Chapter 4 Address: Bharath Mall , Kodialbail Village, Bejai, Mangalore Big Bazaar is a chain of hypermarkets in India, with more than 100 stores in operation. It is a subsidiary of Pantaloon Retail India Ltd’s, Future Group, and follows the business model of United States-based Wal-Mart. With a slogan of “Is se sasta aur accha kahin nahi! ” (“Nowhere cheaper or better than this! “), Big Bazaar targets itself directly at the average Indian’s love of following the crowd and scrambling for a good discount.

However, the chaos and crowds often make shopping there a challenge.

WEBSITE: bigbazaar. futurebazaar. com Description: The Outlets are spread in 60 locations across the country. And the outlet in Mangalore sells furniture, electronics, clothes, cookware, cosmetics, household items, food, gifts, jewelry and books. Also have special Food Bazaar outlets. Products: Men’s Clothing, Women’s and Kids Clothing, Accessories shopping, Furniture, Home Decor, Electronics and Appliances.

Big Bazaar claims to offer over 1, 70,000 products under one roof.

These include clothes, home furnishings, crockery, books, computer accessories, groceries, etc. Big Bazaar gives a variety of options under the same roof starting from kid’s cloths to electronics items to cosmetics and vegetables. The Big Bazaar is a useful place to find cheap household items, clothes, and food all under one roof. Arrangement: It is helpful for the customers to choose products and browse them because all the products are categorized in a uniform way. The store is neatly arranged and well stocked with various items.

Everything is kept so well arranged that you will never find it difficult to locate anything.

The sales staffs are also very professional and well- trained. If you don’t know where a particular item is and they will be delighted to help you find the place where you can find things of your choice. We spend hours there and felt so nice. You can get almost everything here. 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.

Ambience: There is no specific theme as such. The ambience is more of a generalized form with uniform lighting everywhere. There are continuous announcements going on about the discounts and the offers the outlet provides.

Signage: There are signage’s placed which are helpful especially for the people who are visiting the store for the first time. Billing: The waiting line model in big bazaar is not so efficient compared to spar because the counters are lesser in number and the crowd is huge. Especially during festivals it’s very difficult to get the products billed.

Service: The sales persons in big bazaar are efficient in directing people towards the products. The space is properly utilized.

Pros: • Low prices. • Great sales and promotions. • Wide range of products under the one roof. • Many stores. Cons: • Overcrowded.

• Checkout can be extremely slow. • Poor customer service. • Quality is of average standard. Attractions at BIG BAZAAR what we felt: The biggest attraction as we felt with Big Bazaar is its continuous discount offers. It always says that you cannot find a product cheaper than what they are selling.

We think this is a legitimate claim.

They really sell with less price tag than what we buy sometime from other stores. However, it applies only to general home based products. Another great thing about this market is the shopping experience that one is bound to get here. Everything is there under one roof. This is a novel experience at least in India.

Then the support to the customer is perfect with every section is equipped with a knowledgeable sales man. This market is best for home based general items like FMCG products.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE Mathew Joseph and Manisha GuptaSeptember 2008: The Indian retail sector is booming and modernizing rapidly in line with India’s economic growth. In this review the author talked about the impact of organized retailing on traditional retailing. With the increase in number of various formats for shopping like malls, departmental stores, hypermarkets etc the Indian consumer’s preferences are changing towards and that’s the reason foreign investors like the king of retail Wal-Mart also came into the Indian retail ground in collaboration with Bharti.

There is a huge untapped market is present in India right now which contains a number of opportunities for retailers Sen-2000: Store Image and Consumer Shopping Habits: Indian Context: In India, some empirical studies provide important information about consumer behavior and its responses to the development of organized retail. Economical and social changes are major contributors for a growing fragmentation of consumers into multiple segments with different values and buying priorities.

Consumers have become more pragmatic, educated and demanding, learning how to manage money and time more efficiently. The focus on low prices was gradually replaced by a value for money perspective. The study developed by ETIG (Economic Times Intelligence Group, 2002) confirms these tendencies. Concerning food, the most important attribute mentioned was quality, followed by price.

Indian consumer has different reasons for preferring different store formats, either modern or traditional; Sen (2000) confirms this in the study undertaken in Indian context.

He confirms that in the case of hypermarkets, the main motives for preferences, in decreasing order are low prices, the possibility of buying everything in the same place and the general appearance of the store. Several investigations emphasize the possible coexistence of different store formats (Chandrasekhar, 2001) and others point out the relationship between the type of store and the type of products. These studies show that, while specialized and traditional stores are preferred for fresh products, hypermarkets are preferred for shopping in general, and also for frozen food, groceries and beverages.

The purchase of perishables in hypermarkets is reduced. Radhakrishnan, 2003: Traditional Retailers Perceptions about Organized Retail As already mentioned, organized retail has deeply changed the Indian commercial structure.

However, it is not exclusively responsible, as other changes (economical, social and cultural ones) have occurred simultaneously. Concerning the more direct effects of organized retail on different types of commerce, it is possible to verify that the major impact is felt on traditional retail and, in particular, on the food sector.

The impact of organized retail is also significant on other types of retail, namely toys, stationery goods and household appliances; moreover, it is probable that competition gets more intense in other sectors, such as clothing and furniture. RNCOS (March 15, 2009/24-7 press releases): Increasing trend of Organized retailing will drive the growth of convenience-store industry in the world. By 2011, Asia remains the fastest growing convenience store marketing the world as the major Asian retail markets registered explosive growth in opening up of new convenience store.

Changing consumer preferences, lifestyle and rising income level, which is heavily influenced by economic growth, remains the major driving force for c-store industry in the Asian region.
