  • 6. Introduction What is Retail? The word ‘Retail’ is derived from the French word ‘Retailer’ meaning ‘to cut a piece off’ or ‘to break bulk’. In simple terms it involves activities whereby product or services are sold to final consumers in small quantities. Although retailing in its various formats has been around our country for many decades, it has been confined for a long time to family owned corner shops. Englishmen are great soccer enthusiasts, and they strongly think that one should never give Indians a corner. It stems from the belief that, if you give an Indian a corner he would end up setting a shop. That is how great Indians Retail management skill is considered. Brief Introduction about Reliance in Retail sector The Retail industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world which understands the current market trend and their demand. In comparison to the world Retail markets Indian Retail market is in the nascent stage which is yet to have many folds to reach and compete with the other world standard market. Indian market is well protected market with limited inflow and outflows that is stringent policies on imports and exports. Reliance Retail, Ltd. is a subsidiary company of Reliance Industries.

Benefits of Retailing Retailing is good for national economics where it has positive influence on influence on inflation and product availability.

  • 11. About the Founder & Company’s Establishment DHIRAJLAL HIRACHAND AMBANI Born December 28, 1932 Died July 6, 2002 (aged 69) Mumbai, India. Nationality Indian Occupation Business tycoon, chairman of Reliance Industry. Net worth US $6.10 billion Religion Hindu Spouse(s) Kokilaben Ambani Children Mukesh Ambani, Anil Ambani (12)
  • 12. Dhirajlal Hirachand Ambani, also known as Dhirubhai, 28 December 1932, - 6 July 2002, was an Indian rag to riches business tycoon who founded Reliance Industry with his cousin. Ambani took his company (Reliance) public in 1977, and by 2007 the combined fortune of the family (sons Mukesh and Anil) was 60 billion dollars, making the Ambani’s the second richest family in the world, next to the Walton family. Dhirubhai has been one among the select Forbes billionaires and has also figured in the Sunday Times list of top 50 businessmen in Asia. Dhirubhai started off as a small time worker with Arab merchants in the 1950s and moved to Mumbai in 1958 to start his own business in spices. After making modest profits, he moved into textiles and opened his expansions and successes. Reliance, acknowledge as one of the best-run companies in the world has various sectors like petrochemicals, textiles and is involved in the production of crude oil and gas, to polyester and polymer products. The companies’ refinery at Jamnagar accounts for over 25% of India’s total refining capacity and their plant at Hazira is the biggest chemical complex in India. The company has further diversified into Telecom, Insurance and Internet Businesses, the Power Sector and so on. Now the Reliance group with over 85,000 employees provides almost 5% of the Central Government’s total revenue. In 1986 after a heart attack he has handed over his empire to his two sons Anil and Mukesh. His sons are carrying on the successful tradition of their father. (Reference citation from 2). (13)
  • 13. About The Mission, Vision & Objective of the Company Mission Reliance Retail plans to 3,000-4,000 stores in 3-4 yrs. The dream project of Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, Reliance Retail has all the potential to become the market leader in this sector. Vision Vision With a vision to generate inclusive growth and prosperity for farmers, vendor partners, small shopkeepers and consumers, Reliance Retail Limited (RRL), a subsidiary of RIL, was set up to lead Reliance Group’s foray into organized Retail. Objectives of the company • To attain global best practices and become a world-class utility. • To provide uninterrupted, affordable, quality, reliable and clean power to millions of customers. • To achieve excellence in service, quality, reliability, safety and customer care. • To work with vigor, dedication and innovation, with total customer care as the ultimate goal. • To consistently achieve high growth with the highest levels of productivity. (14)
  • 14. Position/Stage in the Life Cycle The concept of product life cycle is also applicable to Retail organizations. This is because Retail organizations pass through identifiable stages of innovation, development, maturity and decline. This is what is commonly termed as the Retail life cycle. Attributes and strategies change as institutions mature. The ‘Retail Life Cycle’ is a theory about the change through time of the retailing outlets. It is claimed that the Retail institutions show an s-shaped development through their economic life. The s-shaped development curve has been classified into four main phases: Innovation A new organization is born; it improves the convenience or creates other advantages to the final customers that differ sharply from those offered by other retailers. This is the stage of innovation, where the organization has a few competitors. Since it is a new concept, the rate of growth is fairly rapid and the management fine tunes its strategy through experimentation. Levels of profitability are moderate and this stage can last up to five years depending on the organization. Accelerated Growth The Retail organization faces rapid increases in sales. As the organization moves to stage two of growth, which is the stage of development, a few competitors emerge. Since the company has been in the market for a while, it is now in a position to pre-empt the market by establishing a position of leadership. Since growth is imperative, the investment level is also high, as is the profitability. Investment is largely in systems and processes. This stage can last from five to eight years. However, towards the end of this phase, cost pressures tend to appear. (15)
  • 15. Maturity The organization still grows but competitive pressures are felt acutely from newer forms of retailing that tend to arise. Thus, the growth rate tends to decrease. Gradually as markets, become more competitive and direct competition increases, the rate of growth slows down and profits also start declining. This is the time when the Retail organization needs to rethink its strategy and reposition itself in the market. A change may occur not only in the format but also in the merchandise mix offered. Decline The Retail organization loses its competitive edge and there is a decline. In this stage, the organization needs to decide if it is still going to continue in the market. The rate of growth is negative, profitability declines further and overheads are high. The Retail business in India has only recently seen the emergence of organized, corporate activity. Traditionally, most of the Retail business in India has been small owner managed business. It is difficult to put down a Retail organization, which has passed through all the four stages of the Retail life cycle. In the private sector, till a few years ago, most cities in India had a few independent retailers. For example, Mumbai had stores like Akbarally’s., Premsons, Amarsons and Benzer. Then Shopper’s Stop opened its first outlet in Mumbai in 1991.The store initially offered apparel, imitation jewelry cosmetics and perfumes and home fashions. It also had a customer loyalty program in place, which many stores at that time did not offer. The store enjoyed an enviable position for a while. However, with the change in customer expectations and increased competition in the form of other department stores like Globus, Eastside, Lifestyle, etc. and the rise of specialty stores, the company has been forced to (16)
  • 16. rethink its product offering. It now not only stocks apparel, jewelry, cosmetics etc. that it earlier stocked but has also acquired the book store chain – Crosswords. Cross words counters have been added to many of the existing stores. The store in Andheri (Mumbai) also houses Planet M, music Retail chain and a small coffee shop. In May 2008, the company embarked upon a major exercise in terms of repositioning of the store, which involved among other things, a change in the logo. It is necessary to keep in mind that a retailer need not always move from maturity to decline. By reworking the marketing strategy or by changing the product or service offering, a retailer may succeed in moving back to the growth phase after reaching a stage of maturity with a certain format and a certain mix of products. (Reference citation from 3) (17)

