Bangalore Central in Bangalore.
The latest addition to the exciting world of shopping is the Bangalore Central Mall. In the place where once stood the sprawling Victoria hotel with its laidback attitude and old world charm, now stands Bangalore’s newest shopping mall - Bangalore Central - opposite Mayo Hall, in the heart of the City.
Constructed with an investment of over Rs 30 crore and occupying over 120,000 sq feet to house more than 300 brands across various categories, Bangalore Central, is all set to redefine shopping.
A unique feature is that Bangalore Central is India’s first 'seamless mall’ which is aimed at making shopping easier. There are counters for every brand, but no doors or separators for stores. It’s like one huge store within the ambience of a mall. A cross between Macy’s and Target, Bangalore Central also has a floor where you can access your groceries, canned food and imported fruits. It too has a bookstore and several floors of clothes for everyone in the family.
The company managing the mall promises international standards in ambience and services and is equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure, offering the customer a variety of choices with all brands, regional and international under one roof. The six-storeyed mall boasts of apparel, fashion accessories, supermarket including Food Bazaar, liquor store, electronics, consumer durables, cosmetics, books and music on each floor, adding to the convenience of shopping.
Eateries occupy an important place in any shopping centre. Bangalore Central has its own Food Court with restaurants, cafes and eat-outs, occupied by the likes of Cookie Man, MTR, Baskin Robins, 3 Amigos, Gangotri and Coffee Day Cafe.
And the mall also boasts of a unique and first-of-its-kind in-house radio called “Radio Central”, which will have an RJ anchoring events, playing music and arranging surprises for customers. Central will also offer services like travel, cinema ticket booking, payment of bills and foreign exchange. Investment and insurance services are also on offer.
On the anvil are a wedding registry and “Central Square”, a specially dedicated space to host events, displays, art exhibitions and even product launches.
The mall has ample parking space with two floors dedicated for parking vehicles and entry from MG Road and Magarath Road. Bangalore Central is the first of the seamless chain malls which Pantaloons intends to start in other cities as well. Hyderabad and Pune will be the next cities to have similar malls later this year.
