UAE-based Lulu Group will invest $300 million in Karnataka in the retail, logistics and hospitality sectors, the group announced recently. As part of this, the first Lulu mall will come up in Bengaluru’s Rajajinagar area by August. Lulu’s investment plan for Karnataka was communicated during a discussion between chief minister BS Yediyurappa and group chairman Yusuff Ali MA on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The company will also set up two five-star hotels in Bengaluru through Twenty14 Holdings, its hospitality arm, and a modern logistics centre in the Uttara Kannada region, according to a report in top English-language daily.

Lulu Group’s retail initiative Tablez brought Toys `R’ Us, one of the world’s largest toy store chains, to Bengaluru in 2017. Started in the Phoenix Mall in Whitefield, it competes with Reliance-owned Hamleys.

Tablez has also brought in other international brands such as American ice cream parlour chain Cold Stone Creamery, South Africa-based flame-grilled chicken concept Galito’s, and Tablez’ own brand Bloomsbury’s, a boutique cafe and bakery. It has also launched Spanish fashion brands Springfield and Women’secret.
