Keemat Grocers 3 Opens in the Willowbrook Area


HOUSTON: The grand opening of one of the largest South Asian Grocery stores in Houston – Keemat Grocers 3 on FM 1960 and Cutten Road  – was a smashing success on Sunday,  November 9. From 1-5PM  Sunil T with his crazy Masala Crew pumped the 5000 sq ft modern grocery store with DJ Nish’s Bollywood music, random contests, dances, TV giveaways, and general dhamaal.  The Masala Radio grand opening attracted more than 2000 people from Cypress to Galveston.

Six lucky drawn patrons put their kitchen skills to test at a fast-paced salad making competition.  Contestants had 20 minutes to select all their ingredients from Keemat, wash the vegetables, and chop up their unique creations.  Salads contained everything from the Keemat fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro, to exotic dates, pomegranate seeds, paneer, yoghurt, and even sev!  Jay Bhatija won the first prize $100 Keemat Gift Certificate, followed by second place $50 winner Deepti Kanhere, and third place $25 Pinki Garg.  Families with kids were amused with Rikshaw Rides and a Giant Moonwalk Combo, while ladies perused the stalls from Sheli Desai Purse and Jewelry, Chiros Clothing by Jigyasa, Ritz Beadz, and Home Decor by Vandana.   Discount Power gave free T-shirts, Bags, and Asia Movie Tickets. The most excitement came at 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM as Keemat raffled away two 50” plasma televisions to winners Jessica Mathle and Sakshi Garg.

The mouthwatering free pani-puri , warm tea, Haldiram Paratha, and Natura Ice Cream samples kept the crowd fueled for four hours of non-stop Dhamaal.  Owner Kawal Oberoi as well as all three Keemat Grocers Managers, and the friendly staff keep the front-to-end lines moving with smiling customer service.   Keemat 3 Store Manager Dharmesh said “Only Sunil can pull in this kind of crowd – some of the guests just stayed for all four hours, just to watch the non-stop contest and performances.  The craziest 10 minutes was the “You-Name-Your-Price” Game where customers could name their price on any one item.  $100 Karrom Board was given for $25!!  Items at ridiculous prices were given away, but it was all in the spirit of the grand opening, as we welcomed the community to enjoy our modern store design, low prices, and excellent customer service!”
