Soo, our readers. Who out of you all is a ‘Human Rights Activist’?

human rights activist is a person who is against discrimination of all sorts and supports equal rights for each and every individual regardless of any kind of differences that there might be. Discrimination is when a person is treated differently because of their gender, religion, caste, color or any such factor that is irreplaceable. This differentiation is often to make the other person feel inferior or bad about themselves in comparison to others who are treated as superiors and the ‘better people’.

Discrimination on any basis is something that is absolutely wrong and against human rights. I for one am completely against discrimination whether it is gender-based, religious or any other kind.

Nobody in this world has the right to treat someone badly or as someone below them assuming that they are better. Neither does any culture support such behavior nor any religion in the world.

Imtiaz Super Market and every single person associated with it is against discrimination. From the head office to all the branches throughout the country, all policies and regulations are such that support equal treatment of everyone and considers everyone as nothing but a human who can benefit from us and vice versa.

This zero toleration for discrimination can be seen in multiple areas of retail. For starters, there is no kind of gender-based or religious quota for hiring employees in the head office or the branches. If the candidate’s profile is good and they succeed in proving themselves as an efficient resource for the retail, then there is nothing that will come in the way of their employment. Men, women, Muslims, Christians, Hindus… everyone is employed based on their merit and skills.

They all get an equal chance in training, celebrations, promotions without any kind of personal bias and employee records are reviewed frequently to ensure this.

Furthermore, if you visit any of our branches, every customer is treated politely, nicely and gently regardless of their gender or appearance. There is no special treatment for anyone beyond the fact that they are all special as customers.

It is true that today in the 21st century; we have come very far from the days where there were particular sects and religions whose followers weren’t even treated as humans, let alone equals.

Imtiaz Super Market is proud to state that since the beginning of this supermarket, it has been nothing but a constant supporter and contributor to the cause of Human Rights and it will continue to do so!

Where do you go for grocery shopping?

.

Where do you go to buy your fruits and vegetables?

.

And what about makeup and accessories?

You probably also have a separate shop for your little one’s necessities, right?

Why? I know why… it’s because there is no way you can find all of these things at one place and that too of good quality, right?

Wrong!

At Imtiaz Super Market, all the products you require are available under one roof. From your kitchen to your bedroom, guest room and toilets, everything you need to maintain all these places are available at Imtiaz Super Market. Electronics, carpets, crockery, car tools, cleaning tools, grocery, dairy products, fruit, and vegetables… literally, anything that you can think of that you would require for the setting, maintenance, and ambiance of your house, is available at Imtiaz Super Market.

With the widest assortment in all of the categories, Imtiaz Super Market ensures that you won’t have to go anywhere else for anything! There is so much variety even in the health and beauty section with so many shampoos, fragrances, makeup and much more to choose from that you will get confused about what to choose and what to leave behind. And the best part about all this is that it’s not even of average quality. The most premium quality products are made available at Imtiaz Super Market at prices extremely pocket-friendly.

Furthermore, what makes this retail even more different is the DESIPAN of it. Although we have come a long, long way since Imtiaz was only one kiryana and not whole merchandise, yet even today we welcome our customers with just as much desi-pan as we used to. When you walk into any of the

Imtiaz Super Market branches, you will see cartons and packages literally just sitting there unlike in any other supermarket and the reason behind this is nothing but to maintain the DESI touch of Imtiaz. You can walk in, pick up a carton, put it in your trolley and walk out.  No extra packaging, no additional prices… nothing.

We are not just a retail business… we are a FAMILY bonded together by a supreme desire and aim to provide you with the ULTIMATE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE!

This year we were confused about whether to enjoy 14th august or to celebrate Eid?

The weather was amazing, it was raining and raining like for straight 48 hours, right before the meaty Eid.

Half of the people were praying for the animals here and there, and half of the people were worried about the sacrifice. The rain has caused a lot of trouble because we don’t have a proper ventilation system, and this is why we have our roads filled with water.

Few of the people made the sacrifice in the home while the roads and streets were still having water, the blood mixed with it and it felt like blood river flowing which was disgusting.

