Retail as an industry is currently on the boom in most parts of the India. But Chennai, once boasted as the retail capital of India in the days of Foodworlds, Spencers, Viveks etc. had lost sheen in between and now seems to be bouncing back with vigour. Home grown brands like Subhiksha’s, Univercell, NaiHaa etc. are establishing Pan Indian presence.
