Abbas's Department Store

Established in 1979 back in Change Alley, Ariel Plaza, we have grown and changed with the times. We are now at a new location in Chinatown with a different space and new look. However, our key philosophy remains- we tailor-make the merchandise to suit your needs because the client comes first.
