The company presently has 400 stores of its own and its products are also available in more than 4,000 multi-brand stores across the country.
 
Mr. Harkirat Singh, managing director of Woodland, said the company opens 50-60 new outlets every year and in 2012 managed to open 60 new outlets, and this year Woodland is expecting to open 60-70 stores in big and small cities, Economic Times reported quoting PTI.
 
The brand has a presence in bigger as well as smaller cities and would continue to expand across the country, Mr. Singh added.
 
The apparel company’s 70 percent revenue currently comes from tier I cities, but the firm expects to generate more income from tier II and tier III cities after opening new stores.
 
Mr. Singh said that each Woodland store sees an investment of approximately Rs. 15-20 million and the current fiscal year’s total investments to open these stores would be Rs. 1 billion.
