Just a few years back, Islamabad was deprived of the basic excursion necessity, i.e., Malls of Islamabad. Being the capital of Pakistan, the city
should be considered at par for the introduction of such necessities; however, Lahore and Karachi won the race of having more malls before Islamabad, which might be due to better investment opportunities in both cities.
There was a time when people of Islamabad, had to travel all the way to Rawalpindi to go to Rabi Center- the only place where you could find something to buy those days.
Due to this, Islamabad used to be the busy city where it was difficult to see people going out for shopping since there were no more than one or two primary shopping markets.
Later, some brands opened their outlet in the hub of Islamabad, but again there was no place where people could find each and everything at one center instead of wandering here and there separately for different things.
It is said that shopping is the best hobby one can opt for and it is one thing that makes women happy. Tough I don’t agree to it as now men are more inclined towards shopping if provided it proper place.
