A sign at the cash counter at EBCO, the supermarket at The Forum. I just think that’s a bit too..overconfident?

    definitely overconfident. maybe they could change it to “where the burgers shop” (no offence) :p

    i think the place where karachi really shops would be imtiaz!

    I agree with Hafsa on Imtiaz Store (laughing at Saba and Huma :P). Back in my school days when Defence Phase 5 beyond 13th street was still under construction, I remember three aunties would boast shopping at “Aghas”, even if meant travelling all the way from Gulshan and Civic Centre. People just obsess with doing what the obsessed do. Obsessive Compulsivev Disorder of sorts, me thinks…

    Imtiaz might be getting too overcrowded, especially with no system at the checkout counters. Its a survival of the fittest there. I like Naheed just cuz they have proper checkout counters. Have heard about Bin Dawood and Carrefour coming to Karachi. True??

    Hi all, i used to live in karachi but now settled down in Canada.Gosh i miss the shopping and food .I am just wondering if any of the shops in karachi or other metro cities have online shopping option?.if not , i hope they will start something so we can order clothing etc.I have checked out some online shopping sites (pakistani based ) but their prices do not make sense , if i buy 6 dresses from them i can easily spend the same amount of money by travelling to karachi itself.By the way good work.

    Dee: Its the samething other way around. I wanted to order a racquet from US, and they told me that they’ll charge $100+ shipping for a $150 racquet. Plus i’ll have to go thru the hassle of getting it cleared by customs. It’d be cheaper to go to dubai and buy it from there i guess.
