On Thursday last week, Special Judicial Magistrate East Karachi had issued orders to the management of the recently opened store to remain close from 3:30pm till 9:30 pm.

The orders were issued after the supermarket failed miserably to come up with its own parking space amid poor planning.

However, the store owners challenged the order at the court SHC, saying it was ruining their business.

“If people are parking their cars at wrong points even after warnings, impose fine on them. They will forget to visit any store again,” said Sajjad Ali Shah Chief Justice SHC during the hearing on Monday.

The court also directed the authorities to manage traffic properly instead of getting the supermarket closed down.
