Virtuous Retail commercial retail sector

Virtuous Retail is a visionary group and has brought in global expertise and trends in building world class retail shopping outlets. It provides retail spaces for rent in prime cities like Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Surat and Kolkata.

But, retail spaces are not only about huge shopping malls, they have a lot more in store. Neighborhood shopping centers for instance have increased more than double in the past four years. These hypermarkets or shopping centers offer a viable and easy alternative to people for everyday needs and entertainment. Similarly, the extreme of neighborhood shopping centers, luxury retail, is another major segment as far as retail spaces go. Reports indicate that the spurring growth of the Indian luxury market, will result in a three times increase in demand for luxury products by 2015. Lifestyle retail is another segment of commercial retail spaces and is gaining immense popularity as well.

Another concept that has gained a lot of prominence in retail construction is that of consumer experience design. This is a process where the quality of user experience is kept at the forefront. It is used to design products, processes, services, events, environments and many more things. Consumer experience design is a new and emerging discipline, and draws inspiration from various fields like cognitive psychology and perceptual psychology.

The retail sector though, is a complex and intriguing one, and has various forces at play. While, putting up retail or commercial space up for lease, the concept of tenant relationship management becomes extremely important. The lease may be negotiated by the developer, but to make this arrangement work smoothly, the tenant and the owner of the retail space, i.e., the developer need to come to agreement with the terms and work in a harmonious environment for the duration of the lease.

Retail Management and leasing also play a crucial role in the commercial retail sector. While, the art of Retail Management revolves around promoting greater sales and customer satisfaction, and can only be achieved by getting a better understanding of the consumers and their psyche. On the other hand, leasing is organized by developers of the commercial property.

With growing disposable incomes and the love to spend increasing, the retail sector in India is only expected to flourish. And, with retail developers doing extensive background and trend research, the properties coming up are easily comparable to international standards. The retail sector has opportuniies galore for everyone involved!
