RE­TAIL YA­TRA of VM&RD stops over at cities in the length and breadth of our vast coun­try and bring to you suc­cess­ful lead­ers in the in­de­pen­dent re­tail sec­tor who give or­ga­nized re­tail in their ter­ri­to­ries bench­marks to beat !

The jour­ney this time takes us to LUCKNOW, the cap­i­tal of Ut­tar Pradesh, the largest state of In­dia. Lucknow is among the top cities of In­dia by GDP and is also a cen­tre for re­search and de­vel­op­ment for many ma­jor in­dus­tries. It has also de­vel­oped into an IT hub with many top soft­ware and IT com­pa­nies set­ting up shop in the city.

The city’s rich hand­i­crafts sec­tor ac­counts for 60 per­cent of to­tal ex­ports from the state. Main items in this are mar­ble, hand­i­crafts, art pieces, gems, jew­ellery, tex­tiles, ap­parel, brass prod­ucts, silk, leather goods and glass items.

VM&RD did a walk through the re­tail high streets in the city and met up with some of the large and suc­cess­ful re­tail own­ers, some of whom we have fea­tured in the fol­low­ing spe­cial col­lec­tion of di­verse re­tail cat­e­gories and for­mats from this city.

Each of them have an in­spir­ing story to tell. We hope th­ese sto­ries in­spire you as much as they have in­spired us!
