Commercial Street Shops Will Stay Open Till 2AM Tonight For Last Minute Eid Shopping

Aakanksha posted on 25 June


Want to shop till you drop? Commercial Street will be open tonight, until at least 2am for you to quickly shop for Eid. Or just shop if you don’t have time during the day anyway!

Shop All Day And Night

And I mean all day and night, very literally in this case. To help you celebrate Eid that is expected to be tomorrow, most Commercial Street stores will be open until past 2am tonight. While the bigger retails department stores such as Westside, and chain shops like Metro, Vero Moda and Puma-Nike-adidas will be closed, you can count on the ethnic and Indian wear ones to be shutters up!

Fazals, Manyavar {perfect to get that stunning sherwani, boys}, Elan for those flowing gowns, lehengas and shararas, Koskhi, Shagun and Meena Bazaar too are options for similar stuff for ladies — they’re all going to be working overtime to make sure you look festive for Eid. Oh, and a few wonderful tailors will also stay open to make your last-minute blouse. Just buy material ASAP, and dash off to Ibrahim Sahib street and jump into the first tailor shop. Or the least crowded one!

Accessories And Appetisers

When you’re done shopping until the wee hours of the morning, walk towards the Islamic Boutique on Kamraj Road. Apart from some great artificial jewellery shopping from the streets, and bangles in every possible colour, you’ll be flanked by carts selling quintessential Iftar food — kheema samosa, haleem, kebabs. Oh, and Sreeraj Lassi bar to cool off with juice, kulfi or lassi!

Happy shopping, y’all and more importantly, Eid Mubarak in advance.