  • 55. Marketing Strategies 1. Push Strategies: - Push marketing is a promotional strategy where businesses attempt to take their products to the customers. The term push stems from the idea that marketers are attempting to push their products at consumers. Common sales tactics include trying to sell merchandise directly to customers via company showrooms and negotiating with retailers to sell their products for them, or set up point-of-sale displays. Often, these retailers will receive special sales incentives in exchange for this increased visibility. "Taking the product to the customer" (Reference citation from 5, 6, & 7) 2. Pull Strategies: - Pull marketing, on the other hand, takes the opposite approach. The goal of pull marketing is to get the customers to come to you, hence the term pull, where marketers are attempting to pull customers in. Common sales tactics used for pull marketing include mass media promotions, word-of-mouth referrals and advertised sales promotions. From a business perspective, pull marketing attempts to create brand loyalty and keep customers coming back, whereas push marketing is more concerned with short-term sales. "Getting the customer to come to you” (Reference citation from 5,6, & 7) (56)

  • 79. Challenges of Retail There are multiple problems in Retail market. Few of the major problems are as follow:- Multiple MRP Issues Same product is available in different sizes with different prices and different offers, so sometimes it becomes a problem when POS (point of Sales) fails to detect some product with particular off or any associated offer. Stock (or Product) Unavailability Some offer is given in the pamphlets at lower price is not available in the store which bring a feeling of un-satisfaction to the customers. Product Location, which leads to customers to search a lot and in case if he/she does not finds it then they either ask the person at store or assumes that it’s not available at store. Presence of High Competitor The location is almost in the prime location, which will be in the competitors range as mentioned in the swot analysis, that within the range or distance of almost 8km (at max) we can find all the other rival malls like Easyday, Vishal Mega Mart, National Handloom etc. So any fluctuation in the price range of any one of the nearby malls will fetch customers and can affect the sales of the day. (80)
  • 80. Price Difference At various different Retail malls, there are different marketing strategies and different rate structure. Being organized retail sector reliance can’t deepen its prices without any intimation to the senior official members. It’s not like a kirana shop which can reduce its price whenever they want. Looking at the competitive strategy in the nearby area of Ajmer road the biggest competitor for the Element mall is National Handloom, which keeps its pricing range is quite competitive, which again entice customers to purchase from there. So this segmentation in price quotation makes this Retail competition much more difficult. Customer Walking Space The customers should be able to move freely in the malls so that they can have the proper glimpse of the product they are looking for. This even gives a clean and tidy look for mall. (81)

Sample Design and Data Collection Following is the sample design in terms of obtaining the research objective:Data collection is one of the most important tasks which form the basis of the research with further analysis and conclusion. In our research the data survey details has been fetched from the Reliance survey team on which we have made our analysis and predictions. The research methodology is the combination of both descriptive as well as the exploratory research. In terms of descriptive it is for price benchmarking which is done for the comparative analysis of different retail stores and malls. While in terms of exploratory it suffices for the launch of New Reliance Super mall at Element Mall. Here the secondary data was collected and procured from the following sources and ways:• Visiting the different stores and jotting down the offer prices. • Scanning Daily locals to look for retail offers. • Comparing the local pricing offers and checking out the special weekend offers. In order to do comparative analysis the prices of different stores was required as generally retail companies do not reveal the price list in public, going to store and jotting down the prices and offer was the only option to work on. We also required limited secondary data to carry out multi-dimensional scaling of different retail brands and find out how each of them is perceived. We were supplied with the data of survey by RIL team where the below table was filled by which we simply analysed the tabular data and easily made the conclusion. (84)