On 14th august, there were malls decorated and small events took place, but obviously because of Eid and 3rd day of Eid and all the hustle and bustle, due to rain, people preferred staying in the home.

The smelly roads, the dirtiness around and the meatiness everywhere.

The waterlines were even mixed and damaged, the water in lines we had got dirty and smelly, so we have to buy water for drinking. Oh, God last few days of Eid were amazingly different yet weird and messy.

On 14th august, we got some amazing new videos in which people showed a beautiful message. Every year we celebrate 14th august with a lot of fireworks and fire shots. This year thankfully it was with Eid so, the fire shots were limited.

This year a lot of people took initiate of cleaning Pakistan streets and making it green by planting trees. Along with this they also have recorded beautiful messages, like clean Pakistan and wrap all the flags bounties back again once you are done celebrating 14th august.

Every year a lot of us celebrate and then let it be on the street but why is that so?

The flag should always be respected and always should keep it safe and high.

Eid holidays with independence holiday, two celebrations together along with the long weekend. It was amazing, since Sunday we have off, and then we are back on Friday only one day to work those who have their Saturday’s off and those who have on, have 2 working days, the week is suddenly small. Much needed vacations, where we have enjoyed rain, family time and friends gathering.

Coming back to the office only for enjoying and celebrating Independence Day.

Friday’s are usually the smallest day of the week because we all get 2 hours of break, prayers and lunch break and if you have an event in the evening, then it becomes smaller than ever, so its one of that kind 😊

Reciting Quran, then singing national anthem following by cake cutting and hi-tea, along with some more activities is how head office and every branch of Imtiaz super market celebrate Independence Day.

For witnessing more about the event and celebration, please visit our Instagram page and Facebook page.

Let us know in the comment section about how you have celebrated your Eid and Independence Day!!

Eid is right around the corner and almost everyone’s sacrificial animals are here. However, there are still many people who just haven’t found the right one yet! In many such cases, time management is a big issue. Men of the family are usually the ones who go out to the MANDI’S to select and purchase the animals but because of busy schedules, there are a lot of men who haven’t been able to visit the MANDI.

We care about you, your schedules and your convenience and this is why we decided to save you from all those hassles and chaotic visits to the mandi. Like every year, once again we bring to you an ‘IN-STORE MANDI’!

Priced according to weight, now you can purchase your sacrificial animal from Imtiaz Super Market at Rs. 670 per kg. Affordable and convenient… what else can you need?

Kept clean and in a hygienic environment, our animals are reliable, healthy and MEATY! Eid is a pious, religious occasion and being able to afford to present your sacrifice is an honor and blessing so you obviously want the best! And for that… we have it covered!

Since they are being sold in-store, even women of the family can go visit, check out the animals and prices and either decide which one to purchase, get familiar with the market ranges or even buy right away!

Like we always say, your convenience means more than anything to us! So in whichever way we are able to make things easy for you, we do it right away!

So no more forcing yourself to the stinky MANDI’S and settling for some animal because you don’t want to visit again. Just one or multiple visits to the Imtiaz Super Market, and make whichever animal you like, yours!

So what are you waiting for?! Head over to the DHA branch of Imtiaz Super Market NOW and get your animals!

MEAT MUBARAK PAKISTAN!!

How many of you give charity? What even is a charity?

Charity is when you give money, food, clothes or any such thing to someone in need.  The purpose behind the charity is to be able to help someone in any way or magnitude possible.

There are many reasons why we should give charity.

Giving charity is a habit that if reinforced from a young age, can help in the personal and moral development of an individual. People who frequently give charity are known to be more selfless, generous, kind and empathetic than those who don’t. Once you are regular in helping and giving back to people, this trait will be observed and adapted by many individuals that surround you and are associated with you. This way, your charity won’t just be limited to one person or family, you will be helping the wider society by promoting good deeds and spreading the message of love and kindness.

As Thomas Aquinas, one of history’s most famous philosophers once stated, “charity brings to life again, those who are dead.” (Forbes)

Through charity, one does not only help the one in monetary need, but he also helps his own soul by bringing it closer to selflessness and morality.

