What's it all about?

Jilani Stores is one of several businesses owned by Mushtaq Jilani. The grocery shop has been a fixture of Silver Street for many years and always does a roaring trade, and Mushtaq likes to see it as the cornerstone of his little "empire". 

People from all walks of life pass through the shop, and Mushtaq likes the fact that his store helps him to keep his finger on the local pulse. From chillis and okra to herbs, spices and halaal meat, whatever you want Jilani Stores has it - and best of all it's on your doorstep.

Most likely to see there: 

Mushtaq - Checking up on his employees
Krishan - Spending all his pocket money on sweets

Classic moments:

- An arson attack aimed at Imran when he confessed to killing Mickey Reynolds badly damaged the store...
- Rozena had it painted in Silverhill Rangers colours when Mushtaq bought the club

And another thing... 

Did you know Rita bought decongestant from Jilani Stores for Kamla to rub on her chest? Yuk!
