Deccan Pen Stores,
Hyderabad - 500001
What you see – Deccan Pen Store looks like a typical stationery store with large display units showcasing pens and office paraphernalia. But then, what strikes you instantly are the ranges of pens juxtaposed neatly inside the glass.
Located at Abids, in Orient Estate, Deccan Pen Store was established in 1928 and has been a distributor and repairing center of British pen brands. This octogenarian store has ever since become a heritage place for most of the Hyderabadis. Much like the management, customers of this store have spanned generations, with favorites ranging from pens, pencils, inks and diaries to even general stationery.
What you get – Well, almost anything and everything in stationery! But the store prides for its largest collection of pens and pencils – all from local, national and international brands. A unique thing about this store is that you get anything related to pens here – nibs, feeds, springs, clutches…you name it and they have it.
Some of the legendary foreign brands including Sheaffer, Montblanc, Cross, Waterman, Hertig, Parker etc are available here. Specialty pens like technical pens from Rotring for architects, fiber-tipped ones, those with brush, drawing pens for artists and short hand pens for journalists are there too. So are calligraphy pens and nibs and books.
The store also makes fountain pens under its private label called Onyx, which have their own set of discerning customers. Not to forget the range of inks that you will find here, from Pelican to Quink to Waterman. The store also has an in-house pen repairer to mend your pen troubles.
You can easily spend an hour’s time browsing through the range of fountain pens. Apart from pens, the store stocks the regular school and office stationery and is known for its range of filing systems, table accessories, diaries and specialty paper. Notebooks are there too. The store also takes bulk orders for custom-making office accessories like table tops, calendars etc.
Our verdict - If you are collector of fountain pens or a connoisseur of the grand art, then Deccan can cater to your needs. The range of pens starts from the basic Rs.10 model to whatever art demands. Deccan Pen Store is well staffed with experienced and polite personnel who can exactly understand your needs. The store is definitely not a leisure place and crowd flows in and out every minute. It’s easy to reach this place. Anybody in Abids should be able to guide you to this store. Credit cards are accepted here and it is closed on Sundays. The parking is a little tight during the daytime but quite free in the evenings.
