Vishal Retail spread wings to reach new horizons

Apr '08
“Future is thinking beyond horizon” & in order to keep its pace with the modern retail, one of the fastest growing retail chain in India, Vishal Ritail Limited is spreading its wings.

Instead of resting on its laurels the Group are busy identifying new avenues of growth by venturing in other formats like cash & carry, convenios as well as specialty stores and inspiring local retailers to grow along with the big names. The group is also in talk with HPCL & has come up with an institute to train manpower for the service industry.

Vishal Retail Limited, Flagship Company of Vishal Group, engaged in Hyper Market stores with an average area of 25,000 to 30,000 sq. ft. through an impressive chain of more than 100 fully integrated stores in spread of more than the area of around 22, 00,000 sq. ft. in 69 cities across India & has a plan to cross total retail area of 35 lakh sq. ft. in tier II and tier III cities by the end of 2009.

According to Mr. Ram Chandra Agarwal, CMD, Vishal Retail Limited, the group owes its origin to a small 50 sq ft shop in Kolkata's Lal Bazaar that started selling readymade garments. In tune with the pulse of the market, he envisioned a mega store that would sell garments at prices none other could match.

The first big store opened in Calcutta's Esplanade area in 1997, under the banner of Vishal Garments. He was involved in all the aspects of the business: right from sourcing the garments to interacting with customers. And this led to his greatest finding “The Vishal Group.”

After identifying the immense market in fashion garment for the masses, He moved to delhi in 2001 and opened his first store in Delhi's Rajouri Garden by the name of Vishal Mega Mart (The jewel in Vishal Group's crown) and then there was no looking back for Mr. Ram Chandra Agarwal.

At present, in addition to garments, Vishal Mega Mart stores retail the entire range of household products, FMCG and electronic goods. Vishal's prices are roughly 15 to 20 per cent less than other mass market garment labels.

Mr. Ram Chandra Agarwal, CMD, Vishal Retail Limited believes that the shopping habits of Indians are changing due to their growing disposable income, higher aspirations, relative increase in the younger population, and the change in attitudes towards shopping.
