The mall culture came to Karachi in the 90’s well after it was the rage in the West for decades, and with it, the concept of shopping was utterly revolutionized in Pakistan. Shopping no longer meant battling the crowds in flea markets or elbowing yourself in for a bargain in narrow alleyways. On the contrary, it became a relaxing experience, in a posh air-conditioned ambiance, with rows of shining glass and chrome windows displaying an array of appealing brands and interacting with educated sales people.
A mall became a place to hang out with friends or shop with that special someone. It became a place where you grabbed a bite of the latest fast food offering or a sundae to beat the heat while you shared a laugh.
Today, every major vicinity in the metropolis of Karachi boasts of an elite mall, a magnet for the young and old. May it be Eid or a wedding or just an urge to treat yourself to something new, there is always a brand that appeals to your unique taste at a shopping mall.
Every mall boasts of its own USP:
With every new mall comes a plethora of added attractions– may they be in the form of bigger and better brand outlets or sprawling hyper marts; bustling, multi-cuisine offering food courts or energizing adult recreation and play areas.
North Walk in North Nazimabad, a strip mall, the first of its kind in the city, over-looking Shahrah e Sher Shah Suri, is yet another much needed recreation and shopping mall in one of the most densely populated areas of Karachi. Along with an impressive array of top notch designer brands, there are multiple roof top restaurants to hang out in and relish a bite.
The Untapped Potential of North Nazimabad:
Nazimabad has been acclaimed as a hub for serious buyers for years due to the bargains offered at Bhayani and Haidery Market. When malls came to the area, like the Saima Paari Mall and Dolmen Mall, Haidery, the clientele completely changed. And The North Walk promises to have that special X Factor the elite crowd in the area have been coveting, so they no longer have to go all the way to the other side of town for a posh retail experience.
With North Walk as a major contender in upping the mall culture, shopping is no longer considered a tedious chore you want to get over with. Rather you make a day of it, spending quality time with a friend, partner, or family member with memorable brands, satisfying retail therapy, and a scrumptious rooftop meal.
