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!

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.

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 😊

Dates are part of the dried fruit’s family. Dried fruits are fruits that are dried in the sun or heated wind tunnel dryers. Dried fruits are really really good for health and my mother has always forced me to consume them as much as possible for as long as I can remember. Apart from the fact that dried foods are really healthy and nutritious, they are actually pretty tasty and make quite a good snack! Dates are one of my personal favorite dried fruit!

Not only are they super healthy and nutritious, but they are also so sweet and smooth, it’s like someone just put a cushion of healthy sugar in my mouth! I’m aware that there’re people out there who are diet and health-conscious and run miles away when they hear the word SUGAR, but there’s nothing to be scared about here! This sugar is the HEALTHIEST form of sweet ever! I’m attaching the nutritional breakdown for those who want to adjust their date cravings according to their calorie intake.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving provides the following nutrients;

  • Calories: 277
  • Carbs: 75 grams
  • Fiber: 7 grams
  • Protein: 2 grams
  • Potassium: 20% of the RDI
  • Magnesium: 14% of the RDI
  • Copper: 18% of the RDI
  • Manganese: 15% of the RDI
  • Iron: 5% of the RDI
  • Vitamin B6: 12% of the RDI

Although dates are high in calories, due to being an anti-oxidant and high in other important vitamins and minerals, they contribute to other health benefits.

Dates are not just high in vitamins and proteins, they are good for bone strength, lower cholesterol, strengthen the nervous system, promotes digestion and are also good for the skin!

Apart from all this, I’m sure everyone is aware of this fact that dates also hold some special religious importance among the Muslims. Dates were one of Holy Prophet (PBUH)’s favorite snacks and it is said to be a sunnah to consume dates, especially before IFTAAR in RAMZAN.

There is a hadith of the Holy Prophet in which he is known to have said that, “ people in a house without a date are in a state of hunger..” (MUSLIM) (News)

Keeping all this in mind, Imtiaz Super Market in their most recent weekly magazine launched a feast like a sale on dates named the ‘DAWAT-E-KHAJOOR’.

In this magazine, details of sale prices on multiple types of dates and date related products are included. Different types of dates like Safawi, Khodari, etc. from multiple international brands have been imported specially for this sale. Out of all this, my personal favorite is the choco-dates!

This particular product will be every chocolate lover’s favorite! If you’ve got a sweet tooth and love both chocolates and dates, then what can be better than having those both together?! JUST YUMMY!

With this magazine, the retail is promoting the idea of healthy snacking and a healthy diet along with the emphasis on the idea that dates are not just a fruit that you can buy or should eat in RAMZAN. They are delicious and healthy and you should consume and benefit from them throughout the year!

Along with these dates, sale on other various products is also there.

The sugar, proteins, and other vitamins in the fruit help in weight gain, especially when you need it. Incidentally, it’s said that when eaten with cucumber, dates help to keep your weight at a normal level. Now that’s what we call flexibility!

And guess what! According to this magazine, there is a sale on fresh cucumbers too!  So combine the two for an even healthier diet!

Being a date lover, I personally loved this sale! Do you like dates? Did you like this sale idea? And which date product became YOUR favorite?

Let me know BELOW! J

 

Do you know what’s the worst thing about shopping in a supermarket? Standing in queues!!!

Standing behind a whole line of people, waiting for them to get all their purchases checked out…. It’s SO frustrating! Especially when you just needed very few products!

But you don’t need to stress anymore. Imtiaz Super Market has worked on plans and organizational schemes specifically for efficient queue management just so you can have a stress free shopping experience.

While it is ensured that the staff members with duty on cash counters are fast and efficient with their work so the customers don’t get frustrated while waiting in lines for ages, cash counters have also been divided based on client categories for further ease.

Apart from the regular cash counters that are available in every supermarket, express counters for those with lesser products are there to prevent annoyance and unnecessary waiting. Isn’t that amazing!

What’s better is that there is also a special counter for aged clients; the senior citizen’s counter. How thoughtful! These are the things that make Imtiaz so special and unique from other retail brands.

And as if that wasn’t enough… the team at Imtiaz Super Market that is constantly thinking about and for their clients decided to make things even easier by introducing ‘MOBILE POS’.

An mPOS (mobile point of sale) is a when a phone or tablet is dedicated to check out purchases and perform the functions usually done at a cash counter, now wirelessly.

So basically instead of you walking to the counter, now the counter is going to walk towards YOU!

Let alone waiting in queues… you don’t even have to stand in a queue anymore!! Wherever you are in the store and have made your purchases but are in a hurry, you can request a staff member with an mPOS to cash you out from there. This is just perfect for when you only stopped by to make a quick purchase of one or two items.

Even better!! If a staff member sees you standing in a line with your few purchases and notices you being unaware about the facility, they themselves will walk up to you to make your life easy and cash you out as soon as possible. There is one staff member at every two cash counters so there will never be an issue of feeling left behind as a customer.

Like I said… Imtiaz family GENUINELY cares about your convenience and they prove it time and time again!

So hurry up now and rush to your nearest Imtiaz Super Market outlet and buy as less or as much as you want without having to stress about the longggg queues that we all JUST hate!

Indeed, it is an ultimate shopping experience!
