It now proposes to launch exclusive retail outlets in various cities across the country. The firm has also set up counters at high streets and in retail shops in malls across the country for selling its products.

Presently, Zippo has presence in around 20-25 markets in Tier II and III cities in India, where it is getting good response. However, its core focus is to tap the markets of the country's top 10 cities.

The company is also planning to open a flagship outlet in a well-known retail zones in Mumbai or New Delhi by June 2012.

The firm has opened a Zippo concept outlet in the US and proposes to take the same concept globally. All the flagship outlets of the brand in various countries would stick to the same format to retain the brand's legacy.
