Located in one of the major shopping districts of Lucknow, Sahara Ganj Mall was opened with a lot of fanfare around it, being the first mall to have opened in the City of Nawabs. Apart from being inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh in 2005, Sahara Ganj Mall is also famous for being one of the largest malls in India. Spread across 525, 000 square feet, the mall houses most of the premium brands that were looking to break into the market in this prosperous city. The mall is situated in the Hazrat Ganj area of Lucknow which holds the distinction of being a Heritage Market having been in existence for over 200 years now. An amalgamation of the old and the new, Saharaganj Mall is an epitome of stylish architecture and a comfortable and relaxed environment to shop.
It is accessible by cabs and other local transportation making best use of its location, in the heart of an age-old marketplace, to provide its patrons with ease of access. It also boasts of a large underground parking lot with convenient facilities for patrons who would prefer to travel in their personal vehicles. In the mammoth 5-storey building, the mall houses many premium to luxury stores like Reebok, Guess, Lee Cooper, Pepe and Rado as well as smaller boutiques offering a very wide range of products. It also houses superstores like Big Bazaar and Pantaloons both owned by the Future Group catering to the daily food, lifestyle and fashion needs of the Indian middle class society.
Food Court in Sahara Ganj Mall
The top floor of the mall boasts of a massive food court. In the city of the Nawabs and Kebabs, the Sahara Ganj Mall food court offers enough variety to cater to people with varying tastes in food ranging from McDonalds and KFC to the local cuisine of Lucknow offered in specialty restaurants like Tunday Kababi. The mall also boasts of popular coffee house chains like Barista for patrons to relax and unwind after a long day of shopping. The PVR Theater located inside the mall reinforces its popularity with patrons by offering a state-of-the-art comfortable movie viewing experience and a play area for children to ensure their entertainment as well.
