Bharti Retail

The world's largest retailer Wal-Mart, which prefers to go it alone outside the US, chose Sunil Mittal's Bharti Enterprises as its partner in India. The venture will start with the cash & carry (wholesale) format, which could be extended to retail operations once foreign direct investment is allowed in multi-brand retail, as is expected. The entity is yet to start operations as the formal agreement has not been inked.

Other large corporate houses are also quickly making their retail entry plans. In the list are Tata's with their Croma Stores, Dabur with H&B Stores, Godrej, any many others. The retail scene is hotting up with lot of action.Pantaloon Retail (India)

Pantaloon's managing director Kishore Biyani believes in changing the rules. When Pantaloon started the Big Bazaar discount stores in 2002, malls were not part of the shopping culture. Big Bazaar became a hit, as it combined the look and feel of Indian bazaars with aspects of modern retail like choice, convenience and quality. Headquartered in Mumbai, the Rs 3,500-crore company now operates over 5 million sq ft across 40 cities.
