“There is a big gap in apparel offerings in the market..we are looking to cover that with Super Young brand," Venkta told PTI adding that they would position the new brand by opening smaller stores in metro cities and in premiums shopping malls.

"We expect 'Super Young' to contribute 18-19 % in our total sales..We plan to invest Rs 20 crore for expansion. This sum will be utilised for brand building and development of new products," he said.

"At present, we have one operational store in Saudi Arabia...we plan to open two more by September this year..We are also in discussion to open more stores in international locations...but it may take time to materialise..," he said.

The company also supplies its products to Fiji, Mauritius and Nepal. (SH)
