Bata to open 40 new stores in first quarter

Footwear retail major – Bata India – is planning to open up 40 new retail stores across the country in the first quarter of 2009 in a move to cater to the customers in tier-2 and tier-3 industries.

These stores will be based on the international format of Bata Stores and will be spread across 3,000 square feet.  These stores will also come up in cities like Sonepat, Kota, Jodhpur, Ludhiana, Kakinada, Berampur, Mandya, Gangtok, Hassan, Hubli, Ahmednagar, Nasik, apart from the metros.

Last month we had an exclusive coverage on How Bata India Transformed its retail Business to brace itself to the competition from deep pocket retail players like Reliance Footwear.
