Marks & Spencer opens first flagship store in South India
Apr '13
Marks & Spencer (M&S) has opened its first flagship standalone store in South India at Koramangala in Bangalore, under M&S’s ongoing strategy to grow its presence in India. M&S’s fifth store in Bangalore was inaugurated by Radhika Pandit and Venu Nair, Managing Director, Marks & Spencer Reliance India Pvt Ltd.

With over 23,000 sq ft of selling space over two floors, the new format store aims to make the store more inviting, inspiring and easier to shop for customers with an exciting new take on fashion displays. The store offers a truly international shopping experience with this season’s latest collections and M&S’s exclusive innovations across womenswear, menswear, kidswear – as well as accessories, lingerie and a selection of beauty products.

Speaking at the opening, Radhika Pandit, said, “I am delighted to be associated with the launch of the first standalone M&S store in South India. I have been an M&S customer for a very long time and love the experience every time I shop at M&S. It’s great to have the M&S store in Koramangala in such a popular location in the city, which will make it the latest shopping destination for shoppers. The new collection available at the store is bound to make a strong style statement for the season ahead.”

Venu Nair, Managing Director of Marks & Spencer Reliance India, said: “Bangalore provides us with an exciting platform to grow our presence in India. We have a fantastic high street location for our new flagship store, which showcases an extensive range of our high quality, great value and innovative product.”

The new format store provides each clothing brand its own distinct look and identity and allows customers to see which brand best meets their personal style preferences. For example; an ethnically casual look for Indigo Collection includes trestle tables, whilst a sports-inspired look for Blue Harbour has authentic wooded sporting equipments.

Examples of M&S’ popular clothing brands at the store include:
•Autograph – Luxurious, chic and sophisticated, the range embodies understated, international style.
•Limited Collection- Edgy, desirable and always right on trend, Limited Collection knows how to turn heads.
•Per una - Alive with romance and drama, the clothes are feminine, vibrant and passionate.
•Indigo Collection – Soft, pretty and coordinated casualwear, the collection is perfect for women who need easy style for a busy life.
•M&S Woman and M&S Man – Stylish, dependable but still inspiring, the range brings you the great value clothes you love.
•Blue Harbour – the clean, masculine range offers men considered style, where casual can still be smart.
•Collezione – Inspired by all things Italian, the range expresses confidence and attention to detail in every suave, stylish piece.
•North Coast - is a relaxed attitude to life, reflected in a casual, laid back look.
