Having said that, our USP is that we follow a cash and carry format wherein the goods are directly diverted from the company to our stores without the interven- tion of distributors.

Promart already has stores in Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Va- dodara. It plans to open outlets in Bharuch, Bhavnagar, Jamna- gar, Surat, Vapi, Valsad, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Pune, Indore, Jaipur, Udaipur, Delhi and NCR in the coming months as part of its next phase of expansion.

Pramod Dwivedi, Head – Market- ing, Ambuja Realty, said: “Raipur is truly loaded with myriad oppor- tunities as it is in a nascent stage of development of real estate and retail. The city embodies a tre- mendous economic potential with an annual growth of 20 per cent and is shaping up as one of the most prominent industrial and commercial hubs of central India.
