Big bargains at Big Bazaar

The retail outlet in Koramangala has neat deals for consumers.

BIG BAZAAR, the retail store at Koramangala, has an exchange offer where you can get rid any old item and get yourself a new one. The offer is applicable to products like utensils, plastics, footwear, luggage accessores, garments, toys, watches, glass, electronics items, and so on. Customers can get their old household items valued. Big Bazaar says it offers better value because old, broken utensils and plastics can be exchanged for as much as Rs. 40 a kilo.

What is more, consumers need not exchange their old items for similar items. They can bring in an old piece of luggage and walk off with a salwar kameez instead. Similarly, old shoes and can exchanged for an electric rice cooker.

According to Mr. Vishnu Prasad, Head Operations (South): "Already we have had cartons full of clothes, old broken plastics, utensils, broken gas stoves, some burnt tavas, broken mirrors, and a broken helmet!"

Big Bazaar was started seven months back and its USP is the availability of consumer goods, from the dish to cook in to the fridge to store in, all under one roof, and at bargain prices.
