Vadodara, May 16: Pantaloon Retail (India) Limited, a future group venture, will make an investment of more than Rs 1500 crore for opening more than 110 big bazar hypermarkets in various cities across the country, Anand Adukia, Zonal Chief of the company said on Friday.
“With this launch, Big Bazar is now present in all the four major cities of Ahmedabad (five stores), Anand, Surat, Rajkot and Vadodara (one each) while the count for all India goes upto 90 stores in 55 cities in the country,” Adukia told reporters, after opening its ninth store in the city today.
The sprawling three floors of Vadodara Big Bazar houses over 1.6 lakh products and is a destination store to cater to every single household needs of a family, he said.
“We are a consumer-driven company and we ensure that all our Big Bazar stores fulfill the needs of the entire household under one roof,”Adukia said.
This store also houses, ‘Navras’, a national brand known for fine 22 carat pure gold and diamond jewellery.
The company intends to open one more store in Vadodara, and Ahmedabad in next couple of months along with Jamnagar, Bhavnagar and Vapi among others, Adukia added.
Besides, the company also intends to open 11 more stores in Gujarat later this year, he said adding, with this, the company has made a total investment of Rs 500 crore in the state.

The company is a leading retailer with a turn over of over Rs 3350 crores and is targetting 50 per cent growth this year, Adukia added.
The hype about Big Bazaar in Kerala
Big Bazaar has recently opened two of their stores in Kerala - in Thrissur and in Thiruvananthapuram (The one you see in the pic is of their Thrissur shop). I went to their Thrissur shop yesterday evening with my friends. It’s really a BIG bazaar and people are flocking into the shop even at 9 PM, the time of closing. Everybody in the town is talking about Big Bazaar these days.
The people behind Big Bazaar says that the consumer cannot find discounted products like they offer, anywhere else. But apart from the centrally air-conditioned, full of colorful posters, nicely designed shop that has good looking sales boys and girls and announcements in English and Malayalam in between, are they really worth the hype that they are being talked about?
I went to check out their mens wear section and they had a brand name that we never heard before - Knighthood. I couldn’t find much variety and the kind of stuff they had it in there was sort of cheap, but even the shirts worth Rs. 499 and above (It is interesting to see that the Bata price is now being adopted by all companies - i.e. Rs. 199.99 instead of Rs. 200, Rs. 499.99 instead of Rs. 500 etc) were very poor in quality compared to the branded shirts. They also have popular branded names like Levis, but interestingly the branded stuff has no reduction in price.
Checkout their footwear section and you would find many chappals and shoes (without any known brand names) for cheap price. But is it cheaper than what you would find in a nearby footwear shop made by local cobblers? I doubt it.
Earlier, a friend went to their furniture section and liked a dinner table set and when he asked, they said the item was sold. The other ‘not sold’ items were of cheaper quality but with a not-so-cheap price and he didn’t buy anything.
Another friend who is a whole-sale businessman in the Rice Bazaar in Thrissur checked out the price of packaged rice and told me that each packet of 1 KG charges atleast Rs. 3 extra compared to the market price.
Finally, before we left the place I thought of buying something and I bought some shaving accessories. Only when I went to the bill counter I realized that it didn’t have any discounts. I asked the cashier and he said only certain items have discounts like apparel, footwear, umbrellas etc (That means the brand names that we never heard of).
Usually I buy everything from the nearby Margin Free Super Market which is now in almost all districts in Kerala (beware of the fraud people who put “Margin-Free Supermarket” boards though). They offer very good discounts on almost everything. I just wonder why don’t we promote such supermarkets with some added glamour and marketing tricks (because that’s what attracting people more these days than price) than embracing such huge shopping malls which is only about the glamour and nothing else? Perhaps they can rename themselves to “Cool Mart”, “Whole Mart” etc than “Margin-Free Super Market” to attract the crowds.
