Gladiator Fashion Ahmedabad
HITLER replaced by GLADIATOR –
and no, we are not talking about Adolf or crocodiles. Not even about World War 2 or Zoo. Or Germans. Or Jews. Irrelevant to its name, though it served the purpose (hail!), Hitler is a fashion store. Sorry, “Gladiator” is a fashion store. It’s one thing to have a good collection, yet another to know that customers to know about it. And man, what a way to let customers know that you exist!
Simplified : Gladiator is name of a store which was earlier named as Hitler. The name had to be changed because, well, AMC & other government bodies were not letting it register under the name of great Hitler! The store was not getting basic amenities like credit card machine, sales tax no, telephone connection, etc. Beat that.
The store became famous (or infamous) Sherawat-style within a month from its inception – thanks to its name & the “swastika” sign in logo. So much that it was covered by IBN, The Hindu, TOI etc. Ignorant to the history of Hitler, Rajesh (owner) had named it “Hitler” based on a nick-name given to his friend’s grandfather :)
All problems / controversies aside, Hitler is a store worth visiting for good-priced-good-looking-right-fitting clothes. The store has some really good cool in-fashion collection, specially in the male T Shirt segment. Priced with just the right tag (around Rs. 500/-), the Espana T-shirts are currently sold only at Hitler in Ahmedabad.
