Brief Consumer: FRETAIL IN and more

In this briefing:




We visit the large format stores of Future Retail (FRETAIL IN) fbb, Big Bazaar and Big Bazaar Gen Next, along with visiting stores run by Future Lifestyle Fashions (FLFL IN) Brand Factory and Central in Ahmedabad, Gujarat to understand some of the drivers behind SSSG of over 10% over the last 15 consecutive quarters. Our regional checks indicate the large format growth might be maintained in the future driven by loyalty programs like Future Pay. Interestingly the group has resorted to using its stores to mobilise funds for its fixed deposits, which could be a final indication that the planned of deal with Inc (AMZN US) is finally being called off.
