What is Different in This Mall?
The basic difference of Metro from the other malls is that there is no entry allowed for children at certain age. The management is of the opinion that children are too young for the vast mall and may get lost, thus they are prohibited entry. Another problem that many people face in the first time they go shopping in Metro is acquiring the membership card or an NTN number. Without this membership card or NTN number, you are not allowed to shop from the mall.
For Members Only
All in all, Metro Malls offer a conducive shopping experience with a vast variety of goods under one roof and available at fair wholesale prices. When it comes to prices indeed these shopping malls are the best, its prices are competitive and seems to be the lowest as compared to other shopping malls however because children at certain age may not be allowed to enter plus the fact that shoppers must have their NTN number to be allowed to shop is the only downfall of this shopping mall. So enjoy shopping in these malls if you are looking for cheap items, you’ll surely find what you’re looking for.
