Junction Shopping Mall is the latest addition in the town of Durgapur. This latest buzz of the town is situated in between Gandhi More and City Centre. The Junction Mall is the largest shopping mall in any town of eastern India other than Kolkata. The project is being conceived and developed by Bengal Shrachi Housing Development Ltd.
This mall culture first came to this Steel Town of Durgapur with Big Bazaar. Over the years several other shopping malls has came up in Durgapur and quite a few are in line to come. The fact that Durgapur is one of the fastest developing cities of eastern India is further proved by the setting up of such huge mall. Though the mall is yet to be fully functional, but the very sight of this huge mall, especially in the evening hours when it gets lit up, is amazing and is bound to make you spell bound.
To be fully functional, the Junction Mall will take another year. Only a part of the mall is operational now. KFC, Kentuky Fried Chicken has been the first shop that opened its door for the customer. Gradually, Tata Motors showroom, Crossword showroom, Louis Phillipe showroom, Max showroom, Khadim and Bata showroom started their operation in the mall. More national and international brands, like Shopper’s Stoppe and others are on the verge of opening their respective showroom.
The kind of crowd gathering which the Junction Mall is witnessing at present, even when it is not fully completed, is something amazing. One can easily guess that in future, when the mall becomes fully functional, it will be the most happening place of the town of Durgapur.
