In the early 1900s while India was still under the British rule, one of the strongest manifestations of mass awakening was the desire to patronize all that was swadeshi (Made in India).
Great Indian patriots and businessman like Lokmanya Tilak and Sir Ratanji Jamshedji Tata amongst others conceived Bombay Swadeshi Co-Op Stores Co. Ltd, which came into existence on 17th December 1906. It became the first retail organization to be listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange.
In the present age of globalization, the swadeshi movement has little significance. As the store now caters to an audience with a contemporary mindset, the brand was therefore rechristened in December 1995 as The Bombay Store.
The Bombay Store currently operates out of 12 outlets - with its flagship store at Sir. P. M. Road measuring 10,000 sq feet and outlets at Inorbit Malad, Inorbit Vashi, High Street Phoenix , Mumbai Domestic Airport, MG Road-Pune, Inorbit Mall – Pune, Market City – Pune, Prozone Mall Aurangabad, Indiranagar in Bangalore , Panjim-Goa, and new addition at 1 MG Road, Bangalore.
The Bombay Store is the one shopping destination that comes to the customers mind while looking for lifestyle products that are a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional techniques and art forms.
The Company continues to focus on the theme of “Discover a New India.” A store highly recommended by the Travelers’ guide “Lonely Planet”and being rated as the number 1 shopping destination in Mumbai by Trip Advisor.
