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.

New Department of Traffic Control

Bahria Town has a team of security persons to whom they put at any place even at traffic controlling.

I’ve noticed a difference for couple of days that they have new department of traffic control. New persons standing at signals and squares. They are wearing new uniforms/jackets.

Did Bahria Town have divided already hired persons in different groups or hired some new one? Whatever the answer is, it’s a positive step. If Bahria Town have created a new department in their office then it will develop itself sooner or later.
