Freshly Second Branch Opening Soon

Freshly is a subsidiary departmental store of Metro Cash & Carry. Its first launched in Lahore, at the end of 2016 in Allama Iqbal Town. The second store of Freshly was opened in Bahria Town last year in July. Not long ago, they’ve placed the opening soon banner of it second branch in Shaheen Block, Bahria Town. You can also check the complete list of all departmental stores along with contact numbers and addresses by clicking here.

 

Well, the reason of the second branch of Freshly in Bahria Town is quite obvious. Because since the very first day of its opening they’re getting a favorable response from the residents that allow them to expand it within the Town. And I think there are three major reasons behind this, firstly I’ve noticed that every other week Freshly came up with different promotions and discounts (like Metro stores). Secondly, they’ve secured a very attractive and easily accessible location at the main boulevard. And, above all, it’s convenient and hustle free car parking area and I believe it is one of the attractive key features of Freshly.

 

When To Open:

The official opening of the first branch of Freshly in Bahria Town took almost three months. And according to the authorities of Freshly, the second branch would be active by the end of March or maybe the first week April.

 

Location:

It will be active in the same building that you can see in the above picture, which is located at D-Market, Shaheen Block, commercial area, Sector B, adjacent to Hot n Spicy restaurant. Though the location of the second branch isn’t impressive the first one because this area is a little bit congested and in the nearby area we already have Green Valley and other stores.

Time Exchange— Money Changer

Like car-showrooms, there wasn’t any proper money exchange facility in Bahria Town, except the service of western union and dollar east at selective branches of banks. Well, a few days ago, a separate money exchange shop has opened in sector C by the name of Time Exchange Company-B (Pvt) Ltd. I do not know when it was opened but I’ve noticed it yesterday.

 

It isn’t famous as other money exchange like Wall Street, western union, dollar east and AA money exchanger. But, I got some information about Time Exchange Company-B (Pvt) Ltd, it has several branches in different cities and working under the rules and regulation of State bank of Pakistan. The head office of this money exchange company is operating in Multan. So, it isn’t famous name or maybe I haven’t noticed it before but this money changer is authentic.

Closing: 6:00 PM.

 

Location:

Time Exchange Company-B (Pvt) Ltd, is located at first floor, Metro Heights, Talwar chowk, sector C commercial zone.

Munir Traders

If we talk about car showrooms and car dealers in Lahore, then I guess only three to four locations are prominent, Jail Road, DHA Main Boulevard, Faisal Town and the third one is near to Akbar Chowk, which I’ve no idea about the exact road name or location. And residents of Bahria Town would’ve to travel all the way from Bahria Town to these locations to find out their ideal four wheels.

 

Well, you may also come to know few car dealers in Town, through references or personal contacts. But, there wasn’t any specific car showroom or car dealership available in Bahria Town, before Munir Traders. Actually, Munir Traders isn’t the first one, because almost 2 years ago, there was a proper car dealership office by the name of Y-N-K, located at Chambaili Block, opposite to Bahria Grand Jamya Mosque. They were only dealing with Japanese cars at that time. Unfortunately, it’s been a year it was closed permanently.

 

For the time being, Munir Traders is the only option available now. It is opened in Town approximately two weeks ago. It can be seen in above advertisement board, they’re dealing with all kinds of new and used cars. So, before going to central Lahore for the car hunting you can now have an option to check within town.

 

Location:

Munir Traders 169-A, Sector C, commercial area near to Talwar Chowk, and opposite to the head office of Al-Kabir Town.

Moreover, few departmental stores also keep a limited range of eyewear collection.

 

Well, a few days before I took the picture of the above advertisement board, but couldn’t update this shop at that time.
