Strategic forward march :BATA The stores operate in a four-tier retail format under a new model -- upmarket flagship stores, smart and trendy city stores and super stores and traditional family stores. This helps the company service its customers better in places where currently it does not have presence. "The large-format stores are mostly franchise-run. The new-design store interiors itself cost the company around Rs 2 crore per store," Bata chairman P M Sinha says.  These new stores have helped Bata to bring its contemporary and trendy range of footwear sold in an international style outlet to customers even in small towns. Rapid expansion and modernisation is one part of the story. The other is shedding flab. Bata has reduced the number of its unviable stores from 140 to 74 and is open to shutting down more such stores in future. The company has close to 1200 stores and 2,000 SKUs in India.

Defence authorities currently source most of its footwear requirement from unorganised players. After eyeing the defence segment, Bata is also moving aggressively into the safety footwear market as a new thrust area for growth.
