While I am Karachiite through and through, occasionally I find myself in Lahore. A much-improved city from what it was in the early 2010’s, Lahore has slowly and surely become one of the most popping cities in the country with an amazing fine dining scene and some great high-quality shopping. However, with all the glitz and glamour, you may find yourself running low on cash after you’re done sampling some of the best eateries in the city.
Just in case you find that happening, here are some great budget-friendly grocery and convenience stores which you can check out to soothe the burden on your budget.
Metro Cash and Carry
Metro Cash and Carry has four outlets spread across the city and can be found near many bustling locations of Lahore. We have Metro Ravi Road, Metro Airport Road, Metro Model Town, and Metro Thokar Niaz Baig. It is a one-stop store. You can get almost every necessity in a single spot. Keeping in mind the cost of fuel and the sustainability factor associated with one-stop grocery shopping, it is a great option!
All the goods are properly displayed on spacious aisles so that you can enjoy your shopping experience without feeling overcrowded or overwhelmed. The freezer section is large enough that you can find all the fresh goods from there like fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, frozen food, etc. From food items to clothes and from household equipment to lifestyle products, you can get everything that you need.
CarreFour is another great spot for a one-stop shopping spree. Carrefour offers amazing discounts to customers on all items. By buying in bulk, it takes care of the customers too with discounts, which makes it one of the budget-friendly superstores in Lahore.
It has its own live bakery from where you get organic and fresh food.
Imtiaz is gaining popularity in Lahore after starting out as a Karachi-based enterprise.
Imtiaz has a lot of branches in Lahore. The products are available in a wide range and at budget-friendly rates. All the products are fresh and up to date. The staff is super friendly and cooperative. The prices are reasonable as compared to other retail shops.
Enormously popular amongst Lahoris, Al-Fatah offers amazing deals to customers on all items. Every month there are attractive discount offers on various items. The discounting option makes hopping wallet-friendly. So, customers who cannot buy some goods at their original price could pay less for them. You get electronic items, crockery, home appliances, food, clothes, shoes and much more.
Rahim Store is one of the oldest superstores in Lahore. It started in 1979 and is continued to provide the best shopping experience to its customers. Their idea of selling more for less makes it the favorite shopping store for many. People can buy a lot more from the Rahim store on the same budget than from any other place.
There is a big stock of a wide variety of groceries here. There are different departments according to categories so that shopping is easier for the customers.
