Jiyo Life King Size – This is the funda we follow.

Ludhianvis are crazy about shopping. Though Ludhiana has big malls and open markets but there are some places in Ludhiana which are first of its kind. Caliber plaza (AC market) is one place like that. Few years back, Ludhiana city was not having big malls like MBD for shopping, there were shopping places like Maujpura Bazar, Chaura Bazar, Ghumar Mandi, Ghanta Ghar and other good markets in Ludhiana. Over the past few years, most of the markets changed their concept of retail market rather they enteres wholesale business.



Caliber Plaza was first of its kind. Before Caliber plaza, there was no air-conditioned market in the city. Caliber plaza is located near clock tower, opposite Bhadaur House. It is considered as landmark for the development of the city.

Market was initially a centre of attraction for not only city people but also for people from neighbouring villages. People were even crazy to see car parking, which parked the vehicle at fifth floor via elevator. Though now people are not that crazy about the market but still it hasn’t lost its



The retail trade in market hasn’t picked up yet. Initially it was expected to make the impact on retail market but the shops for retail were not occupied. Though there are retail shops in market which running very well but in comparison to wholesale dealers the number is quite less. The plaza is mostly known for wholesale market these days.

Initially the market was occupied by only wholesale cloth dealers but later wholesalers and retailers of medicines, readymade garments, audio cassettes, electrical appliances and many others.

Despite of low retail trade and high wholesale, this market is considered as one of the
prime markets of the city.
