INTRODUCTION TO RETAIL INDUSTRY

Retail is India’s largest industry, accounting for over 10 per cent of the country’s GDP and
around eight per cent of the employment. Retail industry in India is at the crossroads. It has
emerged as one of the most dynamic and fast paced industries with several players entering the
market. But because of the heavy initial investments required, break even is difficult to achieve
and many of these players have not tasted success so far. However, the future is promising; the
market is growing, government policies are becoming more favourable and emerging
technologies are facilitating operations. Retailing in India is gradually inching its way toward
becoming the next boom industry. The whole concept of shopping has altered in terms of format
and consumer buying behaviour, ushering in a revolution in shopping in India. Modern retail has
entered India as seen in

Sprawling shopping centres, multi-storied malls and huge complexes offer shopping,
entertainment and food all under one roof. The Indian retailing sector is at an inflexion point
where the growth of organized retailing and growth in the consumption by the Indian population
is going to take a higher growth trajectory.
The Indian population is witnessing a significant change in its demographics. A large young
working population with median age of 24 years, nuclear families in urban areas, along with
increasing working-women population and emerging opportunities in the services sector are
going to be the key growth drivers of the organized retail sector in India.

Retailing is the final step in the distribution of merchandise - the last link in the Supply Chain -
connecting the bulk producers of commodities to the final consumers. Retailing covers diverse
products such as foot apparels, consumer goods, financial services and leisure.

A retailer, typically, is someone who does not effect any significant change in the product execs
breaking the bulk. He/ She are also the final stock point who makes products or services
available to the consumer whenever require. Hence, the value proposition a retailer offers to a
consumer is easy availabilities of the desired product in the desired sizes at the desired times.

In the developed countries, the retail industry has developed into a full-fledged industry where
more than three-fourths of the total retail trade is done by the organized sector. Huge retail
chains like Wal-Mart, Carr four Group, Sears, K-Mart, McDonalds, etc. have now replaced the
individual small stores. Large retail formats, with high quality ambiance and courteous.

Retailing is the interface between the producer and the individual consumer buying for personal
consumption. This excludes direct interface between the manufacturer and institutional buyers
such as the government and other bulk customers. A retailer is one who stocks the producer’s
goods and is involved in the act of selling it to the individual consumer, at a margin of profit. As

Such, retailing is the last link that connects the individual consumer with the manufacturing and
distribution chain.

Retailing is more than selling goods:


Retailing consists of the sale of goods or merchandise, from a fixed location such as a
department store or kiosk, in small or individual lots for direct consumption by the purchaser.
Retailing is a well recognized business function which compromises making available desired
product in the desired quantity at the desired time. This creates a time, place and form utility for
the consumer. The success of retailing is highly dependent on an efficient supply chain
management. A well-developed supply chain reduces wastages and transaction cost thereby
reducing the cost of inventories to be maintained by the producers and the traders. A reduction in
the cost of inventory management leads to a reduction in the final price to the consumer.
Retailing has been identified as a thrust area for promotion of textiles, processed foods,
agricultural and horticultural produce. Retail Sector can be divided into organized and
unorganized sectors.

Evaluation of Organized Retailing:

American mass retailing began in the late 1800s with Montgomery Ward marketing its products
through general merchandise mail order catalogs, which was very effective at that time for
reaching a largely rural society.

In the 1940s, the population began its movement to the suburbs as the economy shifted from an
agricultural base to an industrialized nation. The first shopping center was opened, which would
eventually be a significant factor in the decline of downtown Retailing in the 1960s and 70s. JC
Penney and Sears began their national mass retailing expansion, and the use of credit cards as
Major retail chains began.

The 1950s witnessed the reaffirmation of the traditional family. The first planned mall and
franchised food restaurant opened. As people continued to flock to the suburbs, the downtown
areas began to decline. Larger suburban malls were created and anchored by traditional
downtown department store merchants. Freeways were expanded and the sales of private
automobiles grew, giving the consumer a wider accessible area in which to shop. Discounters
were born, Korvetta being one of the firsts.