The concept of charity holds great importance in all religions. In Islam, charity is beyond just giving money or clothes. Even if you treat a person politely, it is counted as a charity. As stated in a hadith, Your smile for a brother is charity. Your removal of stones, thorns or bones from the paths of people is charity. Your guidance to a person who is lost is also charity.” (Bukhari) (Forbes) (zakat foundation of America)

We all have always known the importance of charity and the benefits too and it’s pretty obvious that each one of us has given charity to someone in one way or another.

However, there is a small issue… sometimes when we know a person who may be in a financial crisis and we want to help them but still we know that they won’t accept that help in the form of charity. It is sad but it’s true that charity is often associated with monetary help to poor and nothing beyond that – which as we just discussed, is NOT true.

Nevertheless, for such sensitive relations and matters, there is another solution. Instead of handing them money or clothes or whatsoever, now you can gift them a GIFT CARD by Imtiaz Super Market.

These gift cards are super cute and come in attractive color schemes and designs. They are also handy and easy to carry and are available in multiple prices; 500, 1000, 2500 & 5000 – so you have an option. You can purchase one or you can purchase multiple. It is completely up to you!

This is the perfect way to express your care and affection for someone without fearing to offend them or driving them away.

With these gift cards, you also give the recipients the power to choose and purchase for themselves which will make them feel independent and powerful in a time when they might be feeling hopeless.

You care about people and we care about YOU!

So let’s join hands and spread the message of love and generosity with Imtiaz Super Market’s gift cards. A gift of love!

The city of lights Karachi, have not much taller buildings back in the nineties, when I was a small kid, I always wonder that the city of light Karachi has no bigger buildings, back in the 1990’s we have limited tall buildings, what max tallest I have visited was 8 floors, with no parking floors inside the building.

Now after some developments, we do have a tall building, some really tall. I am not a person who have height phobia but still when I see from the top, like from rooftop, I have a little doubt of having fear.

Whenever I use to watch English movies and watch the tall building, I use to say why don’t we have it. And now when we have it, feels like it should be away from the cities.

Anyways, my previous office or even my new office both have tall buildings, and I love watching down those little cars feels like I am playing a game which I use to play in my childhood.

Watching these give my mind a weird power an illusion of playing and enjoying. I don’t know how others might think of it but it makes you fresh because it takes you away from the heavy mind.

Our previous Imtiaz super market head office building was also tall but not that tall, but this new head office and this new place is so and super exciting.

Although I felt the day we have shifted in this new office, things are so and super busy… we don’t get to talk a walk or go for fresh air.

In the previous office, the parking space has no window but this has a window and the wind here is mind-blowing.

The new head office  and this new building are so amazing, the current location is just amazing front view has this amazing bridge and the open road, whereas the background has some greenery along with a pool, so it is just so peaceful when you are confused or anything, you can stare out of the window. Even sometimes there are eagles sitting on the window and it gives such a pleasure to watch them this closely.

Even our tea breaks are now a fun time, because the old head office was in such a building where we have zero open windows, and now we have a bird view type location, both side windows.

The last office was dark like when we have a load shedding kind of thing, there is no light in office it uses to be a dark room, but now we have so much light in the room that we want to lower our curtains. At least now we have daylight which helps us feel alive.

At times darkness makes you depressed, and for me, darkness is not only about the blackout, its more of an artificial lightening. In our previous building, we have no window from which we can have daylight natural light in the room, and the longer one stays in artificial light its effects.

I was also affected by that darkness. But now thankfully that we have shifted and I am drooling over this new building new office everything new, also the colors that we have here are amazing and positive.

Green is cool for the eyes and also gives you some positivity…

What do you think about your office and office building? Do you watch this closely or is it only me?

And what do you think of this blog?

This is just a thought which I shared about the tall buildings, about my workplace and how lost I use to be watching it from such a top.

