India’s top retailers are largely lifestyle, clothing and apparel stores
This is followed by grocery stores
Following the past trends and business models in the west retail giants such as Pantaloon, Shoppers’ Stop and Lifestyle are likely to target metros and small cities almost doubling their current number of stores
