Benefits to Kirana Shop OwnersKirana store owners, who are members of Best Price Modern Wholesale stores, derive ‘special’ benefits in numerous ways:
A) There are an estimated 12 million kirana stores in India of which as much as 90% are not directly serviced by India’s FMCG majors. Best Price stores offer them access to quality products at the lowest prices they need and when they need them.
B) Assortment, service and store layout of Best Price stores are customized to their specific needs to help them get the benefit of high quality products at best prices to enhance their business profitability.
C) Best Price stores help kirana stores manage their inventory better by enabling them to purchase in quantities they need and at the time they require. They can hence take advantage of Best Price store by using it as their own godown, thus freeing up their capital for business rather than lock it up in inventory.
D) Best Price stores have also created an innovative kirana model “My Kirana” that is tailored for kirana stores to provide them training and insights into areas such as assortment planning, hygiene, in-store displays, inventory management, value added services etc.
E) In addition, different education programs for members with customized modules like taxation, food preparation, food safety and category workshops have also been introduced for different target segments.