The night view, how can I forget to tell you about the night view of this new building, whether you look it from outside or from inside, both will give you pleasure, and relief. The lights of every passing car and the view from the bridge are mesmerizing. The evening looks when the sun is setting and the sky is changing its color, that is so beautifully breathtaking and hard to explain in words.

Sometimes when the weather is nice and we are up, feels like we will raise our hand and will touch the clouds.

Have you ever felt this?

Let me know in the comment section about your experience and do you enjoy your office building?

Until next time 😊

Every shop has time to open and close, even if it is a super market or a hypermarket they have a fixed time to open and close, no matter what the occasion is. Extra hours are only open in the last Ashra of Ramzan, where few people are busy in last min shopping or matching items, or at times last-minute some grocery shopping.

Here in Imtiaz super market, which is a hypermarket and a super market, which also have an express mart for its customer, which is open 24/7, which has emergency items available in a reasonable price. Imtiaz super market is the only super market which extends their hours only to facilitate its customers in a better way.

Is there any other super market, hypermarket or express mart which use to think in the favor for their customers?

Imtiaz super market, use to extend their timings, especially in occasions of Eid, just so that the customer can easily shop and have a great experience while shopping. They prefer to extend their all branch timings, from 10 am to 2 am, if you are unable to shop at the normal timings which are 10 am to 12 pm due to any reason you can easily avail the extended hours.

In Ramzan, Imtiaz super market has extended its hours and boom amazing response that we got, so once again we are extending its hours for our lovely and amazing Imtiaz super market family.

Enjoy your hassle-free shopping experience with its extended hours.

That one day that every kid fears and runs away from? But the same day that their parents just can’t stop thinking about and waiting for?

Yep. You got it right….

Result day!

There has never been a student who waits for result day and isn’t nervous about it, no matter how big of a nerd they be. There are two things that can happen on the day of results… either you get a gift and a hug or you get some really harsh scolding and if things go really bad… a slap.

As nerve-wracking as this whole process of waiting, finally finding out and then waiting again for the reaction you would get from your parents was, the kind of satisfaction we felt when the result was good and our parents were satisfied was out of this world!

That smile that your mother would give you, the pat from your father… perfect. Then they’d take you out for lunch or dinner or get you a gift. The way of gifting and the gifts we received kept evolving with time. Today, I’m here with another new gift idea.

Result season is here and while I write this, I too am just as nervous about mine as many of you might be. I have no idea what my result is going to be but I do know what I want as a gift if it’s good!

This year I don’t want to go out for lunch or dinner or ice cream. I would much receive some cash so I can buy what I want and when I want. I mean, why not? I don’t understand how gifting someone what you like and expecting them to like it, is fair? I know cash doesn’t sound and look as good as a gift, especially if it’s a relative you need to gift and I have a solution for that too!

GIFT CARDS!

So a gift card is basically a much sophisticated, cute and creative version of gifting cash and honestly, it’s the best creation ever!

At Imtiaz Super Market, you can purchase gift cards of Rs. 500, 1000, 2500 and 5000. So you even have the option of choosing a gift card based on how happy you are with the result! How convenient!!

The time limit to use your gift card is one YEAR! So from the moment you receive this special gift, you have a whole year to decide and choose what YOU want and purchase it from any of the branches of Imtiaz Super Market. It could be clothes, shoes, eatables, fragrances… anything!

Another option that I don’t mind receiving as a gift is CHOCOLATES! Who doesn’t like chocolates?! Chocolate, after you find out your result was good, is nothing but sweet addition to your relief!

Actually, even if the result isn’t good… chocolates are known to be really good for depression and mood swings. So if you have a friend whose result isn’t that good and he/she is not satisfied, you can still gift them a bar of their favorite chocolate that you bought from Imtiaz Super Market to make them feel a little better, considering that there is the widest assortment of both local and international chocolates available there.

Also, there is one last thing that I want to share with you all. In my opinion, we overthink and stress too much about our results. I mean, it’s good to be worried about your future but it’s completely different if you start deriving your self-worth based on your results. Your grades and points do NOT define you and you DESERVE a gift for your efforts no matter what!

