Attention please…

Unless you are a masochist, do not go to Naheed Superstore on a weekend, specially if you are planning to get less than 20 items. It’s not worth the trouble.

‘Nuff said.

    Think the best time to shop at Naheed’s is just half an hour before closing… even if you get late, you can always go to D-Mart next door…

    D-Mart sucks , they don’t have the variety which Naheed offers ( atleast in diapers for my youngest ) beside the key to get out early in Naheed is
    to pick some stuff stand in line and ask your friend / wife / kid to grab other things to fill the cart

    go to the second floor , there line is usually low

    go to the third floor their the line is practically non existant ( some times the register is not working )

    befriend some staff at Naheed they will get you through all the ordeal ( they deserve Rs. 50 – 100 for this service )

    last night after peacefully getting catfood and Coffee from D-Mart I decided to get an XD memory card from Naheed, when I reached the entrance it reminded me of KEEF 2006, so I decided to come back some other time :P. I also noticed that the Price of a 200 Gram Maxwell jar is 385 at D-mart while I had been paying 400 at Naheed, also the cat food is cheaper at D-mart..

    My suggestion: Visit D-mart and if you cant find something there only then go to Naheed.

    Just wait for couple of months and you will really enjoy the retail experience in Karachi.

    We are trying hard to give you a real retail treat!

    Oh and one more thing.. never go to an Imtiaz Shop from the 1st to the 5th of a month… same reason

  8. mansoor (unregistered) on September 18th, 2006 @ 2:59 pm

    haseeb: good call! but imtiaz is crazy almost all year around! its like they’re almost giving away stuff :S

    bamboo: carrefoure? :D

    Metro’s coming up soon. That should give Karachiites a choice in shopping.

    had a really bad experience with parking at naheed’s a couple of weeks back so i decided to go there early sunday mornin (early being 12 noon by my standards). It wasnt THAT bad…..i managed to snatch stuff from the shelves and decently stack up my trolley!! and i deserve an award for that! :D

    I guess Makro Habib, Carrefour etc are going to suck serious profit out of D-Mart & other (slightly) overcharging retail giants.

    i’m a walmart fan :D

  15. Saadia (unregistered) on September 19th, 2006 @ 7:54 am

    This idea really intrigues me as I’ve never seen something like a “walmart” in Pakistan. From the sound of it, Karachiites are loving it.

  16. Saadia (unregistered) on September 19th, 2006 @ 8:05 am

    everybody loves a superstore! (waisay I didn’t know that Karachiites were THIS fond of it)

    Am I the only one left in this poor city who still goes Galee k nukar ke rashan shop and Nagori milk shop? :/

  18. zeeshan (unregistered) on September 19th, 2006 @ 11:37 pm

    I love Naheed SuperStore but stay far away from it specially on Sunday. I did hear that carrefoure is also heading here! Any news on that front?
