Walmart and other multinational retailers are finding it possible to co-exist with the country’s small shops:

“But kiranas remain an integral part of retailing in India—accounting for 90% of the country’s consumer purchases, they helped the nation’s 1.3 billion people stock up on essentials during a devastating coronavirus wave in April and May. And the tiny stores are emerging as key partners for Amazon, Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries, and Walmart’s Flipkart online unit as they seek to dominate the lucrative $1 trillion Indian retail market.”

P.S. Walmart continues to pursue overseas opportunities and is investing in strong executive leadership for its international division. Are you interested in selling your products in other countries? Our experts can help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
