Ten-Second Takeaway

Shopaholics, take note! The swanky, new Orion East promises a complete retail therapy experience. Plus, a food court filled with fast-food delights and an upcoming multiplex where you catch the latest blockbuster.

Mall Hop

A short drive from ITC factory in Cooke Town, the Orion East Mall is an exciting, new addition to the shopping scene in this part of town. Spread across five floors, the giant structure is looking to attract shoppers from nearby localities like Banaswadi, Kammanahalli, Frazer Town, HRBR Layout and everything in between. And it sure has grabbed eyeballs since the time it opened a few weeks ago.

High-street brands like Jack & Jones, Vero Moda, Hidesign, Pepe Jeans, Arrow, and Levi’s have already set up shop. So have Sunglass Hut, Celio, and an Apple iCentre. If you are looking for something sporty, then head to the Adidas, Puma, and Skechers showrooms and fill your carts. On the third floor, brands like W, Mothercare and Global Desi vie for your attention. And, of course, every mall worth your credit card needs to have The Body Shop, so there’s that. The mall is also pegging the sprawling Shoppers Stop as one of its main attraction.

Food Hunt

Occupying the fourth floor is the food court that’s been called Saucepan. You can park yourself on one of the bright coloured chairs and order up chow from eateries like McDonald’s, Wow Momos, Beijing Bites, Waffle Stories and The Baking Company.

Coming Soon

There’s plenty more in store for shoppers dropping by Orion East. Westside and Soch are upcoming attractions. But all eyes are set on the Cinepolis that’s gearing up for a launch soon. While there is no official word on when it will become operational, a little birdie tells us that it may take a month or so for the multiplex to open its ticket windows to moviegoers.
