Qurm commercial area

After Gonu the qurm commercial area practically drowned.
Now around a month after Gonu only sabco reopened.
None of the fast food chains reopened yet.
What was once the prime area in the muscat region is now one of the quietest areas in the capital area.
Much has changed since Gonu.
If you have any information on the reopening of any of the centers or restaurants please post the information here.

Do you know a shop where I can find Canon ink here in Mct ?
I remember the guy in araimi told me they were the only one but there must be someone else in town i hope

none that i know of possibly one of the alfairs
if not then i think it has to be a trip to city centre
you could always give modern electronics house in sabco a try
sabco is open btw

Really? Sabco is re-opened? That's great!!

I thought it would really take so long for Al-Qurum Commercial Area to re-open. But if Sabco re-opened it seems it won't take so long until the other shops and malls re-open.

doubt it
the other centres have a different structure than sabco
most of the shopping malls in that area have a floor below the level of the 1st floor
thus making them much more vulnerable during floods

I've been at Qurum last week, well Al-Araimi is opened too, but the building is partially dead. It looks like a haunted house and the bottom floor is compltely destroyed! Just a few shops opened there ...
