Did you notice one thing that why departmental stores which were once rulers in Bahria Town, all of a sudden seems charged up and trying to dominate again? Obviously! this is all because of big players who have entered in Town including Jalal Sons, Al-Fateh, and then Rainbow Cash & Carry. For all the stores who have been running in town since the start, the competition has become challenging and remarkably difficult for them.
Well, except Easy Mart, I had never seen other stores like (Green Valley, The Great Mall, Victoria Store) who did come up with new promotions and discounts frequently. But, in the past few days, these older stores scaling back on advertisement and have started offering different promotions to attract more attention. In recent days, Easy Mart and Safari Mall had placed advertisement boards in all over Bahria Town and offered discounts. Similarly, The Great Mall, in a period of around one month had launched a discount offer for the second time. I can tell you, these promotions and discount offers will definitely continue to grow and you will see more promotions in near future.

The Great Mall has a separate department of fresh fruits and vegetables along with meat by the name of TGM TAZA. This time, TGM TAZA has another Ramadan offer for the residents. They’re now offering fresh vegetables at discounted prices:
- Tomatoes: Rs 8/-
- Onion: Rs 19/-
- Potato: Rs 14/-
These discounted prices are very low as I purchased tomatoes yesterday at Rs 30/- per kg and the price of onion was Rs 25/- per kg. So, you can get these vegetables in less than a half price as compared to the market’s rates. It’s a limited time offer and only valid for one day on 16th May.
The Great Mall is located at Tulip block, 208-B, Sector C, commercial zone in front of Bahria Golf & Country Club.

Bahria Town has several travel & tour service consultants, if you go to telephone directory and check travel & tour section there are around 10 to 12 options that are available. Vista International is one of them it was opened in Bahria Town in November last year. I’ve written on Vista International and their services here at the time of its opening. Today, I saw that after a few months of struggling it has closed and there wasn’t any activity, their office turned out to be a vacant space.
Then I was thinking maybe they planned to change its location so I called them but they didn’t pick. So, apparently Vista International is closed now and of I hear about re-locating then I will update it. Vista International was located at the tulip block, sector C, near to The Great Mall and adjacent to Ashley furniture.
Well, you still have other options to get travel & tour services to check the details go to this link.
I am always positive about the fact that Bahria Town still need more names in its market to make a complete stopping place for shopping. Currently, clothing and apparel brands lack in number, but the number of such brands are gradually increasing in Bahria Town. Few of them have already entered and many big names are still anticipated and will step in future. Well, for now there is another big name that is opening its door for the residents of Bahria Town. Yesterday, when I was enroute to Tulip block near Biryani Master, I saw the banner and got to know that ‘Chenone’ is next now.
Almost everyone is familiar with the name of Chenone in Pakistan. But those who do not have the exact idea about it, its not just an apparel brand. Chenone is a subsidiary brand of Chenab group and they are offering wide range of foot wear, Bed Linen, Kitchen Accessories, Furniture and Home textile. It first started in 1997, and it is now one of the largest chain in Pakistan with more than 50 outlets. Chenone stores are established in all most all the cities nationwide.
When to open:
If you visit any Chenone store than you will find out that mostly Chenone stores have secured spacious area. Because all of their products are available under one roof. Well, if you look at the above picture it seems like that this whole building is for Chenone. But they will only get 2 or 3 floors from this whole building. For the time being only grey structure has completed, still all the renovation, interior and exterior work is yet to be completed. The main point is when will it open, they said that they’re trying to open it by the end of November and there is no exact date have been announced yet. But according to the current situation I believe it will take one more month to finally open its door in Bahria Town. I will definitely update here about the final date of its opening whenever I get to know about it.
Generally, most of the Chenone stores are not located within the premises of any Mall, and you won’t find it with other brands. They always go for a separate place for their stores, so it is obvious that they aren’t going to open it in Jasmine Mall. It is located at Tulip Block, sector C commercial Zone, near to Briyani Master and also adjacent to Bin Bakar Electronics. Few minutes drive away from Bahria Golf & Country Club and opposite to Grand Jamya Mosque.
