V-Mart, the world’s best performing department store chain in 2018 as per data compiled by Bloomberg, launched its 200th store in Mughalsarai, Uttar Pradesh. With this landmark achievement, the company has opened a total of 29 new stores in the current fiscal year so far.
Earlier this month, the company launched its 198 th and 199 th store, both also in UP, at Kannauj and Naubasta near Kanpur, respectively.
Marking the significance of this milestone for the company, Lalit Agarwal, CMD of V-Mart said, “We remain focused on strong execution, riding on the back of our proven cluster-based expansion model. The 200th store is a key milestone for V-Mart, more so, because we have added the last 100 stores in
three years, while we took twelve years for the first 100. This demonstrates accelerated customer demand and V-Mart’s ability to translate that into all-round value creation.”
With the 200th store launch coming just ahead of Christmas and New Year, V-Mart has planned a grand celebration campaign at select locations, starting with Kannauj and Mughalsarai, to bolster the festive spirit among its customers. At both the locations, the company is organizing a ‘Mela’ in large open fairgrounds, inviting the general public to enjoy an eclectic mix of food, fun and entertainment.
