As a brand from Pondicherry, we always wanted to have flagship store along with our new F&B entity, Café Py. We are extremely proud with the design of the space which is Instagram-worthy with reclaimed pieces of furniture, artefacts and other elements. We have introduced some DIY services etc in the space to connect to the young traveller crowd that we cater to. From business perspective, very interestingly, we have grown almost 200% from our online business, so currently we are working on our own e-commerce site along with retailing via all leading online trading channels. Going forward, in our brick-and-mortar expansion, we will strengthen our MBO presence along with adding 5 more EBOs to our network.”
