If you are a Vizagite then you might have a connection with CMR central which is in Maddilapalem. If you are not, you must know the connection between Vizagites and CMR central.
CMR Central is a shopping mall located at Maddilapalem. It was developed by Chandana Mohan Rao, the founder of CMR shopping malls. But what made the CMR central special is that this is one of the biggest malls in Vizag with over 6 floors and almost 55 branded stores under the same roof.
This mall was opened on 2010, January 2nd. That was the time when the modern world was developing. This mall has prominent international outlets like KFC, the thick shake factory, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Baskin Robbins etc. which were then the nearest outlets Vizagites had access to. People went crazy to try out these foods for the first time.
Also, that’s when smartphones were evolving too! People used to wander inside and outside the mall just for the Wifi. Sounds funny though.
It is one of the malls that has shopping, food and gaming under one roof, which makes it unique and popular. This made that one place the centre of attraction that unites all Vizagites. From children to old people all were under this roof for fun and shopping.
Central is the one that also has a multiplex with 4 screens, which is quite different from other theatres as one can go to a movie after they finish their shopping.
Many shopping brands like Reliance Trends, Max, Levis, Peter England, flying machine are under this roof. This mall also has a spa, jewelry shop, gifts shop and hometown – a place for all furniture and home decor. Later on, many new famous outlets were opened like Burger King, McDonalds, Turkish ice cream, reliance digital, tattoo stalls etc.
The main speciality of this mall is the gaming zone. This is heaven for kids and teenagers. Many people visit this mall only for this zone. This place consists of many games and play zone where people spend most of their time here. It also has a mirror house, which is the first mirror maze in Vizag where people there are mirrors all over the place from start to end. This place also has a horror house, where you get to experience the ghosts and darkness with people in the getup of ghosts to scare you. This one is something you need not miss!
With time there were stalls where Virtual reality games and movies were introduced in this mall. Games like bowling were also included with an increasing popularity. The bungee jump was also present outside the mall where people wait to experience it.
This was the first biggest mall in Vizag which makes it special for all the Vizagites. People do visit for shopping, fun and gaming and even for time pass! This is the meeting spot for many people. If there is anything that brings Vizagites under the same roof, it is CMR Central!
People of Vizag made CMR Central one of the must-visit places. If you ever visit Vizag don’t forget to give this place a visit.
