Dadar-the Nerve centre of Mumbai
Dadar is one of the main shopping area of Mumbai where you can find all kind of things at reasonable prices. It is a small place in Mumbai with a railway station on the Mumbai Suburban Railway. It has Western Railway line and the Central Railway line on both the side.
Dadar is clearly demarcated into East and West by the railway line. Dadar East is better known as the Dadar T.T. here you can find the buses that go across the country. Dadar West is referred to Dadar B. B.. The shopping market in Dadar West Market is popular for shopping amongst the residents of Mumbai.
Dadar is a home to Shivaji Park and is a huge play ground for some of the best cricket players in the world including Sachin Tendulkar.
With the world’s largest retailer Walmart opening stores across the country by this August, Toys‘R’Us — famous toystore is set to follow suit. In fact, the United States-based toy and family product retailer is learnt to be close to finalizing a deal to lease a space in the retail mall at Kohinoor Mills in Dadar.
In Mumbai, many of the mills have shut down. The mushrooming of the malls has resulted from the redevelopment of the land reclaimed from the sale of these mills. The retail mall that is being constructed at Kohinoor Mills in Dadar has 35,000 sq-ft of space and four multiplexes of 70 to 300 seated will be constructed.
Apart from four restaurants and food-courts, about 20,000 sq-ft will be used to set up play stations and joy rides exclusively for children. To ensure a smooth flow of traffic, they will be providing parking space for 1,200 cars.
And you thought that shopping at Walmart and Toy ‘R’Us was possible only if you traveled abroad?