The 1960s witnessed the growth of enclosed shopping centres, with department stores anchors
and specialty retail chains. The baby boomers were teenagers at this point, leading to the growth
of juniors-oriented stores and vendors. Women became targets not just as mothers or wives as
they entered the workforce and consumers became more demanding in their expectation of
quality and service.

In the 1970s, promotional pricing started to pick up the department stores as off-price retailer
emerged. The growth of retail space slowed, as sales increase came at the expense of
competition, not of market growth. This competitive market led to the underperformance of
several retailers as gross margins experienced downtown pressure from increased competition.
Retailers in large upscale markets recognized the time shortage created by dual-career families
and began to offer more services to assist in saving time.

The 1980s witnessed the growth of off price retailing as a distinct, enduring retail format.
Retailers began to drop low profit lines. Acquisitions and mergers were actively utilized as
growth strategies, private brands were redeveloped to enhance uniqueness and margins and
offshore sourcing was developed to compensate for margins

Broadly the organized retail sector can be divided into two segments, In-Store Retailers, who
operate fixed point-of-sale locations, located and designed to attract a high volume of walk-in
customers, and the non-store retailers, who reach out to the customers at their homes or offices.

It was only in the year 2000 that the economists put a figure to it: Rs.400, 000crore (1crore = 10
million) which is expected to develop to around Rs.800, 000crore by the year 2005 – an annual
increase of 20 per cent. Retailing in India is unorganized with poor supply chain management
perspective. According to a recent survey by some of the retail consulting bodies, an
overwhelming proportion of the Rs.400, 000crore retail markets are UNORGANISED. In fact,
only a Rs. 20,000crore segment of the market is organized. As much as 96 per cent of the 5
million-plus outlets are smaller than 500 square feet area. This means that India per capita
retailing space is about 2 square feet (compared to 16 square feet in the United States). India's
per capita retailing space is thus the lowest in the world (source: KSA Technopak (I) Pvt Ltd, the
India operation of the US-based Kurt Salmon Associates).

Currently the retail landscape is filled with Supermarket chains with over 9000 outlets all over
the country to increase to around 15000 by the 2015. The success of a couple of hyper mart’s
indicating the evolution of hypermarkets in the country prominent among them is Giant, Metro,
Big Bazaar models. While the average bill value at a supermarket is in the range of Rs.300 per
bill, the average bill amount at a Hypermarket is in the range of Rs.750-1000, indicating that the
model is in tune with the global models where the average spend is increasing with the shopping
experience.

Factors Affecting Retailing in India:


Various factors affect retailing in India. However, if one were to Single out the single biggest
different in the development of organized retailing in India, it would undoubtly be the cost of
real estate. The high cost of real estate in India, in spite of the fact that the per capital income is
one of the lowest in the world, makes the country a land of contradictions. In fact so exorbitant is
the cost of property in almost every town of India that it makes the very concept of organized
retailing nonviable. Obsolete rental laws have compounded the situation even further and unless
immediate and serious steps are initiated in this direction it would be fairly long before the
benefits of this concept reach the public at large.

The rampant corruption &poor implantations of taxation laws also permit a majority of the
unorganized retail fraternity with substantially large turnover to avoid paying full taxes.

There are no single factors but numerous factors which have prevented organized retailing from
taking off as it should have in India. Some of the leading factors that have restricted this growth
are as follows.

• High real estate costs


• Obsolete rental laws
• Lack of finance options
• High interest costs
• Unplanned cities
• Rampant corruption
• Exorbitant electricity costs
Company profile of Big Bazaar:

"We have a store opening virtually every fortnight; I have lost


count now of how many I have opened.”
(Kishore Biyani)

Big Bazaar is both big and a bazaar. It is unlike, say, a Wal-Mart or even a Food world. Big
Bazaar is almost an air-conditioned version of any Indian bazaar. It is a slightly orderly and
organized version of, say Chick pet for Bangalore guys or Dadar for Mumbaiites. There is a huge
crowd which can move in almost any direction. You can buy anything (pretty much everything is
available at Big Bazaar). It is not a place where you can browse through at leisure and pick up a
few things here and there. This is a place if you are serious about your shopping. And the worst
part is at the checkout counter, where the line can stretch as much as a line for a famous Ganpati
Pandal or a cricket match. Parking is a pain too.

