A brainchild of Shamsher Singh Hura (Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer) ATJ embarked on its journey in August 2012 when it opened its first door in Puri in Bhubaneshwar. In a short span of time, the concept has become a gateway to East India for international brands willing to set shop in East India. Lauded by Indian as well as international retail fraternity, this one of a kind store concept is an inspiration to many.
With ATJ Janpath as its ‘Gold’ flagship store and the largest one, the chain’s other six outlets (smaller formats called ‘Silver Express’) can be found at Patia and Pal heights (Bhubaneswar), Cuttack, Rourkela, Puri and Ranchi.

The brand mix at these stores would also be according to the local dynamics.
