Housed in an unassuming 20th-century building, a few steps away from the Tbilisi National Botanical Gardens stands Buyers, an upscale department store. It offers the latest styles in footwear, accessories, men’s and women’s fashion, and home décor.
Buyers is located on 11 Geronti Kikodze Street, situated in a revitalizing neighborhood of the Old Tbilisi district. Its façade is easy to pass by, but upon closer inspection reveals an inviting storefront.
The department store is a hidden gem for Tbilisi’s in-crowd and tourists alike; a one-stop-shopping mecca, showcasing Georgian designers like George Keburia and Tatuna Nikolaishvili but also stocking skin-care cult favorites like Dr. Jart and Mario Badescu.
With a clean, organized display, Buyers caters to the cool, the effortless, and the socially-conscious crowd, even stocking bracelets by the Dze Georgian Project, with proceeds supporting residents of the nearby Dzegvi Shelter.
The majority of Buyers’ offerings lean more towards trendy than traditional: think structured silhouettes, soft neutrals, and bold graphic patterns that elevate everyday basics, as well as the latest streetwear styles that mimic Vetements’ aesthetic. The clothing is colorful, but muted, lending its wearers a sophisticated vibe.
In addition, shoppers can find a mix of sleek or kitschy homeware goods for a perfectly curated living space.
Prices are decent, with Buyers’ brand basics starting around $50 and up, while designer pieces start around $200. For online shoppers, buyers.ge offers a small selection of what’s available in-store.
