It has recently launched its first Planet Sports Super Store occupying an area of 30,000 sq ft. Sports equipments, accessories and apparels signifying various labels are being showcased at this store.

The main intention behind launching such large format outlets is to provide the budding consumers with a wider choice and more variety, besides an enchanting experience of shopping.
