Most kids hate the thought of going to school, especially after a long and enjoyable vacation. The phrase ‘back to school’ usually sounds like a horror story but Imtiaz Super Market aims to change that for students, staff, and parents!

Shopping for school accessories can be quite tiring and boring and feel like a task that you want to avoid but we assure a shopping experience that you will enjoy.

Usually famous for its grocery items, Imtiaz Super Market constantly introduces and launches campaigns and packages that their consumers can benefit from. This time around, with their latest ‘back to school’ campaign, the Imtiaz family aims to not only provide children and parents with school necessities but also plan activities in which they can participate and learn from. In this campaign, a video inspiring all audiences to stay motivated about the school season and prepare enthusiastically will also be released soon.

Global warming is a serious issue. As time is passing, our environment is suffering more and more due to carelessness and lack of ownership that the citizens are showing towards it.

There are animal species that are becoming extinct, places in the world where glaciers are melting and there is no doubt that the climate is constantly rising and seasons are becoming extreme.

There are a lot of causes of this and one of the major ones is plastic usage. Most of the plastic that is used is one-use, which means that it is discarded after being used once and is not reused or recycled. Also, most of the plastic that is consumed locally and normally is unrecyclable which automatically makes it harmful for the environment.

While the side-effects of plastic usage are already harmful, what is worse is the environmental effects of plastic production. The production process of plastic is one of the leading reasons for excess carbon emissions that lead to global warming. A lot of energy and resources are required to produce plastic with 90% and more being produced from fossil fuel resources. This has awful repercussions for the environment.

For a sustainable environment, one of the most important steps that are required is the controlled usage of plastic products.

For this reason, Imtiaz Super Market being a responsible citizen promotes usage of paper bags and cloth bags instead of plastic bags. In 3 branches, paper bags have already been introduced and with time, this shall extend to all branches.  Furthermore, ‘go green’ campaigns are launched frequently by Imtiaz Super Market. Recently, a plantation drive was held by Imtiaz Super Market in Clifton, Karachi.

Although it might seem impossible to eliminate plastic from our lives completely, it is anything but! Instead of purchasing plastic bags and bottles, we can use paper bags and boxes or glass bottles. We can use matches to light fires instead of lighters that are usually made of plastic. Giving up gum is also a great idea as it is made of synthetic rubber which is basically plastic.

If we stop using plastic, industries will stop producing them.

Our environment is something that we’ve borrowed from our future generations, and we need to realize this and take ownership of it.

It’s about time that we start caring about our actions and their consequences on a larger scale and GO GREEN!

 

 

Normally, when there’s a birthday, an anniversary or a wedding, that we can’t stop asking from others, what are we supposed to give as a gift or how to make people feel special while giving them something worth it. Giving cash out also feel weird at times, so what next?

Image result for giftsGifting someone for the first time is easy but when you have to give them like every year or twice in a year, its quite complicated as options goes completely vein and in that vein, we sniffed around the fanciest, chanciest brands, and found the cheapest, nicest item from each (many of which, we should note, are not cheap-cheap — only relatively so) that would make a wonderful, indulgent gift, especially for the stumpers on your list. Sometimes, being brand-obsessed when it comes to gifts is good, but then again the choices are totally unpredictable. There is something so glamorous about opening a Chanel gift box — even when what’s inside said a box is a bar of soap.Related image

So, for keeping everything in place, companies have introduced gift cards, which become people’s favorite thing to give and to have one. No issue of choices or return or exchange or size issue. Just give them the card and let the person decide himself/herself what they like to have.

These ideas of gift cards have done wonders around the world, in every sector people are now preferring gift cards, whether a fashion brand, a retail store or an e-com venture, everyone has different gift cards to offer, at different occasions.

So, here in Imtiaz Super Market, we are also planning to announce a series of gift cards, for every occasion with every kind of range to offer, from the minimum amount of 500 to max of 5000.

Now, forget the tension of what to give, just visit the stores and buy your gift card, which will be valid for a long time than expected.

Relax!! This won’t happen, as our systems are well efficient in recognizing all the factors, also our teams are working and testing every aspect to overcome such frauds and activities.

The company is also planning to announce more gift cards as per the demand, as this product goes on top or gives a good response they might extend more of variety or range.

So stay tuned for more such exciting news and stuff.

You have encountered a lot of co-operating events, but thinking about Imtiaz Super Market, nobody can think about a cooperate sport event, cause people here still think that working in Imtiaz Super Market means a branch, a store where you can be a sales girl or on cash counter or may be on a different role in a different section, but you are working on a store level in some branch.

So, with this kind of a mindset whenever we say a cooperate event it’s really hard to clear the dust-out 😊



Here we are going to talk about the HEAD OFFICE of Imtiaz Super Market which arranged a Cricket Tournament, naming it asImtiaz Super Market, CRICKET LEAGUE”.


