Tata Group to open 100 exclusive Apple stores

Tata Group’s Infiniti Retail, which runs the consumer electronics store chain Croma, will be an Apple-authorised reseller and set up stores at shopping malls, high-street and neighbourhood locations, the report said.

BENGALURU: Salt-to-software conglomerate Tata Group plans to open 100 stores across the country that will only sell Apple Inc products, a media report said on Monday, citing two people aware of the matter.

Tata Group’s Infiniti Retail, which runs the consumer electronics store chain Croma, will be an Apple-authorised reseller and set up stores at shopping malls, high-street and neighbourhood locations, the report said.

Tata has begun talks with premium malls and high streets and the lease terms include details of brands and stores that cannot be opened near these outlets, a retail consultant aware of the matter told the publication.

Apple and Tata Group did not immediately respond to calls and emails seeking comment. The latest development comes less than two weeks after the report said the Tata Group was in talks to buy Wistron Corp’s only manufacturing facility in India for up to Rs 50 billion ($605 mn).
