On the back of these headwinds, FY17 has seen a softer growth of 9 per cent. We are very positive about FY18 as we have a slew of exciting actions to bring Romance back to Retail. We will also see our investments in Omni-channel, digitisation of stores and our e-commerce push bear fruit in the coming year," said Govind Shrikhande, customer care associate & managing director of Shoppers Stop.