Guess-who-is-the-winner2.jpg

Imtiaz Super Market CRICKET LEAGUE


It consisted of only Head Office colleagues, which includes department like HR, Audit, Procurement, Finance, IT, Marketing, Customer Contact Center and the TEA boys, even Peons were involved too, not as a tea boy or there post, but as a team player like one of us.

So, the good thing was, for this tournament, everyone was so involved that they actually forgot which dept they are from or which designation they had, they were all one and from there they were divided into four teams.



Everyone was excited, as it was a cricket tournament, and cricket is some kind of close to everyone. The spirit and the passion people have for cricket is commendable.

As this news revolved, everyone started to create a team regardless of any segregation of post, rooms or anything. As mentioned above 4 teams took place, one was led by HR head, one was led by Marketing head, one was by a Category manager (health and beauty) and the last team was led by a GRN maker. Everyone was given a fair chance to become lead or captain of the team. Almost 180 people were engaged in this tournament.

Names for the teams were: Imtiaz Super Market Hawks, Kings, Tigers, Shaheen.

The T-shirts and the flag somehow look like this:

For this tournament, our managers were kind enough to find some sponsors as well, which were PONAM, IMTIAZ, OVEN FRESH, HOME SENSE.

TROPHIES | Proud Partners


The match started at around 7 PM and was fully active till morning 5 AM, back to back all the matches were fixed.


Imtiaz Super Market League which turned out to be an amazing event. Some people got some serious injuries even, and some got minor injuries. All the excitement and all the hype all the practices were worth it totally. They did some polling before the match that what everyone thinks about the teams and a wild guess who will win. The results were somehow expected as per the hype. The final match and results of the back to back match were totally unexpected. Totally the opposite of what we thought.

Sharing some amazing glimpses from that event:

And the match won by our HR dept, Imtiaz Super Market Shaheen.

For now, that’s all about the cooperate cricket event by Imtiaz Super Market.


Whenever someone mentions that they are working in Imtiaz Super Market, people ask which branch?
So, firstly, every market or mart or store which is expanded to this level, do have a head office or can have a head office too. Imtiaz Super Market has a head office where they have HR dept, its audit dept, its finance dept, and the list goes on. From where its CEO watches all the branches, functions and dept through a hawk eye view.
Now do you know how many branches does Imtiaz Super Market have, total branches, their locations, and their presence hitting which areas?
Let’s explore this journey with me, which many of us doesn’t know, including me.
I have only witnessed Imtiaz Super Market few branches, means personal visits and shopping experience. As a child, I use to know one and only branch and that is Bahadurabad branch, the first ever store from which they had grown to such a new level.
Talking about its first ever branch, Bahadurabad, it was initially a really small and congested shop, I use to visit it with mum for grocery. The range of edible grocery is amazing, you can get anything to everything there, from herbs to pluses, rice to wheat, along with the guarantee of being clean and the price is so affordable along with the packaging, like from a small amount of herb to a full package, from minimum to maximum quantity.
Later on, I use to visit Imtiaz Super Market, because of medicines. Imtiaz Super Market provides more discounts on medicine than any other Super Market in Pakistan, i.e. 12% of discount.
After almost 8 years, because of the increase in demand for Imtiaz Super Market and the crazy or massive footfall they thought of opening another branch, right beside passport office, and why not? I mean, while waiting for the turn why not go and buy some stuff or even after getting free from all the hassle why not some beverages or things like frozen food to buy?
Even this branch got a huge response, as per Imtiaz Super Market amazing price range, it has attracted and gained more popularity amongst people.
Initially  Imtiaz Super Market was famous only in the range of normal middle-class families, after this branch, it got a lot more attention, even from the upper class. To divert such an amazing response and footfall, and to ease out the customers, for more facility Imtiaz  Super Market opens its two more branches, one in DHA and other in Nazimabad. Two big branches allowing more capacity of people to shop and enjoy the ultimate shopping experience.
People from other cities who came on vacations even, use to shop and go back with the items, mentioning the fame on their social channels, which make Imtiaz more confident to grow and expand its wings outside Karachi too.
Moving to Punjab sector, Imtiaz Super Market opens up at Faisalabad and Gujranwala, to serve more and more people. Because their mission is to unlock the potential of customers buying power to improve their quality of life.
Coming back to the city where it all started off, “From inception to a bigger reality”. They again planned for more expansion, this time they target the most populated area “Gulshan” along with a mindset of going larger as per area than any other branch, to facilitate more people. Regardless of the parking issue faced by people, still Imtiaz has a massive footfall along with a great demand for groceries and other stuff.
They have opened a few more branches this year, near Malir, because all the branches were at a distance, and people were demanding a lot more than expected. Then coming back to the same area, near Tariq road and at Sharfabad.
Oh! Did I mention that Sharfabad branch is Imtiaz Super Market express, which means, they are serving customers like 24/7?