So this year, regardless of what grade you or your loved ones achieve, make sure you treat yourself,  your relatives, friends and especially the little ones with a chocolatey treat or a super cute and useful gift card for their hard work.

Don’t forget to do so and let us know in the comment section below, the reaction you receive at the gifts!

Hi, guys, I m back with a new topic to discuss tell and talk… Imtiaz super market, yes, the brand itself, and what about this brand…. Here’s what I got for you all…

Whenever we hear about this name Imtiaz super market we all think about the branch… like if anyone ever says Imtiaz super market the first thing we all have in mind is branch!!!

You work where? Imtiaz super market oh okay which branch?

Followed by some of these more questions like:

How many branches and which branch to be precise, what in the branch, a sale person, what do you wear, where do you work in a branch, does branch have some sitting arrangements and so much more…

I mean why only branch why don’t people let us complete?

And when I say Head office, they all are like……

They are clueless and weird….

Now for the pleasure and laughter, I say Imtiaz super market and let them think whatever they want…

Then somedays I say head office only and let them think what and which head office…

And then somedays I say ISM head office, Imtiaz super market has a head office and I work there, please do visit our website to know more about us… and leave 😊

I feel happy whenever I say the complete thing, feels like it’s only you who knows about it, remaining the world is in dark 😀

So again …

Does Imtiaz super market have a head office?

Where is it’s head office, what happens there? And so many other questions are there which we can ask and should ask but…. We don’t ask, or people don’t ask even if they want to…

Which branch; branches are more famous than its head office and so many of us doesn’t even know about it… even before coming or joining this place I don’t know about it, I searched Facebook, I visited the website and I googled, nothing was updated… also, it was confusing, but once I was hired I was…

Whenever I visit Imtiaz super market branch, I do think about the office, there must be an office where people sit and work, other than being on the floor and working… I try to look and find where is the office because in branch there’s no sitting, no office table or office stuff… or maybe I overlook while looking to deep in there…… there’s nothing like an office, so its more like a question which I use to ask to myself…

Now I just wonder how easy it is for us to overlook and to neglect the little things or door we see…

So, let me tell you about the head office and a small or brief of what happens here:

We (team Imtiaz super market head office) consists of so many people, and by means of so many I mean thousands of people work under the name of Imtiaz super market, in total its more than 6000 workers, (including managers and peon all and everyone)

In the head office, there are the director and HOD’s of all the dept.

Along with them, there are some vendors/purchasers, who deal with the companies, which to bring on board and at what price.

We have our contact center team, which helps out the customers online, by means of on calls, via msgs and social media.

We have an e-commerce and marketing teams respectively which works passionately and more than the duty hours because creativity needs time to explore. This team includes of the digital media team, who handles all the social networks, along with the creative team which supports a lot in creating posts and content for magazines and all the creative work that you see on our page. We have our content marketing team, which looks out for the trends also helps with PR and communications. We have a media team in house, who covers all the events and helps us in making our in-house content.

The loyalty dept, and the IT dept. we have interesting dept with interesting people around, who not only learn and train, but also share knowledge with each other so that we have the opportunity

We have our import dept, which takes cares of all the important stuff.

We also have our finance dept, audit, and payables.

The admin and HR teams are also here. HR teams conduct wonderful and successful training sessions.

These are the dept we have in head office and this is the overview of our head office, so why not trying joining this amazing workplace?

And that’s a wrap for now, until next time…

Let me know in the comment section, what else you want to know more about the head office?

Hello friends, we are back with a new topic, and today we will be discussing picnics and fun…

So, are you a picnic lover?

Can you really manage picnic fun and office routine altogether?

Normally we all need a break from our hectic yet boring routine, boring because there are people who want change in their routine, and if they don’t get that particular change they use to be at their weakest point, they become fragile and want to quit.

So, apparently change is what everyone needs once a while, an opportunity to prove that they can to be experimental, sometimes we need to switch, its not that we should be expert, but trial and for a changing job change or role change even if its for a day, one should try, it gives us a chance to learn something new, also if incase that what we feel from a distance about the ease and about the job that how great other work is and our job is so…. This opportunity makes us learn that everyone has a skill of dealing with the scenario.

