The Coimbatore based Jagannath Textile Company Limited, a fast-growing integrated textiles manufacturing company has opened the country's largest Exclusive Brand Outlet (EBO) for men's innerwear under its popular brand name 'Crusoe'.

The 1750 sq.ft store located in Coimbatore will be one of its kind in the premium innerwear category for men. This is Crusoe's first Exclusive Brand Outlet, a concept store, attempting to bring out the character of the brand through a retail environment.

Crusoe's brand imagery of being adventurous was taken as the 'essence' and funneled in the design of retail elements inside the store. The store design revolves around being adventurous.

Fixtures, furniture, ceiling, lighting, shelving, window display etc all are derived from elements of 'adventure sports' and are showcased accordingly. For example Skateboards form shelves for merchandise and kayaks form lighting in ceiling.

All graphics and imagery project the brand attitude and reinforces the brand promise and communication. The store will provide the customer a unique brand experience and an adventurous ambience, true to its brand identity of appealing to an younger audience. Crusoe targets young customers in the age group of 16-35 years.

The company has also drawn up aggressive expansion plans pan-India with the roll-out of such EBOs across cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Pune, Chandigarh etc this financial year.

The Company plans to open 100 EBOs across the country in the next five years.
