Marked up prices
I thought I could get a pair of spectacles made here. I was wrong, the prices of the frames themselves are marked up way above market price - a pair of ray bans frame were even more expensive than any other local spectacle shop I had seen.
While Paris Mikki has been known to carry finer brands of spectacles and serve a more upmarket type of target audience, the prices are really marked up above the market price. It's no wonder that the stores are usually empty. On the bright side, having come into contact with Paris Mikki staff before, they are nice and friendly. The guarantee that they give you with your purchase is also something that is valuable when buying spectacles - anything wrong with them, you know that they're in good hands. Perhaps the high prices that people pay for Paris Mikki is partly due to brand name.
During the grand opening of Optique Paris Miki in NUH Medical Centre, I decided to pop in to browse since I am in need of a brand new pair of spectacles. I find the location of the store to be really accessible since I work at NUH and can easily just drop by to pick up my new spectacles.
I probably spent about 15 minutes in there and can't seem to shake off the sales assistant. It was such a turn off for me. All I wanted to do was to browse quietly and enquire when needed. Another issue was their limited range of frames. I didn't manage to find that perfect pair I wanted, so I left empty handed.
