Talk about a household name that is closely associated with retail stores in India and the first name to cross your mind will be Big Bazaar. Big Bazaar’s parent Company, the Future Group, were pioneers in setting up the retail chain store.

Big Bazaar is a hypermarket today with a wide gamut of essentials in 3 categories that is, home, food, and fashion.

Food Bazaar and fbb are Big Bazaar’s food & clothing brands, respectively.

A Quick Look @ Big Bazaar’s Origins

Founded in 2001, Kishore Biyani , the founder of the Future Group, is the brain behind Big Bazaar. A pioneer of modern Indian retail industry, Biyani has been a great source of inspiration to many entrepreneurs in the country for around two decades now.

Big Bazaar opened its first outlet in Kolkata, followed by Bengaluru and Hyderabad in late 2001. There is no looking back for the retail store ever since and it continues to grow continuously. With more than 250 multi-level stores in 120+ cities and towns in India, Big Bazaar is still going strong.

A One-Stop Shop for All Your Needs

Have you ever been to any local Sunday market in your neighbourhood? What is the experience like? We are sure you are tempted to visit the market every week or two specific reasons:

  1. You get to shop for almost everything you can imagine from food to cookware to clothes, all at one place and
  2. All the items available in the market match with your weekly/monthly budget too.

The not-so-bright side of these markets could be the crowd, which might make your navigation not very pleasant & memorable. Also, you may not be very sure of the quality of the products available here (of course, we are not referring to fresh fruits and vegetables but other items meant for home decor, home furnishings, stationary, clothes and so on.)

Enter Big Bazaar

The Indian retail market witnessed a massive disruption in the form of Big Bazaar in the year 2001. With its strong appeal for the urban middle class, Big Bazaar turned the foreign concept of supermarket/large department stores into reality in India.

…and so begins the Chapter of Organized Retailing in India

To put it simply, Big Bazaar brought a refined market experience to everyday shopping. It lured visitors with “the best products at the best prices”.

India’s first Big Bazaar store in Kolkata was purposely designed to reflect the look and feel of Indian bazaars. Consequently, customers discovered the delights of shopping, while wandering through aisles and  filling up their trolleys with diverse products and brands.

Likewise, what clicked the most with visitors was the products were in fact cheaper in some cases when compared to their local store. Everyone was delighted at the concept of picking up their own fruits, vegetables & groceries in a spacious store.

Big Bazaar has since then expanded to include several items, in addition to groceries and fresh food.
