Kayseria is open now !!!

dav“Kayseria”… A female clothing brand, has now opened its branch in Bahria Town. Today was the 3rd day of the opening.

There are now about 30 branches of Kayseria in Lahore, including this one.

Kayseria has not offered any discount till now. Although they have a very descent collection of shirt pieces, two piece and three piece suits. Their starting variety mostly consists of light colours and all of them are from winter collection. I didn’t find much variety of fancy stuff.

According to them, a new range of suits, including ones with chiffon duppatas, and of khaddar material will arrive within next week, probably till Monday.

A constant stream of women has been found at their launch. Hopefully, this branch will also get good response like others, inshallah.

Ashiana Pet Shop

Like foreign countries, the trend regarding pets has been changed a lot in Pakistan in last few years. People are getting more inclined to keep pets as a hobby.

In Lahore, there are many pet shops including Tollentol market, birds planet etc having varieties in it.

As compared to city areas, residential societies do not have such type of shops. People do not want to go to such rushy and far places plus they want such shops nearer to their societies so they can have their pets cared, having full know how of their needs and to get their pet nice food supplies.

Keeping all above things as a reference, a new pet shop has been opened in Bahria Town, Lahore with the name of “Ashiana” in D-Plaza (D1 Plaza, Shaheen Block). They have variety in birds, also have a small range of rabbits and cats due to space issue but they assures to arrange any pet on customer’s demand. They also deals in pets accessories and their food supplies.

Also note that this is Ashiana’s third shop here. They already have two furniture shops, one at Talwar Chowk and the other at PSO (in Bahria Town).

Now, we can only wish “ASHIANA” a good luck to achieve a good name in Bahria Town (Inshallah).

Update: Their contact numbers are:

Best Outing In Lahore

Whenever a Lahori (one who lives in Lahore) thinks of outing, he has one thing in mind ‘where to go to eat’. On some occasions like Eid, people were looking for something more then eating.

When you look around the Lahore city, you’ll get many historical landmarks where one can go. Those who live here has got bore with that and want something new, something modern.

I’m amazed to see that people from whole city come to Bahria Town Lahore to visit. They came here to visit the Grand Jamia Masjid and Eiffel Tower.

On Eid days our Bahria Town Lahore is full with people wandering around Grand Jamia Masjid and Eiffel Tower. Entrance of Bahria Town get choked due to load of traffic. Good thing is that, now we have more places in Lahore to hangout.

Jinnah Block Masjid Is Active

Masjid in Jinnah block is now active. It has been couple of weeks to start proper nmaz in it. Juma prayer is not said in this masjid, that is in Grand masjid.

There are less people to pray in this masjid at the moment because there isn’t any possession in Jinnah block yet. This masjid is in between Jinnah block and Rafi block, so many people known this masjid with the name of Rafi block Masjid.

This active masjid is also a positive sign in giving the possession of Jinnah block. It seems that possession is very near.

Well this masjid is very beautiful. It has fountains and large parking area. Though it is designed as per Qurtaba masjid in Safari Villas, Bahria Town Lahore. No pillars, round in shape. Have nice calligraphy on ceiling. It also has a room for Islamic classes which they might start in near future.

Mufti Shakeel is Imam of the masjid. He is the same Moulana who was firstly Imam of Ali block masjid and then CC block masjid.

Let us pray there so that masjid will also give our witness in hereafter.

TGM A New Super Store

TGM-super-store

We’ve seen the billboard, we’ve seen the road hoardings. TGM which stands for ‘The Great Mall’ is opened.

Logo is very elegant, my elder brother comments that it seems like a logo of some high end brand like ‘Marks & Spencer’ etc. But it’s not an apparel brand. It’s a Super Store. Yes, you heard me right, it’s a super store, which we don’t have much in Bahria Town at the moment.

If we look at the Super Store list in Bahria Town then we have only one option which is ‘Green Valley’ in Safari Villas. We can also count on ‘Easy Mart’ at ‘Jasmine Mall’ but it’s small in size.

When it comes to monthly grocery, people are very curious to find a good super store. Accessibility is not the only factor in this case. Many people don’t like to shop through the Green Valley and they go outside Bahria Town for their monthly grocery. Well now we have another option ‘The Great Mall’. Let me give you a brief detail about it.

Location:

208-B, Sector C commercial zone, Bahria Town Lahore.

It is on 8 Marla commercial (2 side open) right in front of parking of Country Club.

Outer Look:

They have designed their billboards and logo very well. I’m impressed. Secondly the building is outstanding. We don’t have any single building in whole Bahria Town which has the Mezzanine floor. This is the first one and done fantastically.

Segments:

stationary-tgm-bahria-town-lahore

Right now ‘The Great Mall’ is working on following segments.

  1. Grocery (whole in detail)
  2. Cosmetics
  3. Jewelry (artificial)
  4. Lingerie
  5. Toys

In Grocery section, they are improving day by day. I believe every day they ad a new product and trying to increase the whole variety of product lines.

Toys section has a maximum variety we can have in Bahria Town. Prices are very low as compare to other stores.

Shopping Is Pleasure:

One thing which I need while shopping a monthly grocery is Shopping Experience. This is what they have focused on their ‘tag line’; ‘Shopping Is Pleasure’. Let’s see how they manage to maintain their tag line.

Discount Offer:

TGM is offering up to 20% discount on most of their products. This is a fantastic chance to do shopping with such a big discount. Prices are already normal (according to market). Moreover we’ve a discount.

Give it a visit and comment here about your experience.

Rumors Were Wrong

There were many rumors about the building constructed in front of Bilawal House that it would be Hyperstar (super market). Well it’s proven wrong because Bahria Town management has placed a billboard saying Green Valley (Bahria Town’s super market chain) coming soon.

I believe they are making this building on ‘The Mall of Lahore’ style, where they have brands in the building plus a specified area for Green Valley super store.

Completion work is in progress, let’s see when they start.

Rumors About Hyperstar

Hyperstar is the biggest shopping mall of Lahore. It is also present in other cities of Pakistan like in Karachi as well.

Hyperstar in Lahore start it’s first mall in Fortress Stadium. Further they plan to open more in Lahore. They have planned one in Emporium Shopping Mall (under construction) near to Expo Center, Wapda Town Lahore.

Now what I’m hearing from very positive resource that Hyperstar is coming to Bahria Town Lahore.

Location:

In Sector E, near to Bilawal House. Opposite of Bahria Homes. There is a constructed building with finishing works taking place right now. In Map this place is mentioned as ‘Mart International Chain’

Rumors are that this place will be going to become Hyperstar mart very soon. Let’s see when official news about this come out.
