score boards and triangles. However, despite the overwhelming presence of the pool and billiards paraphernalia there is a number of other past times catered for. Wooden chessboards and sets, dartboards, darts and flights, all contribute to make this a gaming paradise. There are even sets of French boules (the steel balls not the loaves).
One of the most trendiest shopping malls in Prague, the Arkády Pankrác has a total of 140 shops within its premises. Spread over three levels, here one can find fashion stores, shoe shops and much more. Some major brands here include Reebok, Puma, Nike Women, T-Mobile, New Yorker, Jackpot and S. Oliver. The mall is blessed with cafes, which make for a pleasant way to cool off after a tiresome day of shopping. The Arkády Pankrác is centrally located in the inner city, making it quite popular with locals.
All on one floor, this store does not have an identical inventory to the one in Prague One. It has a larger meat and fish section but does not, for instance, carry bagels and textiles. The produce section is larger than downtown, and stocks freshly grilled chicken amongst other things. It offers more elbowroom than the more constricted store in Prague One. Because it is all on one floor, items are easier to find in this store. Watch out for the staff on roller-blades.
Clothes and shoes for the whole family with a French touch. They have a complete line of clothing for everyone, well displayed in a spacious and well-lit store. Their children?s fashions are especially notable, occupying the back third of the store. They also feature select lines of shoes for everyone.
This is a sure sign that it was only a matter of time before the people of Prague embraced consumerism in the form of a Western shopping center. Most are drawn to this huge complex by the IKEA and Tesco super stores and weekends become quite hectic as many choose to do their one-stop shopping at one of the 12 shops which are to be found in the complex. Although it is located in the outskirts of Prague, the shopping complex is accessible by metro and a free yellow and white bus regularly whisks shoppers from the metro to the complex. The area also has a large, convenient garage and easy road links to Prague, especially the western side of the Moldau.
