Im really impressed with this shop!!We always think that we will find yarn etc cheaper at the large factory outlet, but I was looking for a specific color yarn and went to Aladdins. They have great stuff and R3-R4 cheaper as well. I will go back there again!!!

Great store all the haberdashery you need and more. Staff know the products in the store and are eager to help and advise if necessary. More than worth a visit.

I do not agree, the only reason the shop is doing well is because they have the monopoly. Try walking into the shop at 4:45, they walk right past you without greeting or trying to assist, cannot wait to get rid if you. Last week I rushed from work as I needed wool, I ran into the mall at 4:45 and they had already locked the shop and were on their way out. I would rather go futher to another wool shop where they are much friendlier and a lot more helpful.
