Ebrahim Currim & Sons – 155 Years Old Umbrella Shop in Mumbai

Recently during Mumbai tour I was in need of umbrella due to arrival of rainy weather. But the question was: Where to buy umbrellas in Mumbai? Numerous reply and I selected to visit Ebrahim Currim & Sons – since 1860 having oldest recorded umbrella in the country.

How to reach?

I reached the shop via Marine Lines railway station.

East side > 20 meters approx. walk towards Churchgate till Marine Lines flyover > turn left > 150 meters approx. straight walk to cross two red lights to reach Shamaldas Gandhi Marg also known as Princess Street. Left hand side is the shop with the big display board – Stag Umbrellas.

I purchased two umbrellas. One big umbrella for Rs. 500 and another small one for Rs. 300. No bargain. Price is fixed. The lowest price is Rs. 260/- and highest Rs. 800 for an umbrella with 6 months warranty. Umbrella for kids are also there.

Timings: 10:00 am – 10:00 pm (during rainy season)

There are numerous umbrellas shop here at Shamaldas Gandhi Marg. Some are wholesalers and some are retailers but a shop since 155 years – That is an achievement. Great find – said I. At the entrance of the shop it is written: 1860 (Bomday Madras Calicut).
