The first quarter has taken the Speedo brand to 1060 plus stores including large format stores across 104 cities and 8 Speedo exclusive brand outlets located in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Pune.

Jockey products are also retailed through more than 35,000 retail stores in 1200 cities and towns across India.

Sunder Genomal, managing director at Page Industries said, “The first quarter of 2015-16 was unique and eventful as we launched our women's sleepwear range Relax this quarter.”

“Comfortable and stylish, these cotton modal blend pajamas trimmed with delicate feminine lace edging has already received a very positive response from all our loyal women customers,” he added.

“This is an exciting category that will further help establish the Jockey brand as a woman's brand as well,” Genomal informed.