But, the place ticks. In Hyderabad, Bangalore, NCR regions etc the outlets don’t have a place for
customers to stand esp. on weekends. Customers wait outside it some before it opens in the
morning. Bombay is slightly better. Big Bazaar offers good prices-Really good prices. Prices that
tempt. Apart from simple price chopping, there are deals (2 for the price of 1 or prices reduced
on a combination etc). The perception of Big Bazaar is that it facilitates some serious savings on
grocery shopping. And it works. And make no mistake; it attracts the well heeled as much as it
attracts Raju from across the street. That has worked for Big Bazaar is that it has been able to
connect with the customers in the right manner. They had filled a need gap which was there in
the market. Apart from that, their competence in providing products at lowest prices and great
quality in an ambience much better than what the customers were used to, has also contributed to
their success.

The focus is on continuing to provide very high ‘value for money’ to customers by providing
exciting offers throughout the year. It will be facilitated by constantly working on its buying and
supply chain efficiencies. Having already achieved economies of scale and size, they intend to
better their gains by opening new stores regularly.

One of the key philosophies of Mr Kishore Biyani that is highly followed is ‘Rewrite rules,
retain values.’ In essence, it means they don’t take anything as fixed. They are constantly on the
lookout for finding new ways and means to improve the current state of affairs. Thus, innovation
is a very important aspect of their working strategy. The other very important philosophy is that
of Indianness. All their concepts and formats as well as the way they go about things are very
Indian. The way Big Bazaar is designed and the way the whole concept has developed reflects a
sense of Indianness.

This is a well articulated print advertisement campaign for Big Bazaar to highlight their unique
marketing strength, ‘extreme low price’. However, even before this idea has been exercised to
highlight a product by placing it in a stark different environment. Nevertheless, this
advertisement campaign is very well crafted out. Further, the ad is not at all confusing and it
straight way conveys the message without losing focus.

Pantaloon Retail (India) Limited, is India's leading retail company with presence across multiple
lines of businesses. The company owns and manages multiple retail formats that cater to a wide
cross-section of the Indian society and is able to capture almost the entire consumption basket of
the Indian consumer. Headquartered in Mumbai (Bombay), the company operates through 4
million square feet of retail space, has over 140 stores across 32 cities in India and employs over
14,000 people. The company registered a turnover of Rs 2019 crore for FY 2005-06.

Pantaloon Retail forayed into modern retail in 1997 with the launching of fashion retail chain,
Pantaloons in Kolkata. In 2001, it launched Big Bazaar, a hypermarket chain that combines the
look and feel of Indian bazaars, with aspects of modern retail, like choice, convenience and
hygiene. This was followed by Food Bazaar, food and grocery chain and launch Central, a first
of its kind seamless mall located in the heart of major Indian cities. Some of its other formats
include, Collection i (home improvement products), E-Zone (consumer electronics), Depot
(books, music, gifts and stationary), all (fashion apparel for plus-size individuals), Shoe Factory
(footwear) and Blue Sky (fashion accessories). It has recently launched its e retailing venture,

The group's subsidiary companies include, Home Solutions Retail India Ltd, Pantaloon
Industries Ltd, Galaxy Entertainment and Indus League Clothing. The group also has joint
venture companies with a number of partners including French retailer Etam group, Lee Cooper,
Manipal Healthcare, Talwalkar's, Gini & Jony and Liberty Shoes. Planet Retail, a group
company owns the franchisee of international brands like Marks & Spencer, Debenhams, Next
and Guess in India.

Opportunities:

1 .There remains a large future scope for the retail industry in India, as incomes rise and

Threats

1. Competition from current Indian retail companies like Shoppers Stop, Trent, Lifestyle, Easy
day and Vishal retail ltd

target etc.

3 .High taxes in India suppress consumption, smaller specialty shops and informal shops are
sometimes able to avoid taxes, offering lower total prices to customers. Even because they are
not earning that much of profits compare to these big companies and they are not paying the
taxes.

Literature review: (Sales review)

Big Bazaar review in india

There was a time not so long ago that large department stores were a completely foreign concept
in India -- but not anymore. The Big Bazaar is one such department store to have set up shop
across the country. Since its first outlet opened in Kolkata in late 2001, the Big Bazaar has
spread to towns and cities at an alarming rate.

