A Project usually falls short of its expectation unless guided by the right
person at the right time. Success of a project is an outcome of sincere
efforts, channeled in the right direction, efficient supervision and the most
valuable professional guidance. This project would not have been
completed without the direct and indirect help and guidance of such
luminaries. They provide me with the necessary recourses and atmosphere
conductive for healthy learning and training.
At the outset we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the
very thoughtful and patient guidance we have received from our project

evaluated each and every step in evolving this project report.
Lastly, we would like to thank all the employees and customers of BIG

Innovations of Big Bazaar
Big Bazaar introduced the Wednesday Bazaar concept and promoted it
as “Hafte Ka Sabse Sasta Din”. It was mainly to draw customers to the stores
on Wednesdays, when least number of customers is observed. According to
the chain, the aim of the concept is "to give homemakers the power to save
the most and even the stores in the city don a fresh look to make customers
feel that it is their day".
Sabse Sasta Din:
With a desire to achieve sales of Rs 26 Crore in a one single day, Big
Bazaar introduced the concept of "Sabse Sasta Din". The idea was to simply
create a day in a year that truly belonged to Big Bazaar. This was launched
on January 26, 2006 and the result was exceptional that police had to come
in to control the mammoth crowd. The concept was such a huge hit that the
offer was increased from one day to three days in 2009 (24 to 26 Jan) and to
five days in 2011 (22-26 Jan).
Maha Bachat was started off in 2006 as a single day campaign with
attractive promotional offers across all Big Bazaar stores. Over the years it
has grown into a 6 days biannual campaign. It has attractive offers in all its
value formats such as Big Bazaar, Food Bazaar, Electronic Bazaar and
Furniture Bazaar - catering to the entire needs of a consumer.
The Great Exchange Offer:
On February 12, 2009 Big Bazaar launched "The Great Exchange
Offer", through with the customers can exchange their old goods in for Big
Bazaar coupons. Later, consumers can redeem these coupons for brand new
goods across the nation.

According to Kishore Biyani's 3-C theory, Change and Confidence among
the entire population is leading to rise in consumption. Big Bazaar has
divided India into three segments:
1. India one: Consuming class which includes upper middle and lower
middle class (14% of India's population).
2. India two: Serving class which includes people like drivers, household
helps, office peons, liftmen, washer men, etc. (55% of India's
3. India three: Struggling class (remaining 31% of India's population).
While Big Bazaar is targeted at the population across India one and India
two segments, Aadhaar Wholesale is aimed at reaching the population in
India three segment. With this, Future Group emerged as a retail
destination for consumers across all classes in the Indian society.

the customer delight at Big Bazaar is satisfactory and so many
customers are not aware of the loyalty programs and services provided
by the Big Bazaar which are not provided by other Retail stores.

we did both descriptive and causal research to find about the factors which
Big Bazaar stores needed to work on to improve the customer delight.
Phase 1: Explorative research
The sampling method that used was stratified sampling and in that
simple random sampling method. Stratified sampling was done to get a
sample from different areas of Delhi and NCR regions so that the entire
region is covered. We divided the whole NCR region into 6 strata’s or regions
which were told to visit:
2. East Delhi
3. North Delhi

participative observation technique to analyze the data.

stratified sampling and under which judgment sampling method was used
to select the particular store.
Stratified sampling was done to get a sample from different areas of

The study is only for the big bazaar confined to a particular location
and a very small sample of respondents. Hence the findings cannot
be treated as representative of the entire retail industry.
Respondents may give biased answers for the required data. Some of
the respondents did not like to respond.
Respondents tried to skip some of the statements by simply not
answering them. This was one of the most important limitation
faced, as it was difficult to analyze and come at a right conclusion.
As most of the retail industries did market research before entering into
market, same thing was done by Big Bazaar on the basis of Location,
market, consumer perception. Big bazaar, a part of future group is a
hypermarket offering a huge array of goods with quality for all at affordable
prices. Big bazaar with over 140 outlets in different part of India is present
in both the metro cities as well as in small towns. Big bazaar can attract
more customers by different variety and assortments.
