Not just that, Disney is also opening its exclusive store in Lulu.....



Quote:
Set to redefine the shopping culture of Kerala, Lulu Shopping Mall, the biggest in India, located at Edappally bypass will be inaugurated by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on March 10.

The mall will start functioning from 4 pm on the same day. Spread across 17 acres, Lulu Shopping Mall with a space of 25 lakh sqft is built with a cost of `1,600 crore with 55,000 sqft exclusively for the kids.

As many as 320 international and national brands have a presence in the mall, out of which 46 are coming to the state for the first time. According to officials, about 30 new brands including Walt Disney and Barbie will come to the mall soon.

Nine cinema screens with a total capacity of 2,250 seats will open in the mall by early April. Marriot Hotel, which is under construction near Lulu Mall, will be completed before end of this year. The mall has entrance from NH-47 and NH-17.

“This is our first retail venture in India though we have such malls in nine countries in the Middle East. But we already have a strong brand loyalty in Kerala because of the long-standing Gulf connection of the Keralites. Our studies have found that Kerala with fast-rising middle class possessing abundant disposable income offers enormous potential for the operation of such a world-class shopping mall. It is a matter of pride for me that this mall will be among India’s biggest,” said M A Yusuffali, managing director, Lulu Group.

Inside the mall, there is a food court with a capacity for 3500 people and 18 food counters. The first Mac Donald Restaurant in Kerala will be opened at Lulu Mall, said Shibu Philips, business head, Lulu International Shopping Mall.

The mall will have an indoor ice-skating rink, a 5-D cinema hall, bowling alleys, water rides and electronic games. The mall provides a parking area for over 3,000 vehicles. The other facilities include ATM, money exchange, pharmacy, travel and holidays desk and a Federal Bank branch functioning in the mall. The mall expects about 50,000 visitors a day and the expected monthly revenue is `80-`100 crore, said the officials.

“We are all set to provide a total family experience through this mall,” said Nishad M A, director, Lulu International Shopping Mall. The other projects of Lulu group, which own Lulu Shopping Mall, in Kerala include, International Convention and Exhibition Center at Bolghatty, State of Art Wear House and Logistics Centre at Aluva and International Convention Centre and Hotel at Kozhikode.

Well, I don't know how many brands are in common in Mangalore...... But its not good to compare a Tier 1 city like Bangalore with a Tier 2 Kochi... In that cases, take any brand of the world, it might be available in Gurgaon or Delhi.....

If one or two such brands comes to Kerala, it itself will be a game changer...... and it happened in Lulu..........

In Karnataka, when a new store /franchise opens in Bangalore, they can easily extend the same franchise store in other emerging cities of the state, if there is a market potential, as they already got a Karnataka TIN and VAT Number and other registration process........

But when asked to open in a new state, unless they find a potential, they may hesitate as they have to start from scratch........

Anyway it will be a great time to shop here

This Mall will be a great success.The anchor stores will be superb. It will attract a huge crowd right from Thrissur onwards from the North or even beyond .Then ofcourse we will have people from south and east of Kochi.Sometimes I sometimes wonder if 3000 car parking spaces are enough.The other thing I am really happy is the tie up with Mariott. No city in the South can beat Kochi with respect to Hotels.I think it is great going for Kochi.Definitely without any doubt one of the best malls in India .Super ke upar! Enjoy maadi!

For the first year atleast, Lulu is going to attract "tourists" from Malapuram and other parts of North Kerala, in bus loads.

zara, ck and guess????
Was that from a source or just an expectation or compilation of suggestions here?

Realtors in the north go behind zara to pull crowds.

Zara, th, ck, guess, celio, esprit jack jones, vero moda etc in one mall is quite a deal!