These multi-level shopping Mecca’s stock everything from food to fridges, and cookware to
clothes. However, the Big Bazaar isn't your ordinary department store. It's been especially
designed to appeal to the Indian consumer. You may be thinking, what does that mean? In short,
organized chaos.

With a slogan of "Is se sasta aur accha kahin nahi!" ("Nowhere cheaper or better than this!"),
the Big Bazaar targets itself directly at the average Indian's love of following the crowd and
scrambling for a good discount.

You won't find neatly ordered aisles at the Big Bazaar. Instead, stores are laid out to replicate a
market environment, with items all thrown in together. Promotions such as "Sabse Saste Teen
Din" (Cheapest Three Days) and "Purana Do, Naya Lo" (Give Old, Take New) result in
shoppers flooding the stores, to the point that some stores have become so overcrowded they've
had to close.

If you visit the Big Bazaar in the daytime during the week, it is possible to have a deceptively
pleasant and hassle free shopping experience.

However, don't make the mistake of going there during a sale, on holidays, evenings, or on
Sunday. When I did this, I had to wait for almost an hour just to be served at the checkout.
Forget about getting the all items I wanted, I was happy to get out of there in one piece!

I've also found that the full price is all too often charged on sale items, so do check your receipt
to make sure that discounts have been properly recorded.

Big Bazaar expects 20% surge in I-Day sale

Big Bazaar's five-day Independence Day sale has done ‘quite well' across all its formats,
according to sources in the company.

“Overall we have done well, contrary to the fear of impact of inflation and consumers not
spending. For instance, on the last day (August 15), these two formats (Big Bazaar and Food
Bazaar) recorded sales of over Rs 100 crore,”
Big Bazaar expected a 20 per cent hike in Mahabachat sales over the same period last year
and closed with sales of Rs 300-400 crore.

This is the fifth edition of ‘Mahabachat', a five-day annual shopping event across 210 stores of
Big Bazaar and Food Bazaar.

Big bazaar maha bacchat 2010

Big Bazaar has come up with the greatest savings of this year. Starting from 11th August, the
fight against price rise led by Big Bazaar will continue up to 15th August, 2010. All the Big
Bazaar stores across India seem to be glorifying in this Maha Bachat season.

You can also avail the ‘Maha Bachat Sale’ online at www.bigbazaar.com. Even shopping
through SMS can be done. Send “BB MB” to 53636 or Call at 1800-209-2255 to avail their
offers.

Some exclusive offers include 81 cm LCD TV at Rs. 19,990 and 20% off on Mobile Phones.
You can also get huge benefits at Food Bazaar.

Laptops are available from Rs. 14,990 compared to the normal Rs. 17,990 Market Price.
Whether it be Electronics goods, Food Stuffs, Fashion, Mobiles, Home Needs or Furniture, Big
Bazaar does not leave any section out of this Maha Bachat Sale.

So, get ready for those 5 Days. You would never like to miss those goodies, at such cheap prices.

Research Design

DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH:- Descriptive research includes surveys and facts findings


enquiries of different kinds. The major purpose of Descriptive research is the description of the
state of affairs, as it exists at present. It provides the data about the population or universe being
studied. Descriptive research is used when the objective is to provide a systematic description
that is as factual as accurate possible. In this project we have analysed the catchment area of big
Bazaar and comparison of Big Bazaar with its competitors. Therefore my research is descriptive.

Details of research:

Method Used: Survey method

Type Of survey: Interview

Instrument used: Questionnaire


Sample size: 521(In store) and 475 (out of the store)

Data used: Both Primary & Secondary

SAMPLE AREA:- Since the research is on Retail Industry so the sample area that
is covered is as follows-

AREA: – In store customers.

