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.

Book Fair In Bahria Town Lahore

There are two locations of this book fair for Bahria Town residencies.

  1. In parking of zoo of Safari Villas. (for two weeks)
  2. Above Zakir Tikka, opposite to house of Mr. Malik Riaz. (for three months)

First location has a limited place and limited books. Whereas second place has more capacity of books.

Discount Offer:

They are offering 20% discount on written price of book.

Green Valley has a book shop which sells the book at it’s actual price. So according to that it’s a good discount.

But if we look it as a book fair, then I believe, there should be more discount on books prices.

Easy Mart A New Departmental Store

A new small size departmental store is opened with the name of Easy Mart in Jasmine Mall, Sector C commercial zone, Bahria Town Lahore. Al-Bake is a famous general store in Bahria Town which is now shifted in Easy Mart.

I’ve given them a visit but didn’t find any enormous difference as compare to Al-Bake. Area is bigger but it seems that they have same stock as they have in Al-Bake. But this is the current situation of Easy Mart and they are putting more stock in the store.

Special Offer:

Bread and Beyond is giving 20% off in Easy Mart but I didn’t get it that for how long. If you came to Bahria Town Lahore then you have noticed the road hoardings with 20% discount.

Let’s see how this mart turn out to be… I’ll update about it later as well.

Meezan Bank Opening Soon

Meezan Bank Ltd. is a pioneer and only complete Islamic bank in Pakistan. Meezan Bank is not only attracting clients because of Islamic perspective but providing extra ordinary services as well.

I’ve a account in Meezan Bank and I know how comfortable it is. They give you a true meaning of online banking whereas other banks limit you at that point. Beside my satisfaction, Meezan Bank Ltd. is the fastest growing bank in Pakistan.

Recently Meezan Bank started their branch at Shahkam chowk. But I’ve told the Meezan Bank employees that Bahria Town is not such a place that people will go out of the society to open an account over there. If you need to attract the clients of Bahria Town Lahore then you need to come inside the society.

Now Meezan Bank Ltd. is starting a branch inside Bahria Town Lahore. They have rented out the place and preparing themselves to become operational.

Location:

It is on main boulevard B-side Sector C commercial zone, opposite of Grand Jamia Masjid Bahria Town Lahore.

Shahkam chowk branch intake is that Bahria Town branch will become operational in next two months.
