Soon, retail stores to have designer Khadi corners 6.2.2018 General News
Soon, big retail stores will have dedicated space for selling designer Khadi products, as the government looks to aggressively market the indigenous fabric and popularise it among the masses, a move which is likely to help increase the income of artisans. Addressing a press conference here, Union MSME Minister Giriraj Singh said 800 villages will be converted to Khadi clusters for generating employment, adding that the government was working towards taking Khadi out from Khadi Bhawan and take it to malls and retail chains. "People generally perceive Khadi as not fashionable and something worn by the older generation. Therefore we spoke to 30 retail chains like Big Bazaar, Pantaloons, W, Globus, etc. (in Mumbai). "The outcome is that for the first time you will see exclusive Khadi corners with designer Khadi products in many of these retail chains which will add value. In the process this will also help the artisans," MSME Secretary Arun Kumar Panda said.

Investors cheer as Kishore Biyani gets mojo back 13.9.2017 All Markets Stories
The image of Kishore Biyani, the poster boy for retailing, took a hit when he had to sell his Pantaloon Retail flagship to the Aditya Birla Group in May 2012, to prune debt. With Biyani fighting back, things have changed. The stock of his flagship, Future Retail (FRL), has risen 317 per cent in 2017 so far, to Rs 536 on the BSE. This is the most among retailing companies, indicating Biyani has got back his magic touch as his company adopts an asset-light model. In fact, the share prices of most of his Future Group companies have increased sharply in 2017, by 200-345 per cent. Avenue Supermarts (the D-Mart chain) listed in March and has risen 264.7 per cent to Rs 1,090, from its issue price of Rs 299 a share. FRL, which operates Big Bazaar, Easy Day, fbb, Foodhall and eZone, is now in talks to acquire the Shoppers Stop-backed HyperCity. This could be the third major acquisition by FRL in about two years.
