The Ravians Academy

There was a time around 3 to 4 years back when a few academies were set up in Bahria Town. But didn’t get much recognition and failed to continue except Kips and Unique academy. Which are still the most preferred institutes by students in Town. Maybe at that time, the population was less and the demand was also limited. However, in recent years, the number of these private academies has flown high significantly in each sector of Bahria Town. There are now plenty of options that are available for the students.

 

Now, every other month a new institute has popped up in Bahria Town and I’ve been sharing the news whenever I got to know about them. Last month, I penned down the details of Phoenix Academy. You can check the details of these academies by clicking here. Here is one more institute that has opened recently.

Recent Closings

Shutting down of any type of business in Bahria Town isn’t a new thing for us. Indeed and sadly, winding up a commercial activity throughout in Bahria Town has become a ritual and clearly, it wouldn’t be stopped in near future. Hundreds of venus had already closed their doors in Town, re-located or still struggling to secure their market. I think there is not a single angle to discuss why so many names are striving or even big names couldn’t make it through. And, this topic needs to be researched thoroughly and I will write on it in details soon anytime.

 

However, here on this blog, we’re keeping a regular tally of which businesses are opened and which are closed. You can take a look at all previous posts to get the idea of opening and closing ratio in Town. Well, in recent days, I’ve become acquainted with more businesses which are now offline permanently. Here are the details:

 

Shavihut Restaurant:

Shavi Hut had opened their second branch in Bahria Town almost a year ago. The first branch is still operational somewhere in Izmir Town. Bahria Town’s branch has wiped out last month. Shavihut restaurant was located at main road AA Block, Sector D, near to Surahi Chowk and next to Pizza 2 Go restaurant. 

 

Cafe Rockstar: 

I remember that they did not even advertise much at the time of its opening. Only a few signboards around Metro Gulf Centre. So, it’s obvious they couldn’t manage to reach out to the residents properly and eventually ended up shutting down. Rockstar was opened at the start of July this year. It was located at Metro Gulf Centre, Tulip Ext Block, Sector C, near to Bahria Golf & Country Club. 

 

Am-Pm Salon: 

I must say, they had put a lot of effort and investment in their shop. It was one of the best barber shops in Bahria Town with an impressive unique interior. But unfortunately, this shop was closed a month ago. They opened it last year in November and located at the main boulevard near to Jamin Java Cafe. 

 

WU Mart:

Though there are plenty of departmental stores that are operational in Bahria Town and normally managed to survive. But WU mart has closed its door after a few months of opening. It was located at the main boulevard, Sector C, near to the Green Pharmacy and Agha Khan laboratory. 

 

Milk House & King Tobacco:

Milk House and King Tobacco were located at CC Block, Sector D. Both are closed now and also opened at the same month of April. 

New Shoe Outlets

Anyone who is a shoe-addict will agree that there are very limited options of shoe brands and lacking behind in Bahria Town’s market. I think especially for men, you can’t be dependent on just two to three names. If you will visit the market, zyou will find out that only Datchi and Borjan Shoes are dominating and somehow you can also consider Bata in the list of shoe brands. Castilo and Urban Sole were there for us, but its been a long time both the names departed from Town. Apart from the above-mentioned names, you may get footwears at a few clothing brands. Anyway, there is now going to the addition of two footwear shops in Bahria Town. Though these names aren’t famous ones. But yes, you will have more options to shop!

 

Shoe n Shoe:

Actually, Shoe n Shoe isn’t a new name in Town. It first opened at the main boulevard near Talwar Chowk under the name of Mega Shoes and operational for more than two years. They closed this store a couple of days ago. 

 

Well, yesterday, I’ve spotted it again at a new location and saw the front board with the same name and logo as the previous outlet. They’re now stocking up and all set to open this outlet. Maybe in a day or two, the store will officially open. Shoe n Shoe will be a roof for all renowned brands. You can check the products on their website and place your order there too. Here are the contact details and address of Shoe n Shoe:

 

Location:

Shoe n Shoe is now located at the main boulevard, near Clock Chowk and Bahria Grand Jamya Mosque.

Shoe Arena Opening Soon:

Shoe Arena just placed the opening soon banner and finishing the store’s renovation work. It will take around 15 to 20 days to open. I do not have much information right now. But I can guess by its name that this footwear store will also sell the products of famous brands. You will hear from us more after the opening of Shoe Arena. 

 

Location:

Shoe Arena would be active on the main boulevard, Sector C. Next to J.S bank and below Bin Bakar Electronics. 

Waseela Pharamcy

Saw these road-streamers of newly opened pharmacy called Waseela already? Those boards have been placed all over the Bahria Town. This pharmacy is the subsidiary brand of Link Internationals famously known for currency exchangers. 

 

Waseela Pharmacy has started operating in Bahria Town last week. They have all kinds of local and imported medicines and according to them, their rates are cheaper than others. So, on your next purchase do visit Waseela Pharmacy and check out their prices. Secondly, the numbers which are mentioned on the advertisement boards won’t help you to reach out directly to the pharmacy. The numbers are of Link International and they don’t even know the exact number of their own pharmacy. Well, I will visit them to know the actual number and will update the number in the telephone directory. 

 

Location:

Waseela Pharmacy is open at Green Valley store at Safari Villas.
