If its TATA Starbucks I have no qualms at all, as out of all Indian companies TATA garners credibility like none other.

Sounds more like a stall or a booth inside the supermarket which sells Starbucks products. Might just be a Starbucks coffee machine dispensing drinks for all you know. I think Starbucks would want to make a more impactful entry into a new market than this.

On a sidenote could they not come up with their own logo instead of stealing Costco's.

Not sure what the wholesale part of it was. They have local stuff at MRP, and imported stuff priced higher than Unimart, Lavender, etc. Sure they have more of a variety of products than some of these other stores (but not significantly more) but seriously... who's buying liquid detergent for 3,000-4,000 or q-tips for a couple of hundred when there's perfectly good other alternatives everywhere.

Echoing what Equinox said... It's quite pathetic that a multi-million $ business can't hire marketing/design teams with a bit more finesse and sense of propriety... Plagiarizing Costco? Ugh. (I know this is a deeper business/cultural conversation but the drive factor was noteworthy). I

Well the place is slightly cheaper than Unimart, Lavender etc. for the non bulk items. Bulk
Items I assume will be even cheaper.

And the market is nice because it’s clean, spacious and airconditioned.

They now have more items than how it was in during their initial opening ( and even then stock was already good).

Yesterday late afternoon I guess they had about 250 customers in the store and it was too crowded. Lines at cashiers were also there so I can assume it’s not people just having a look around, though at the moment buying rather fewer items.


Oh and they are openly and continues my referring to Costco when you speak to their managers and even in their local announcements ( which I unfortunately don’t understand but I can hear the word Costco).

We had a spinoff store of Costco in Central America, when I lived there.
