I and my family live in Jeddah, there are many departmental stores in every street for daily necessities but when we heard about the Al-Bashawat store in Jeddah and many people have started talking about it, so then my family and I decided to go at this store.

When we reached there around 4 pm, there were a lot of people were waiting outside. After waiting in queue we got the chance to go inside and look around the store.
Umrah & Hajj Visitors & from other cities of KSA should visit Al-Bashawat Store
Are you a visitor to Saudi Arabia on Haj or Umrah Visa? I believe the Hajj & Umrah Visa holders are allowed to visit the city of Jeddah. By the way, most of the Umrah and Hajj visitors normally visit Jeddah city for different amusement and especially for the visit of a very famous market called Al-Balad.
Al-Balad is a very renowned market which is quite famous because of the sale of a variety of items along with the cheapest prices which is difficult to find anywhere else. Read more: Places to Visit in Jeddah
We recommend that those visiting Jeddah on Hajj and Umrah visa should visit Al-Bashawat store, where they can buy the bulk of their required items for a price ranging between SAR.1 to SAR.10.
If you find that the items will have more weight to carry with you through your normal flight luggage, you can definitely cargo them through any air cargo services offering cheap prices. We assure you after adding the cargo cost also, you will find the prices of the Al-Bashawat purchased products cheap as compared to anywhere else.

The environment of this Store
The store was very crowded if people have a chance to buy things at low prices then why they would go to the expensive stores. So, people choose this store Because of its cheap prices and better quality things.
The environment was very clean but not calm the mess of things surrounded all over the store. That is why all types of people were there for shopping. The main goal of this store is to provide better for all.
After so many shopping from the Al-Bashawat store we went to counters to beat the long line so that the store won’t close on us we arrived at 4 p.m. but it’s almost 8 p.m. public establishments close the store during prayer times so we managed to run towards the counter. We bought a lot of stuff but it was our first experience and great experience over there. My family and I decided to visit the store again.
