Meena Bazaar

VM&RD - - CONTENTS -

Meena Bazaar orig­i­nally started with a small store in Karol Bagh sell­ing printed sa­rees but even­tu­ally evolved into a lead­ing re­tail name to­day recog­nised by In­di­ans glob­ally. Es­tab­lished in 1970, the brand was founded by Suresh Manglani and Vishnu Manglani.

Sameer Manglani, owner of Meena Bazaar de­fines it as a one-stop shop for eth­nic In­dian wear, as the prod­ucts in his shop are a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of prints, em­broi­dery and all kinds of em­bel­lish­ments in In­dia. The women’s fash­ion wear is sourced from all across the coun­try in­clud­ing Ba­naras, Kolkata, Su­rat, Chandi­garh and South In­dia. They even have shawls from Jammu and Kash­mir and they source Pak­istani fab­ric from Am­rit­sar. “Best range and best price” is the per­fect slo­gan for Meena Bazaar says Sameer.

While Meena Bazaar doesn’t man­u­fac­ture their mer­chan­dise, they do work in close re­la­tion­ship with man­u­fac­tures across In­dia. They have a na­tion­wide man­u­fac­turer pres­ence. Any kind of cus­tomi­sa­tion, style, colours, sizes, em­bel­lish­ments can be eas­ily in­cor­po­rated. Meena Bazaar has also as­so­ci­ated with few de­signer brands from Kolkata and Su­rat. Their clien­tele goes back to 1970’s, in­clud­ing grand­mother’s, moth­ers and daugh­ters pur­chas­ing from the store from ages.

There are 75 stores across In­dia, with ma­jor pres­ence in Pun­jab and Ut­tar Pradesh and all metro cities. Glob­ally, there have bou­tiques in Lon­don, New York, Los An­gles and San Fran­cisco to which Meena Bazaar would ex­port as de­sign­ers. With a very loyal cus­tomer base, the brand de­cided to start the e-com­merce web­site. They claim that they are the first eth­nic re­tail brand in In­dia to start this ser­vice that in­cludes cash on de­liv­ery, pay by credit cards on de­liv­ery, sur­prise or­der­ing for dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions. Meena Bazaar has re­cently launched its off­shoot su­per lux­ury eth­nic In­dian wear brand by the name of VASTYA in Greater Kailash, Delhi.