SAMPLE DESIGN:- Simple random method

SOURCES OF DATA COLLECTION:- Data collected in this project is


collected from primary source which is as follows-

PRIMARY DATA: - Interview, Questionnaire

SECONDARY DATA: - Internet, Magazines, Books, News Paper etc

Analysis and interpretation


Data analysis is the most indispensible and critical part of research. Data analyses were done by
the help of statistical tools so that discrepancies could be eliminated. The data was condensed
into manageable groups and tables for further analysis. The in store data interpretation of
“catchment area analysis and customer profiling” reveals the following results:-

1. Customers coming to Big Bazaar where from:-

Finding: - 58% customers are coming from Jalandhar as compared to the 13% from Phagwara
which is just 8km’s away from the store.

14% customers coming to the store are from the rest of Punjab. These customers include the
roadway crowd presenting the feasibility of our location as our store is situated on the main
national highway no 1, also known as Grand trunk road.

13% from Phagwara is concern for us, for this purpose we need to enhance our promotional
activity in Phagwara, so that we can receive maximum percentage from this area.

2. Age group of people coming to Big Bazaar:-

India’s largest university (LPU) which is just 3-4 kms away from store.

70% customers coming to the store are falling in 18 to 35 year age group.

Interpretation:-

Still kirana is the main shopping place for Indian customers, as 40% customers shop at kirana
stores. This is because of the unorganised which is highly organised in the minds of customers
because of its proximity, credit facilities etc customers are going towards these stores.

27% customers shop monthly grocery at easy day, the chief competitor of our store.

Only 18% customers are going towards the first entrant in Jalandhar the vishal mega mart dying
for its survival.

Interpretation:-

35% customers are saying that Easy day is better in terms of price as compared to 24% in Big
Bazaar.

In all other attributes like product quality, service quality, staff behaviour, staff knowledge, store
ambience, ease of shopping, overall shopping experience Big Bazaar leads the table.

We should maintain this and also we should keep our prices equivalent to easy day.
Recommendations and limitations

1. Increase the variety of apparels.


2. Introduce some branded apparels as 70% people coming to our store are in 18 to 35 year
age group.
3. Increase the variety of products in every section excluding food bazaar of big bazaar,
4. Attract low level customers by providing them certain benefits like by keeping products
of lower price not lower quality,
5. Keep employees motivated, so that they can put their 100% .
6. Install magazine stall inside the store, near exit.
7. We should keep books like novels, stories, rhymes etc in our store.
8. We should keep laptops and desktops in our store.

10. Maintain proper display to create impulse. (It is assumed that near about 70% sales comes
from impulse marketing and if proper display is not maintained impulse cannot be created).

11. Some English training for the sales executives would help them to deliver services to
English speaking customers, like NRIs
12. Promote your private labels.

13. Keep your own coffee shop in store.

14. Trim down the parking fee, as our store is located outside of city so customers coming to
store are spending near about 100 Rupees on petrol and diesel ,and he has to pay extra money in
terms of parking fee. Second case is that our competitor Easy day being in the heart of city is
charging just 5 Rs, therefore we need to do the same.
Limitations of research:

➢ Time was the major constraint, which prevented me to put in more effort.

➢ Some of the respondents were not ready to fill the questionnaire.

➢ Not all the respondents were cooperative thus it was difficult to convince them for filling up
the questionnaire.

➢ Some of the respondents might have got biased while filling up the questionnaire.

The respondents are free from all barriers so he/she can give his/her opinion
which may not be true in many occasions. We made our best efforts in conducting the
research but might have lacked somewhere because of lack of expertise in conducting such
survey based researches.

Comparison between
Big Bazaar and Easyday

2. Urban estate phase-1

3. GTB Nagar Jalandhar

Research Methodology:-

The methodology used in performing and analysing this part of survey is same
as above. Here also the questionnaires were filled outside the store and from
those customers who were coming out from store only, in order to avoid any
contamination of valuable data.

Details of research
Sample size: 187

Method Used: Survey method

Type Of survey: Interview

Instrument used: Questionnaire

Survey area: Easy Day (vassal tower) Jalandhar


Data Analysis

The results of this part of research are as follows:

Q.No:1:- Age group of respondent:

Interpretation:

Same result was found in Easy day as major portions i.e. 71% of pie were in 18-35 year age
group.

Only 14% customers coming to the store are in 36-40 year age group.

The data provided us that the young people are more eager to go for shopping, because of
standardised and systematic appeal of organised retailing. This also shows us that the
opportunities and expectations of organised retailers will keep growing in Jalandhar as it was
found in the survey that maximum percentage of both the masses and classes are interested in
purchasing goods from organised retailers.

