For this upcoming school year, Bali Fashion on Middle Road in Gualo Rai is having a back-to-school promo from July 26 to Aug. 31, giving parents bigger chances at getting more bang for their bucks.

Bali Fashion president Shabbir F. Shakir said the store usually has a back-to-school promotion yearly but this year’s promo is extra special. “We are starting early and ending on the last day of August so we can give community members a chance to get their local stimulus checks so they have means to get their children school uniforms and apparels,” he said.

“We already have a lot of new items that came in, like school uniforms, such as khaki pants and shorts that are popular with Mt. Carmel School students. We also have casual wear for students who do not wear uniforms in school,” he said.

He said most of their items come from the United States and cater to every member of the family, with sizes for children, teenagers, and adults.

“For shorts and slacks, we carry big sizes—5X, 6X and all the way to size 58. Big sizes are hard to find on Saipan so when people come in and find the right size for them, they are happy,” he added.

For over 25 years, Bali Fashion has been a popular destination for clothes, apparel, bags, shoes, swimwear etc., Name it and they probably have it in quantity, at affordable prices.

Everyday is discount day at Bali Fashion where they offer 10% to 25% discount on several items. One of the store’s most popular promo is called “Mix and Match,” which Shakir said many local residents love.

“‘Mix and Match’ is when you combine items from different choices as long as they are of the same discount price. For example, our three items for $25 promo that is composed of T-shirts, customers can pick out one or two items and replace them with another item, say, a pair of shorts or pants from another rack as long as they are of the same price or promo of three items for $25. This way, a customer can walk out with a complete wardrobe and only spent $25. That is a very good deal and people appreciate it,” he said.

Since Bali Fashion has been running for over 25 years now, customers have become friends, Shakir said. “It is great to see the third generation of shoppers come to the store. They remember me and I remember them as children when their parents would bring them to the shop.”

“I am grateful for the community’s support and because of their support we are surviving.. The store was named ‘Bali’ as it is a local word for guaranteed and, as the name suggests, customers are always guaranteed to get quality items at good prices,” he added.

Bali Fashion is open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 8pm. For more information, call (670) 233-1190 or (670) 287-8250. You can also check their Facebook page: Bali Fashion Saipan.
