Vishal Mega Mart

In the B-Block Market Complex of Ranjit Avenue, the store is located on the right near Berco's Lounge & Bar and before you reach MK Hotel. This is in the second center on the left side of the road.

The official website is located here.

About the Store: 

Similar to a Family Dollar or Dollar General in the US, Vishal Mega Mart is a popular chain store throughout India. They sell groceries, family clothing, housewares and more. There are a few imported items available but most are traditional Indian goods. Most of the prices are low but you must be careful to check expiry dates and the seams in western clothing.

In the women's clothing department there is an extensive selection of inexpensive sari's and salwar kameez fabric sets. The children's department has a limited selection of Indian wear and western styles, toys, games, shoes and baby care items. The men's section is predominantly western wear. The basement floor, or -1, features rugs, chairs, linens and other home goods.

All total there are 5 floors of shopping with the entryway leading you in to the groceries. There is an elevator to the back of the store for those of you who use a trolley/buggy/shopping cart or stairs on either side of the store if you prefer the exercise.

A feature you won't find in most stores in Amritsar, there is an Alcohol enclosure offering a selection of vodka, gin, triple sec, rum and other whiskeys. The room is encased in glass and immediately in front of the store entrance.

Like most stores in Amritsar you must leave large bags and helmets with the baggage checker. Your bags will also be searched on the way out of the door. 

The store is open 7 days a week 10 AM to 10 PM.
