The flagship stores established by a leading company in India has announced its partnership with ETP International to implement the ETP V5.2 retail solution for their chain of stores. The chain of flagship stores is aligned with the mindset of the “now generation”, offering contemporary fashion wear for the youth.
The parent company ranks among India’s largest integrated manufacturing, marketing and retailing organisations, with a turnover exceeding USD 70 million. It possess the state-of-the-art garment-manufacturing units for different product groups. In 1987, the company introduced a new category of youth apparel which houses a range of casual wear for today’s youth – jeans wear, street wears, sports wear, etc.
The apparel store began with a single basement outlet on Bangalore’s Residency Road. In the late `80s, it worked on the assumption that street fashion in the youth segment, like in the Western countries, would be the growth area for the branded apparel industry.
After its successful launch, the apparel brand was extended to kidswear for the 2–12 year age group. Partnerships with Walt Disney and Warner under the retail umbrella of Toonworld in 2002 made the company stronger and unique. It has the largest single collection. of Toon character merchandise under one roof. With the 90s and the emergence of a bold, new generation, the company turned image-maker and seized the moment to create a standalone identity. The popularity and dominance of these brands is explained by the company’s core strengths in distribution, merchandising and image creation – every season.
“Adding a household brand like this apparel company to our portfolio of customers is a great moment for ETP International. We are heartened that even an established household brand sees the need for a robust retail management system to complement their operations and growth strategies. The fact that the ETP V5.2 retail solution has been selected over others adds to our conviction that the solution is one that is well-received and preferred by growth-oriented retailers,” commented Mr Naresh Ahuja.
With ETP V5.2 retail solution, the apparel chain will see returns on their investment with improved customer service levels, better management of their loyalty programmes, effective integration of business process and efficient deployment of resources.