2: Address of the respondent:

Interpretation:

The store being in the heart of city, it attracts maximum percentage i.e. 88% of customers from
Jalandhar.
2% from out of Punjab i.e includes the people who are doing job in Jalandhar.

6% customers from Rest of Punjab.i.e from Nawasher, Gurdaspur, Hosharpur, etc

3: Family size of customer.

Average family size of customers is 4-5.

4: Profession of customer:
Interpretation:

7% customers are doing govt.jobs, it indicates that customers who are doing govt job are not
coming organised retailers, as it was also found in case of Big Bazaar and Vishal that only 7-9%
customers coming to these organised retailers are doing govt job. The fact behind this may be
that govt employees get salary after completion of month, till that they are purchasing goods
from kirana stores on credit. Second point may be the salary that govt employees are getting
lesser amount in terms of salary as compared to pvt.and business persons. Third point is that the
organised sector is just 6-7 % in India , hence the people are less aware about this industry.

In order to attract this part of market organised retailers need to enhance their image, loyalty by
promotional campaigns and also some strategies should be used at the end of month so that the
share of this part may increase.

43 % are doing private jobs.

5: Qualification of respondent/customer:

Interpretation:

97% customers were literate.

6: Are you aware that Big bazaar has opened in Jalandhar?

Interpretation:

Only 24% customers do not know Big Bazaar has opened in Jalandhar.
We should increase our promotional activities so that at least whole Jalandhar city can speak
about Big Bazaar or the percentage can increase to 90%.

7: Have you been to Big Bazaar?

Interpretation:

61% customers responded that we had not been to Big Bazaar.

While as 38% responded that we had been to Big Bazaar.

Customers were enquired about this why you are not going to Big Bazaar, maximum times the
answer was that it is far away from the city.

7: If yes, than how would you rate it on a scale of 5:

Interpretation:

31% respondents reported that it is good.

2% provided that it is very good.

8: Which store do you think is better in following attributes?

experiences

Interpretation:-

23% customers responded Easy day is better in prices, as compared to meagre 1% of Big Bazaar.

Service quality, staff behaviour and also somewhat in case of overall shopping experience the
response given was same with Easy day. But about product quality and ease of shopping
customers exercised their vote towards easyday.

In case of staff knowledge, store ambience and overall shopping experience Big Bazaar leads
the table. Therefore in order to get the leading edge we need to move ahead from easy day in
prices, quality, services, staff behaviour etc so that we can gain maximum market share.

1. Age group of customers:-

Interpretation:
31% people are in 18-25 year age group.
Only 6% are in 41-50 year age group.
The case here is same as above, as the maximum percentage of chart is occupied by
people who are in age group 18-35.Therefore it again clarifies that mostly young people
are going for shopping to these retail stores.

Interpretation:-
As we are talking of convenience stores, so they are receiving the 98% of customers from
Jalandhar.
1% each from rest of Punjab and out of Punjab these include the labourers, rented people
which are doing job in these localities.
3: Family size of respondents:

Interpretation:

Average family size of respondents is 4-5 members.

Therefore keeping in view the average family size, organised retailers can provide offers
etc and can also keep inventory keeping in view the average size of the family.

4: Profession of customers:
Interpretation:

18% of pie consists of students.


35% business people,
Here again the percentage of Govt.Job doing people is just 9%, same like in Big Bazaar,
Vishal, and Easyday. As i have already mentioned that this part of the market is concern

Average monthly spending is 3500 rupees.

8% spend below 2000 on grocery per month, this includes customers which are 1 to 3 members
in their family as above it is mentioned that 14% customers have 3 members in their families.

month.

Interpretation:

Near about 85% customers purchase monthly grocery from easy day convenience stores.

Only 6% purchase monthly grocery from Easy day and Big Bazaar.

8:Are you aware that Big Bazaar has opened in Jalandhar?

Interpretation:

86 % responded that we know Big Bazaar has opened in Jalandhar, and only 13% did not.

Interpretation:

48% customers responded that we had not been to Big Bazaar. To attract this portion of map we
