City Mall is one of the largest malls in Raipur and was established in 2007. It is a place where you get anything you want under the sun. I went to have a look at the mall during our stay at Raipur and we went there in the evening at about 3.00 pm. the mall was indeed very large with 4 floors and the entrance was very impressive. It was full of shoppers and we too joined in the excitement of shopping. On the ground floor there were shops of many branded items like Globus, Woodland, Sunglass Hut, Calvadoss, Adidas, John Player, Reid & TaylorPrme Watch, Ayesha and many more. We just did some window shopping there and moved on to the first floor.
On the first floor also there were many shops of Peter England, Lotus, Liberty, Lee, Fab India, Provogue, Mafti, Club Mahindra, Archies etc. I bought a Peter England shirt for my husband and from the Lee I bought two jeans and shirts for my kids. The Archie’s was another place that my kids loved to go. Here they bought some cards and some key chains and toys.
The second floor had Oxford Book Store, Promart, Beebay Kids, Bukhari India, Kalasangam etc. We had a round of the second floor and then went to the third floor. Here we saw Himalaya Opticals, Thai spa, Habibs, Toon shop and+ Saraswati handloom. The Sarasati Handloom had many sarees and women’s tops and I bought one saree and a top for me. The multiplex was also located in the third floor.
The food court is on the fourth floor was and various games for the entertainment of children as well as the grown up people. Being a foodie, it was the food court that interested me. A lot of variety food like Chinese, Continental and Indian were served. The dosa plaza, chaat express, Anger Dragon, Mughlai and Indiana, all looked very inviting. We had Chinese food and ice-cream.
The gaming zone was to keep the children busy and at the same time safe, while the parents were busy shopping. We had a gala time shopping at the mall and came out after 3 hours.