Anyways, our topic is an annual picnic and being a super market, like Imtiaz super market, a super market which works like every day which is open and serving its customers like anything, it feels really odd, do these people take a break ever? And so many more questions arise, along with people being exhausted and yes people do get exhausted because everyone needs a break once a while.

The head office also works for 6 days a week, but this week was exceptional as this week we all worked for 5 days because yes, we had our annual picnic day, which half of us enjoyed by staying at home and half of the staff enjoyed partying at the destination.

Talking about the destination, it was a dream world. Personally, I don’t like a dream world, because I feel like there are so many restrictions for an outsider, you can not really enjoy the things and facilities they offer, you can only roam around the place, like walk, more walk, and some more walk…. 😀

This time when we visited dream world, the weather betrayed us, usually, these days morning is so cool, but that particular morning was a bit rough, we reached office at 8 am because we have to reach at dream world at 9 am for the breakfast. They have a variety even in the breakfast, but what I feel is that the more variety you have, the more tasteless is becomes.

Anyways, the road trip the bus and the fun in the bus was amazing, as our team was the one dancing and singing so we really didn’t feel the distance was long, and omg the punctuality of timings was amazing, dot 8 am the bus was full of people and was about to leave, but we have to ask them to wait for a few people as they were late, so we waited for 10mins and then the bus left. Same in the evening bus left dot at 5 pm because we have to reach here at 6 pm. (Here means head office)

The sun was fully in the mood to burn us all, but our strength was way more than that, so we had a lot of fun along with the sunburn 😀

Things that were allowed to do and we did are in details so please keep reading and let me know how much do you agree and can relate to our story?

Do you guys like the dream world?

Oh, just by the way, in this official office picnic, the family was allowed, we could have brought 2 more people with us, and it wasn’t for free, we will have to pay 2100 for anyone we were thinking to bring along.

I was only excited to take the horse ride and pictures with the horse because there is a proper staircase which leads you to the horse height and makes easy for you to sit on a horse. As a person I am hell scared for horse ride but I want to experience it, so when we reach there and after breakfast, I thought of going for a horse ride, but then thanks to the hot weather…. Horse riding was available but due to the garmi, we didn’t take a horse ride.

What else was allowed? Let me think … ummm….

Wave pool, where we enjoyed a lot, underwater pictures and whatnot, in the pool we felt way better, but the water had extra chlorine and bitter water, even if accidentally you have it in your mouth you will feel yakh…. 😀 Still the experience was outstanding.

Within the departments, we have a singing competition too. some of them have a soft voice for songs whereas others have (phatadhol) sorry for the weird word (:D evil laughs) but yeah, some singers are really bathroom singers and should remain that way 😀

Lunch break, the time of lunch was almost closed, so we took a lunch break and had a lot of Gulab jamun, because as I have mentioned earlier that when you have a lot to choose from the taste automatically disappear. Desserts were really good and the food was okayish…

After that, we left for having some more experience because why not if we are on the picnic, we should explore….

Boating was also allowed and yes, we did take a boat ride too… It wasn’t a good experience because the boats were damage and pedals are very hard to push.

After boating, we all decided to go for horse riding but its way to long, as told you all you have to walk and walk, it was like going from east to west, and due to our extreme climate change, we were all drained in the middle of that way.

On looking right and left we felt that the bowling alley was nearby which was also opened for us, but then again when we arrived the time for bowling was over bad luck 😛

We were overtired because we had fun even on Friday night, we went ocean mall, and that’s another topic which we will cover later on in another blog, so for that stay with us…

So, after all of that, we went to the café where we sat and had a tea break which was basically the end of our picnic, we sat, drank and we talked and talked.

On our way back we all were so freaking tired that halfway we slept and on reaching office we all felt like we are not part of this universe 😀

So, this was the end and a wrap of how we had celebrated our official picnic of Imtiaz super market head office.

Let us know in the comment section below about your picnics and how you all enjoy and do on picnics.

Until next time 😊
