In Bahria Town, optical shops are one of those lines of work that are limited in numbers. You can hardly find four to six options in Town, and prominent ones are Punjab Optics and Opto Optics. Punjab Optics have more than 5 branches in Lahore and one of its branches is located at main canal road near to the Yasir Broast and Timmy’s. And Opto Optics is active in D Market, Shaheen block. 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. Because the person out there told me that the date of its opening in above picture isn’t confirmed yet. So two days back they’ve changed the date and now it will open on Sunday, 25th February. 222 Optics Zone and Eye clinic will sell different kinds of sunglasses, glasses frames and lenses. Along with that, you can also get the facility of an ophthalmologist.
222 Optics Zone and Eye clinic is located at the main canal road adjacent to Lotus Furnitures and Domino’s pizza.
Opening time: 9:00 AM.
Closing time: 11:00 PM.
Few days back I’ve updated about the ‘Quality Fruit & Vegetable Shop, but right after two weeks of its opening the shop was closed. At that time they were only selling fruits and vegetables. Recently, they changed its name by Things Mart and it will offer daily usage things along with fruits and vegetables. It’s the fourth one that has appeared over the period of one month after Abeeha Valley, Galaxy Mart, and B.S mart. This shop will be active in a day or two with the facility of free home delivery.
Now, there are more than 40 proper departmental stores and traditional shops are operational at different locations, you can check and get all the contact details of these stores through telephone directory. Well, I believe that we already have ample amount of departmental stores to do grocery shopping but on the other hand, this kind of shops are still needed at some locations for the surrounding areas.
Things Mart is located at CC block, main road, commercial area Sector D. Adjacent to Ahemad Mart and few steps away from Mcdonald’s.
