About Mahindra Retail
Mahindra Retail is an extension of the US $14.4 billion Mahindra Group's trading foray in the domestic India market. The Group believes that this is the favourable time to extend its distribution business into direct retailing, when the organized retail market is expanding in India. Apart from distributing toys, games and wellness products under licenses from various international brands like Disney® and Mattel®, NUK®, it has now entered into a unique venture with the launch of Mom & Me stores, which specialize in infant and maternity care.
Mom & Me, the chain of stores from Mahindra Retail has been built around the unique needs of mothers to be, young mothers, infants and children up to the age of nine. The store was built to address the multiple lacunae in the market for maternity and baby products and services. The absence of a single retail outlet addressing mother and child product and non-medical advisory needs is the most critical need gap that Mom & Me seeks to address with a one-stop store for moms and kids across the country. Mom & Me has scoured the world's best brands in various categories and more and has selected a range to stock in their stores giving Indian mothers choices that they have hitherto not enjoyed. Where international brands have found to be lacking, Mom & Me has developed private labels in order to bring products like ethnic fashion for women, infant apparel and traditional Indian toys to their stores for the benefit of the Indian consumer. Mom & Me now has 77 stores across 27 cities, including Delhi, Haryana, Ghaziabad, Noida, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Lucknow, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Indore, Bangalore, Kanpur, Kolkata, Mangalore, Dehradun, Raipur, Chennai, Vizag, Hyderabad, Calicut, and Coimbatore.
