RETAIL YATRA of VM&RD stops over at cities across the length and breadth of our vast country and brings to you successful leaders in the independent retail sector dealing in organised retail in their territories -- benchmarks to beat!
The journey this time takes us to Surat. Surat has emerged as the 10th best city, with high market potential and increasing retail mall supply. Its fast growing industrial sector is giving a boost to retail development. Thanks to increased immigration and improving infrastructure, tier-II and tier-III cities, led by Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and Surat, are set to witness a high level of retail bonanza in the near future.
The textile industry in Surat is mainly engaged in yarn production, weaving, processing as well as embroidery. Surat is well known for its synthetic products market. It is mainly engaged in the production and trading of synthetic textile products.
