Megamart, the retail arm of India's largest integrated textile manufacturer and leading branded apparel & retailer, Arvind Ltd., just turned 15.

On December 14, 1994, Megamart launched its first value retail outlet in Mahadevapura.

Megamart symbolizing the fashion and value conscious urban youth aspirations, completely transformed the Indian Retail scene and ushered in the era of Value Retail in India.

Speaking on the joyous occasion, Mr. J Suresh, CEO - Arvind Brands & Retail said, “The last 14 years haven't been easy, but thanks to the immense support of our customers, employees and stakeholders, we have led the value retail revolution in India and will continue to do so. And now as we enter our 15th year, it is time for us to thank everyone who has helped us in our journey so far. I look back at those last 14 years with immense pride and joy and look forward to the coming years with great optimism and with a vision of turning India into the retail hub of the world.”

Megamart operates over a network of 130 stores in 45 cities across India, and has no plans of stopping. Amid its anniversary celebrations, Megamart is now stepping into the next major growth phase.
